Oak Island Getaway - Parts 2 and 3
On Monday and Tuesday, we enjoyed the beautiful weather on the beach. Grandpa set up our "beach village" and Reagan had a wonderful time exploring the calm waters and various finds in the sand. She still loves the water and attempts to walk right in when she thinks no one is watching! Grandma packed delicious lunches for all of us so we wouldn't have to walk back to the house. The beach was practically empty (save a few fishermen) and we couldn't have had a better time.
One of the MANY birds that tried to partake in our lunch picnic!
Dolphins spotted behind a small fishing boat!
On Tuesday evening, we headed to the Fish House Restaurant at the Blue Water Point Marina for an anniversary dinner (sans Jason of course). Reagan sported her Carolina dress (courtesy of Grammy Betty) and we all enjoyed a wonderful meal. After dinner, we drove around and saw some of the huge houses on the island.
Seriously, I couldn't resist putting Reagan inside this giant clam shell:)
Appetizers: Softshell crab Cesar salad & Calamari
