Who doesn't love a paid holiday?
Labor Day is a bittersweet holiday--it's the unofficial end of summer but a great excuse to take a mini vacay!
This year we took a hop, skip, and a jump down to Ocean Isle Beach where my grandparents have a home.
It's the perfect family beach half way between Wilmington, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC.
I grew up coming to this beach, so it's extra special to me, and sharing it with my hubby makes me extra happy!
Check out all of our adventures...
Day 1 - We survived hurricane Hermine! That called for lunch at Sharkey's and an afternoon of cozying up on the couch!
So glad I packed my Hunter Wellies!
By the next morning, the storm had passed, and the skies were clear; the air was fresh, and the temperature was cool--
perfect conditions for a morning run down to the beach!
Our cute accommodations for the weekend!
Finally some time on the beach!! We were lucky enough to have two perfect days!!
Dinner at our favorite place - The Provision Company at Holden Beach (just the next island over).
It's definitely a hole-in-the-wall type of place, but the atmosphere is FUN and the shrimp burgers are
OUT OF THIS WORLD!
A morning paddle board sesh in the canal! It's the perfect way to exercise and look at the pretty houses :)
We spent our last night in - ordered pizza, played corn hole, drank gin & tonics, and played
one epic game of cards against humanity!
It's always sad to leave the beach, but we made the trip home a special one!
A pit stop at our favorite Ice-Cream/Farm stand for some fresh fruit & a snack! Peaches & Cream is a MUST.
Cheers to a fun and fabulous weekend at the beach!
I hope you all had safe, fun Labor Day weekends. Until next year...the beach will be waiting!
