If introverts recharge alone and extroverts recharge with friends, I am a beachtrovert. Nothing fills my cup quite like time by the sea! Apparently this runs in our family because Mazen absolutely loves the beach. He spent hours in our last few days just sitting in the surf and gazing at the ocean. We were lucky to get a few days with really calm waves that were ideal for swimming together, and he loved showing me how brave he was in the (small) waves. Also, we did not see a drop of rain all week, and for that I could not be more thankful!
We went to Jockey’s Ridge at sunset one evening, and M thought the giant sand dunes were the coolest.
So much space to run!
Ice cream after!
Followed by late-night crab hunting. He LOVED this!!
Smoothies for breakfast:
Open-faced BLT melts for lunch with a beer on the last day:
Pirate sand castle!
Cocktail hour on the beach is the best!
The Golden Strand where I used to stay with my parents for years:
Dinner out at Goombays. They have a cute kids cocktail menu that features this Shirley Temple that came with the grenadine in the shark. M got to pour it in himself. So cool!
Coconut shrimp + crab cake salad for me!
More ice cream for dessert! [His outfit!!!]
So many great memories <3
