another trip to Holden Beach, North Carolina has come and gone....and what a trip it was.
very tidy re plantings of the grasses that help protect the dunes from washing away (walking on the dunes is prohibited, though some neighbors ignored this rule in order to get "the perfect shot" for their family portraits. schmucks.
the main living area was one big space that took advantage of the views-much better layout than some that we've had in the past.
the kitchen was the best ever! a huge island, tons of dishes/pots/pans, and enough baking sheets that J-Bro and i could bake all the pizzas for pizza night on their own sheet! Bridget thought the place was great!!!
J-Bro and i quickly discovered how wonderful the top porch was for chatting and drinking after breakfast.
it started with some rumbles of thunder, then the sky started to get a little crazy looking. these are some of the houses across the street from us.
then, just as fast as it arrived, the storm was gone. the marshes were replenished. there is something really exciting about a big storm at the beach.
the tide is high. J-Bro and i went for a long walk down the beach and saw all sorts of fish and crabs and things in the tide pools the ocean made one evening.
more beach strolling. i think this was the evening after pizza night (the tradition of pizza night will be discussed in a future post).
last full day at the beach-we took care of the rest of the bourbon, tequila, and almost empty vodkas.
