Visiting Oak Island

Under the Oaks blog : Visiting Oak Island

As I mentioned in Sunday’s post, my family (husband & pets) spent the weekend on the beaches of North Carolina, specifically on Oak Island. It was a much needed time away, a time to disconnect from my work email, the dozens of home projects, and the mounds of laundry and worries. We had a few unplanned adventures (having to call a locksmith late on a Saturday night, or the night we spent hours removing hundreds of burs from our dog). However, the unplanned adventures were far over-trumped by all the fun things we had a chance to do. For your benefit, I’ve compiled a “must do” list whilst visiting wonderful Oak Island.

1) First things first: enjoy a sunset! If you drive to the west end of Oak Island there is a spot where you can park and walk along the banks of the sound (parallel to the Atlantic ocean side). The sunset = unbelievable. I wish I could say I was that amazing of a photographer, but I cannot claim Mother Nature’s work.
