First was our stay in Wilmington, North Carolina.
I loved being ten minutes from the ocean!
And only a few minutes away from the downtown area where it was hard to choose from all of the wonderful restaurants.
(funny thing - I came back seven pounds lighter than when I left - I think it was all of the walking we did).
The weather was absolutely perfect - I couldn't have asked for better.
L-R Cape Fear River, Wrightsville Beach (2), North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher (2), Greenfield Lake (3), Drinks our first night in Wilmington
The reveal, of course, sort of, is the picture of my daughter and me.
Yay, us, !!! we survived a very windy paddle boat ride on Greenfield Lake. I think the impetus we needed to keep paddling was all of the alligators we saw in the lake.
My behind paid the price for several days after - that seat was hard!
Part two was our stay in Myrtle Beach. Except for a stormy, very windy Monday, the weather again was just beautiful.
We stayed in a lovely condominium on the ocean and had the sound of the crashing waves with us twenty-four hours a day (those waves were especially spectacular on that stormy Monday). That is a sound I don't think I could ever get tired of.
It has been difficult to adjust to being back, but I think I'm slowly settling back into my normal routines.
I've discovered that I missed responding to several comments from my last post and I apologize - things got crazy right before I left for my trip.
I tuned out of all social media while I was away and was slow to tune back in when I returned home. I'm slowly trying to catch up with everyone and think I may just about be caught up - I missed you all. 🙂
