Ever read a Nicholas Sparks book or seen a movie? No? Ok let me explain it for ya. Sandy beaches, southern accents, kind people, sand dunes, warm water and always based in the South. Pretty much describes a week at Ocean Isle Beach plus so much more (paddle boarding, coronitas, night swims, good food and amazing company.
Every summer my boyfriend’s family goes to this magical little beach off the coast of North Carolina and I have been lucky enough to go for the last four years. There are books to be read, drinks to be drunk, conversations to be had and porch rocking and lounge chair naps-and I haven’t even gotten to the food. Pulled pork, chicken salad sandwiches, ‘helluva good dip’ and my personal favorite PIMENTO CHEESE. It’s a wonder we don’t all gain 20lbs while we’re there.
Also this was definitely the summer of Junie and Theo! From big gummy grins and chuckles to funny little sayings, ‘what dat boy?!’ there was never a dull moment.
Until next year OIB I’ll be dreaming of your cool summer nights, good food, all the babies and the best company.
