I decided to do another photo an hour on the day we drove to the beach. Not really sure why I choose to do photo and hours on road trip days, maybe because these photos don't really seem to fit into a post of their own, but I still want to share them.. Anyway!
On the road, driving into the sunrise!
A quick stop at W House for some breakfast. It's becoming a fun tradition to stop for breakfast at a Waffle House on a road trip, in a town we've never been to.
Bored in the car, and seeing this truck made me remember how good English Muffins are and gave me a serious craving. A craving that I could not satisfy, so I took a picture instead. Steven said "What are you doing?? Don't take a picture of that truck!! o_0"
Stopped at a Sheetz for fuel. I was a little too excited about seeing this screme egg..
The second half of the journey to the beach take us through lots and lots of farmland.
BEACH! By the time we get to the big bridge I am about to fly out of my seat from excitement. I think I may have screamed when I first sighted the water. Probably a good thing I wasn't the driver.
Since our check in wasn't until 3, we drove straight to the beach access and ran to the ocean. It was a really fun thing to just drive straight to the beach, not stopping at our hotel first.
Picked up a few groceries and checked out a couple shops, including this bookstore that sold all kinds of Outer Banks history books that I wanted to buy.
Checked in to our Sand Dollar motel! The first time we stayed here we could barely afford the cheapest tiny cramped room with a tiny bed. This time we finally moved to the top, and stayed in the king suite, which included a little kitchen, a couch and a table! We felt like kings.
Resting on the bed and watching HGTV. It's probably a good thing we don't have cable at home. That stuff is addictive.
5:00 PM Consisted of more HGTV and eating cereal.
Back to the beach for an evening walk
7:00 and 8:00 PM
Still walking on the beach and then heading back to our room for more HGTV!
We had such a fun trip and I can't wait to share all my photos!
