Last week, we spent a long weekend visiting family near Southport, North Carolina. I always enjoy our trips south so I can relax with the family, hear people say “y’all”, “Bless your heart” and refer to Iced Tea as “Sweet Tea”…
The weather was hot and humid reaching the high 90’s but we spent a lot of time inside and at the pool. We also walked around Southport. It is such a charming little southern town!
I love all the big porches.
Most of them were decorated with rocking chairs.
(So southern ya’ll…he he)
The kids loved walking out on the docks to watch people fish.
This fish actually started flipping around on the dock
and almost got away!
The kids loved feeding the seagulls.
(I always enjoy these Alfred Hitchcock moments.)
We had a lovely dinner at a beautiful golf club.
Since we had a large party,
we were able to use the wine room.
Sidenote: I tried to tour the local Coastal Living Idea House.
But of course it was CLOSED when I arrived!
We did though, get to tour a model for a new “Seaside” development.
The interior was very beachy.
Lots of seaside colors and accents.
Overall, it was a pleasant trip south. Though, I was not thrilled with the “Dash 8” plane we had to fly in on…Small planes make me nervous. (Who am I kidding? – ALL planes make me nervous!) But we had a wonderful time with family and that is all that matters! (Well that, and we didn’t crash!)
Have you planned any family vacations
And do you drink
“sweet tea” or “iced tea” where you live?
