We love being able to see the boats come and go as we eat and we always take a walk out onto the dock after dinner to check out the boats up close.
On our last day of vacation we soaked up last much fun in the sun as we possibly could. The kids kept saying they wished we lived at the beach and I have to say I agreed with them. I don't know what it is about being near the ocean, but I just love the coastal-Carolina vibe that this town exudes. It brings back so many memories of my childhood spent on this beach and I love that I'm able to share it with my kids today.
The girls collected shells all week long. We just kept putting them into a bucket, but since we were heading home the next morning we washed them all really well outside with the hose and I sent the girls on the porch to have them dry. I was expecting they would just dump them out and spread them out a little bit. When I went out to check on them I was shocked by how organized they were. They were SO proud of their collections and have many plans for them at home.
Late that afternoon a storm rolled in and it was the only rain we had all week. We could not have had better luck with the weather. After dinner the storm had passed and at the girls were excited because it meant they could go on one last walk with Mimi and pick up just a few more shells, too!). They are sporting their new t-shirts, which was what they both picked out as their souvenir from WINGS earlier in the week. :-)
We had a wonderful week and were all sad to go home, but with school right around the corner, it was time for us to head back. I'm so thankful my kids love the beach as much as I do and I'm already looking forward to our next beach trip!
