This Saturday was our first trip to the beach! Ahhhh, this is why we moved to Raleigh. Within 2 hours we were on the beach munching on deli sandwiches and enjoying the sun.
Evidently I need that color changing sunscreen because I missed putting enough protection on my chest and have lobster boobs. I had bugged Brian repeatedly to make sure he was covered in adequate sun block – need to take my own advice.
Despite our small areas of skin bake, we napped, we read, we put our toes in the ocean. It was far too cold to swim although we did see crazy kids body surfing.
After shaking off the sand, we dined at Sear’s Landing Grill and Boat Dock. They had my naughty favorite of Bloody Marys for 3 bucks each. We split a pound of shrimp, tried the crab fritters, and each got a side of corn bread for Brian and slaw for me. All pretty damn delicious, but food is always better after a day at the beach. The major plus of this restaurant is the view. Since it’s also a boat dock it’s right on the sound. Pretty place for a evening dinner.
