Our week at Bald Head has come to an end. I always think that the best vacations are the ones that leave you yearning for a little bit of normalcy and that make going home feel right. We are reset and recharged (and 50 shades tanner).
I had simple breakfasts, sandwiches for lunch and shrimp and wine for dinner almost every night! I can’t wait to tell you more about these Quaker Overnight Oats cups this week. They are so perfect for travel!
Yogurt bowls are always a beach staple for me. No dishes to do!
I made a half sandwich stuffed with turkey or ham, cheese, mixed greens, and pickles for lunch most days. Green peppers when we had them!
It’s so much easier to take a sandwich to the pool than a salad, but boy, am I craving salads now!
We did get in some exercise — a beach bootcamp and some long walks. And plenty of rolling around in the surf!
We went to the Shoal’s Club for the day once and splashed in the pool. The beach there had the most incredible tide pools!
Grammie and Pea tumbling around with Mazen in the surf!
We had glorious cocktail hours on the porch with cheese and crackers, chips and guac and the like.
Thomas and I made a low country boil, although since our pot was so small we roasted half of it (the potatoes, green beans and sausage) and that worked out quite well!
Larbs made her famous ice cream pie:
On our final night, we went to the marsh for a toast —
My parents bought a marsh house here on the island!
If you can’t tell, our whole family loves this magical place, so we are thrilled to call a piece of it our own.
