The beach life is the life for me…
A while back I wrote a post in which I stated I was leaning more toward becoming a mountain person versus a beach person. I was wrong.
The long-standing issue has been my battle with heat and its impact on my MS symptoms. In the last few months my symptoms have been nearly nonexistent (knock on wood) which reinvigorated my love for the shore. Naples reminded me how much I love the ocean.
Evelina and I are headed to the beach house in Cherry Grove, S.C. weekend after next for a couple of relaxing days and I am excited like a kid at Christmas. There is a small town north of the house called Southport that has a quaint fishing village feel with plenty of boutiques, restaurants and a ferry. There’s also a town near the village where my dad grew up called Oak Island and I have so many great memories from my childhood.
When I was a kid we owned a Volkswagen Van and my family would visit Myrtle Beach for vacation. We would always pitch tents at a campground which is the ultimate awesome adventure for a 10-year-old. On our last day we would pack up and head to Oak Island for the day. My dad would tell stories about the island most of which I pass on to Evelina every time we visit. I love the place.
I am so happy to be able to enjoy the heat and the shore again. At any rate, I hope everyone has a great Tuesday. I am spending some time with work friends today and then headed back to Charlotte for the 4th celebration.
