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.

This Summer: A Photo Recap

If you’ve been following the blog or my Instagram or Twitter you’ve seen how busy my Summer has been. I still laugh thinking back to when Jason said that this year needed to be vacation-less because last year was so crazy. This has definitely been our busiest Summer yet and even though we still have one major-ish vacation left I wanted to share some of my favorite memories that you may or may not have seen.

The top two photos are from Memorial Day, Jackson’s first time at the beach! He was such a beach-bum we can’t wait to bring him back! The other picture was our view from the top balcony of the house we rented. It was a fantastic place!
