We just got back from boogie boarding and wave jumping, and I’m sitting on the deck enjoying the breeze while Lucy naps. I am trying to soak in every ounce of sunny relaxation before we head home tomorrow! Here are a few pics from the last couple of days, which included:
A beautiful kayak tour through the “maritime forest,” which reportedly is what holds the Outer Banks together. Without those woods chocked full of wildlife and man-made canals of brackish water, the Outer Banks would have nothing stabilizing it. We didn’t get any pics on the trip, as we left anything not waterproof in the car. But it was gorgeous!
Sunset Bar, where everybody got special drinks, including Lu (lemonade)!
A concert in the park, where Lucy danced until she literally dropped (into my lap), and soon after was in bed asleep!
More kite-flying and wave jumping!
And today I think may have been our best beach day yet. The breeze was out, the sky was blue, and the surf was up! Lucy even tried “surfing.”
We will miss the beach, but are thankful for this week of fun memories and family time! And I was going through old pics and realized just how far Lucy has come! Here’s a comparison: beach trip 2012 (terrified of the ocean) vs. beach trip 2014 (in love with the ocean). Maybe it’s time to toss that cherry swimsuit? Can you tell it’s her favorite? >
