NC coastal tour

from Google Maps

Things have been slow on my blog lately because I was traveling. Several trips with a few generous friends combined to form a tour of the North Carolina coast; the map above shows the trip I took from July 3 to 13. 

I will post more in depth about some of the things I did--I have already posted on my Lake Waccamaw nature walk (here) and first time at Britt's Donuts (here). Below I hit a few highlights. 

We attended a special Independence Day celebration at Lake Waccamaw. The McNeill family has been reading the Declaration of Independence on July 4 for 57 years! 

We spotted alligators at Lake Waccamaw. 

We took in a beautiful sunset in Wrightsville Beach with Lauren's family, including Mommy Jo, who just turned 90 years old. 

I tried Britt's doughnuts for the first time! 

I also lugged two coolers along and did my best to eat healthy with a vacation splurge here and there. 

We visited the turtle hospital in Topsail on likely its most popular day of the year. 

I sent postcards to my family and wished I had thought of it sooner so I could send them from each of my stops. 

We stayed at a house with a cat who snuggled up to Hillary. I love cats, but she does not, so I had to capture it.

We strolled theBeaufort waterfront, always lovely. This house was decked out, and I want to move in. 

I enjoyed my trip, and I'm so thankful for friends who invited me to join them at the coast!
