Enjoying the Beach!

Our BALCONY is up there above George's head.
Today I will share with you some of the things that George and I DID during our visit to Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina last week...

Sometimes we SAT on our BALCONY and just enjoyed watching the waves flow in and out.  The picture above shows our room. The room is almost in the middle of this picture. We are on the top floor (right above the Gazebo) on the left end of that building.   We also sat on the balcony and watched the boats  out in the ocean.  We sat out there in the evenings and watched the moon rise over the water.. Awesome!!!  (Be sure to enlarge all pictures for bigger views.)

We WALKED and WALKED on the beach!!!  Great Exercise also!
We took MANY walks on the beach ---off and on each and every day.  One reason we love this area this time of year is that there aren't too many people around.  The beach is almost OURS!!! 

We PHOTOGRAPHED many things on and around the beach.
We both took many photos on the beach ---as you can imagine... I think we took about 1000 pictures together all during this trip!!!!! ha

She SAT in the SUN hoping for a good TAN!
One of us worked on our TAN.  (At least we didn't get sunburned this time!!!  Thank God for sun-block!)

We PLAYED in the WATER!!!
We even played in the water when we got hot!!!  I'll admit that we didn't get very wet ---but a little sea water goes a long way!!!!! ha

One of us got alot of reading done this week---while the other person did something much more important.....  Guess what that was????

She SNOOZED!!!!!

She SLEPT!!!!!!  While George caught up on his reading,  I caught up on the zzzzzzzzz's. 

Finally,  another important reason for our beach trip was to visit some of our favorite seafood restaurants in the area.  Breakfast is served for us at the Islander Inn each morning.  We skip lunch --so that we can really enjoy a good dinner.    The picture above was taken on Sunday night (5/6).   We had a fabulous seafood dinner at TWIN LAKES RESTAURANT near Sunset Beach.

Hope you enjoyed seeing a few of the things we DID while at the beach.  Next week,  I will share with you some of the things we SAW while at the beach!!!!!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.  We hope to slow down a little!!!  We've been on the road again this week.  On Wednesday,  we drove to Georgia to visit my son and his bride-to-be.  Then yesterday,  we drove to Tullahoma to visit Dad Adams.  Both were great trips--but I'm ready to be quiet for a few days!!!!!   I'll see you on Monday!
