On Tuesday, it started raining on Wrightsville Beach shortly after the girls and I (along with Grandma Judy and my niece Mya) finished eating lunch at The Oceanic. We had torrential rain storms for several hours, as well as severe thunder and lightning. In fact, lightning struck the hotel elevator, so we had to carry some of our luggage up 8 flights of stairs. After the rain stopped, the indoor pool was closed due to lightning, so we decided to walk along the beach and play in the ocean. It was a perfect evening, and the sunset was beautiful!
