The Beach

After we left Ohio, we had about a week to get settled before Jared started work and the weather was sunny and pleasant so naturally, one of our first stops was the beach! On our
way, we made a quick stop at the home of "Grave Digger" for a photo-op and then we went on to Jockey's Ridge State Park. Jared and I both agree, it is the best place to let kids run free. It is a huge sand dune so they can't get lost, they can't drown (or get hurt really) and there is nothing
for them to break. After Jockey's Ridge we went to Nags head to see the ocean and our last stop was an Aquarium on Roanoke Island. It has since cooled off but I'm excited to make some more day trips to the beach when the weather warms up again!

i love the carolina beaches. the sand is so smooth and fine. looks so relaxing to take the family to a secluded spot and run around in the waves and dunes.

your life is looking pretty perfect, kim! :-)

Nothing like having an ocean within driving distance. This looks like a really good time.
