Well, I've been in Southern Shores, NC, all week and having a lovely time. It's a funny place, if you look at a map: just a slip of island, barely wider than 1/4 mile in places. Tiny towns dotted along the water, and gorgeous homes on both sides of the highway that winds its way north and south. Kitty Hawk, site of the Wright Brothers' famous first flight attempts, is right down the road, and it's a neat place to visit. Unbelievable to think how far technology has come in less than a century!
Hubby and I rented a house for the week with 5 other couples, and it's been a great mid-summer break. The weather is great, the company fun, and every day relaxing. It's one of those vacations where your bathing suit stays damp all day long, you're not sure exactly what time (or day) it is, you eat and drink more than you probably should, and you can smell the ocean air and feel the salt on your skin and in your hair whenever you step outside. I've even finished 3 books on my Summer TBR list...and I'll share those next week when I'm back home!
