annual north topsail beach vacation

a few weeks ago husband, the dog and myself packed up our swimsuits and a whole lotta food and beer and headed to the coast!  this was our second summer in a row staying in north topsail beach, and i fall more in love with it each time i go!  it's dog friendly, uncrowded, and there's lots of good seashells to be found!  my parents joined us as well, and it was so nice to spend some relaxing quality time at the beach with my family (they hadn't vacationed at the beach in years, which is crazy because they live in florida!  i think they really enjoyed being there).  the weather was a bit rainy (we at least got in one full beach day), but we had plenty of food, movies, and louie cuddles to keep us entertained in the meantime.  it cleared up each night long enough for us to enjoy looking for shells on the beach while watching the sunset (great time to take photos too, the lighting is so beautiful you don't even need to edit the pictures).  we lounged on sandbars, ate lots of delicious fresh seafood, and got some much needed rest and relaxation!  here's a look:

"i'm ready to go to the beach,  mom!"

my parents are adorable!

beach treats!

we ventured out on a sandbar that went really far out at low tide!  there were areas where the sand dipped down and formed our very own private pools  :)

the boats pull right up and deliver their fresh seafood!  we went here twice to pick up some shrimp and grouper.  it sure was tasty!

the grill masters!

louie loves his grandparents!

i sure do love me a good cactus!

this deer lives on the island, we spotted her munching on someone's knockout roses in their yard.  she's certainly chosen a nice place for a home  :)

it's safe to say that he loves the beach!

the sunsets were amazing!

until next time, topsail!  we will definitely need to make this a yearly tradition!
