Beach vacation 2017

Back in March during track out, my friend Lindsey and I were talking about going to the beach for a day. We couldn't make it happen then, so we put it on our calendar for June. Then she told me that they rented a house at the beach for a week in June and we should join them for a day or two. We decided to rent a place for a few days, and we are so happy we did!

It was our first time at Atlantic Beach, and we liked the quaint houses and cute town. We stayed in a two bedroom, two bath condo one street away from the beach. Our friends came over for dinner on Thursday evening after we made a quick trip to the beach on arrival.

Checking out the waves!! (Terrible rip currents took the lives of quite a few people in the past two weeks, so we were very careful about getting in the water.)

On Friday, we walked to the public beach with our friends since there were tidal pools for the toddlers to play in and lifeguards to help keep everyone safe. It was awesome to have friends to hang out with there!


After jason and I had a nap, and Nicholas and the big kids went swimming at our friends pool, we headed to dinner at Sanitary Fish Market in Morehead City. We tried Amos Mosquito's first but it was too packed even though we arrived when it opened at five. Our dinners were yummy, and the kids got to see the boats outside as an added bonus.

On Saturday our friends headed back, but we had one more day. We spent the morning at the very windy beach...

Then in the afternoon we went to the NC aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. The kids liked the sharks and touching the rays!


Then after Jason's late nap, we walked on the beach to the pier. We found so many sea shells as the tide was coming in!



This morning we took a break from packing to walk on the road to the pier and walk out onto it. It should have been faster, but it wasn't due to dead end streets. But, we saw a fisherman catch a small shark and we all got to touch it!
