Beauty at the Beach

While my mom visited us in NC a couple weeks ago,
Savannah, Grandma Judy, Donna, and I spent
October 10-12 relaxing in Wrightsville Beach, NC:

We stayed at the lovely Shell Island Resort:

Our hotel was surrounded by water on three sides:

The Ocean Side

The Sound Side
(at high tide)

The Sound Side
(at low tide)

Marshes in the Sound

View from our Hotel Room

During our first two days at the beach,
the weather was cloudy, chilly, and VERY windy.

We ate lunch at our favorite restaurant on the island,
The Oceanic, which overlooks the Atlantic Ocean.

Beach Side of The Oceanic

Beautiful ocean views--even on a cloudy day!

Oceanic Pier

Moody Skies

Check out the sea foam!

After lunch at The Oceanic, we ate hot glazed doughnuts 
at Krispy Kreme--a NC tradition. 

On the third day of our beach trip, the weather was 
warm and sunny with Carolina blue skies.

Savannah was so brave. 
She loved getting her feet wet and running in the water.
