|Islander Inn, Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina (A view from our room)|
Many of you know that we have taken this trip most every year since we got married in 2001. We first stayed at Cherry Grove Inn in North Myrtle Beach, and when they tore that gorgeous little inn down in order to build another huge high-rise in that area, we then moved to Ocean Isle and have been coming ever since.
Some years we came in May, other years in December, and other years, both times!!! I personally prefer December since May has gotten so crowded. Last year was the first time I think we didn't get to come at all (due to my hospitalization plus deaths and other illness in our family).It was great to get back this year!
My Theme for these upcoming posts this year is "What we Love about the Beach"... Hope you enjoy today's post (with at least 2 more to come on other dates)... Note picture above... One thing we LOVE about being here is the Islander Inn where we stayed... Having an Ocean-Front room is so awesome. It is a TRUE vacation for us!
|From inside our room ---looking out at our balcony ---and the Atlantic Ocean! Another thing we loved was sitting outside on our balcony, drinking some Hot Tea and doing our Devotions from there!!!|
|Another of my favorite things to do this time of the year is waking up each morning to see a gorgeous SUNRISE from our balcony.. WOW!|
|Another thing we enjoy is walking on the beach! George is 'patiently'??? (ha) waiting for me to join him!!!!!!!|
|Love the Palm Trees and the dunes!!!!|
|Looking back from the beach at the Islander Inn; Our building is the one to the left of the Gazebo, and our room was the top left!!!|
|Walking on the beach is WONDERFUL --especially this time of year when there are NOT many people around!!!! LOVE it....|
|What do we do while on the beach??? We get a great walk in, and we take lots of pictures.|
|We also love watching and HEARING the waves!!!|
|This old woman absolutely loves walking on the beach! (It was a cold, windy day --but still, so much fun!)|
|We enjoy walking down to the Fishing Pier ---and I always love the REFLECTIONS.|
|After our walk on the beach, we enjoyed some REST time in the Gazebo.|
|Finally, after a wonderful day, we enjoyed seeing the gorgeous skies --after SUNSET.|
Have a blessed week, my Friends.
