This happened on May 24, 2020.
North Carolina has many things to do that Iowa does not. One of those things (and likely my favorite), is BEACHES!! I adore trips to the ocean. Since we had been through weeks, or even months of planning, and a long, stressful move, Jarrod and I decided to treat ourselves and the family to a trip to the beach for some fun before resuming normal life. It just so happened to be Memorial Day weekend, which we weren’t trying to celebrate necessarily. But we went anyway (except Evan, who decided not to join us).
It is a 2-hour drive from our home to get to the closest beaches. We drove straight there and found a decent parking spot after a bit of driving around looking. We spent about 3 hours in the water. The beach flag was red, so the water was pretty rough. But we all had a blast! It was exactly what we needed.
Also, this was Felix’s first trip to the ocean. Lots of pictures, but I’ll share only a couple here.
