On July 14th, I got to ride with my family from Maryland to Caswell Beach on Oak Island in North Carolina. We rented a 2nd floor condo unit for the week. The second floor was really more like 4th story, because it was on a hill (steps up the hill), and the "first floor" entrance was up a flight of steps, too! We got a lot of exercise carrying all our stuff inside! But the view from the balcony was awesome! We could see the beach and the Atlantic Ocean from our balcony!
My friends and I enjoyed hanging out on the balcony, listening to the ocean and feeling the moist wind from off the water!
Here's a photo of me, with my friends, Lisa and Hitty Rachel.
We liked to take walks on the beach in the late afternoon and evening, when the sun wasn't so hot.
Even with a pony tail, it was hard to keep the wind from blowing your hair in your face!
We meet a couple little girls who had built a sand castle, and they let me get my picture taken with it! They said they have an American Girl at home, too! Isn't that neat?
I couldn't wait to tell Kanani and Lanie about how the locals here try to help the sea turtles! On a few other nights, we got to see how they set up a path for the baby turtles to get to the ocean, but we didn't have our camera with us then. This beach doesn't allow lights after dark, because the turtles like it to be very dark when they make the journey from their nest to the sea.
Here I am on the boardwalk that goes over the sand dunes between the road and the beach.
Stay tuned for another post about some other things I saw while I was on vacation!
