We are heading back to Cville this morning and wrapping up a lovely visit to Bald Head. It’s always such a beautiful place to visit! We all had a great time. Can’t wait to return when the weather is warm!
We did venture out to the beach, but boy was it chilly!! Mazen didn’t care at all though and was soaked from head to toe in 20 minutes. He loved running through the tide pools!
For dinner after our big brunch on Sunday we stayed in and had an indoor picnic.
No one was that hungry, so we snacked on cheese and bread, vino and a Caesar salad I bought at the market for some vegetables!
Breakfast the next morning was Irish Soda Bread (from home!) plus fruit and hard boiled eggs.
Mazen LOVED unwrapping the egg, but he didn’t seem to want to taste it at all. This would be such an ideal lunch box food for him, so I’m going to keep encouraging it!
I chipped away at a little bit of work each day – laptop with a view! I also went on a nice run – about 4.5 miles – around the island again. Plus the walking we did, I totaled about 7 miles for the day!
Post-run leftover Caesar salad plus leftover mahi mahi and olives on top.
Monday evening we went to the Bald Head Island Club for dinner.
We shared this scrumptious melted pimento cheese dip with chips for an appetizer
I had a seafood gumbo for dinner topped with cornbread croutons!
Tuesday morning’s breakfast looked a lot like Monday’s but I had a fried egg on the side instead of a hard-boiled one.
After breakfast, I took M to rent bikes! We had high hopes for a tandem, but he was still a little too small to reach the pedals. So instead we tried a trailer for the first time and he loved it! I pulled him all around the island for over an hour.
For lunch I brought mom and me salads from Delphina’s – mango, jicama, shrimp, orange.
And then we packed up and went back to the beach. It was still breezy and freezing! Mazen still didn’t care – he insisted on wearing shorts and a t-shirt and didn’t see cold at all! I guess this is why when we were little Larbs and I would beg to get on our bathing suits and slip n slide. Kids just don’t get as cold!
The grown-ups had beers
And then we all hunted for sea shell treasure like pirates!
Tuesday night we ate our final dinner at Delphina’s, which is probably my favorite restaurant on the island! I had a marg to start – with salt please!
Then we shared the chips n dips. Always a crowd pleaser, especially when Mazen announces “Guacamole is made from avocados!!”
And finally I had two soft shell crab tacos, which were SO good!!!!
Sea ya soon Bald Head!
