And it will also help stall until I have my fall decor post ready!!
This was our first vacation (besides our staycation) since our honeymoon. I so wish we could have stayed another week...I feel like the beach was natural medicine. It renewed my energy and just took away all of the stress.
Tim's parents rented a townhouse in this cute place for the week!! Of course we didn't get any pics of all of us...gah!
Isn't it darling?
I have an old pic of me w/ this Elvis but I can't find it....
The weather was perfect but it did get darker earlier. And it did rain the last day but I still enjoyed every minute.
What? You thought we didn't bring Artie?? Haha he even claimed a beach chair!
It took him a while to warm up to the ocean. But he sure did have fun digging in the sand!
Somebody didn't want to cooperate...
We went to Michaelangelo's for dinner. They have the best pizza! Unfortunately the shops were closed so we had to go back the next day.
Tim convinced me to get up early the next morning to take Artie on a beach walk. It was worth it.
We went back and changed for an earlier day on the beach/ at the pool. Later in the afternoon we did some antique shopping. I got lots of goodies (some of which you will see in the fall decor post). We went to Riverside Steak and Seafood for dinner. We remembered it from last time because of their insanely good Sweet Potato muffins. (Can you tell I love food?) Tim and I split 3 appetizers including the blackened scallop nachos!!!
The last day it rained so we drove to Historic Beaufort (my favorite) Artie was glad to head home but we sure weren't.
Wanted to bring this home for Fall but it was $100 I am too much of a bargain shopper for that...
Do you ever take family vacations later in the season? Have you ever been to Emerald Isle, Swansboro or Beaufort??
