After a recent weeklong stay at Ocean Isle Beach in North Carolina, I can confirm that there is such a thing as salt therapy. It does a body good to plop on the sand, splash in the ocean, and soak in the sun. Doing so with your family is even better.
Ocean Isle is such a relaxing place with a slower pace that I enjoy so much while recharging from my daily life. I do work while at the beach but there’s something about doing work on a beach chair in the sand, or from a wicker sofa on a deck in the sun, that really makes the time spent working not so rough.
Normally, Ocean Isle is the place for collecting seashells but this year was pretty much a bust. We did find a few good specimens but for the most part, the shells were hard to find. That’s super weird but I chalk it up to high tides all week and the lack of storms in the area that stir up the good stuff.
Speaking of weather, it was perfection! Warm days, cool nights, no rain… loved it! I was expecting it to be much more hot and humid than it was but was certainly grateful for the pleasant temps.
The food was good, we hit up all the usual spots that we visit while in the area. A couple of days at Myrtle Beach for dinner and some time at the outlets rounded out the non-beach time. This trip was mostly about hanging out at our rental house and spending time together and I think we accomplished that quite well.
Til’ next time!
