Hello there Cottage Fix friends! It was so nice to get away for a long weekend of sea breezes and sunshine, free from schedules. The water was a gorgeous aqua blue and full of marine life when we arrived in Corolla, North Carolina on Friday. We saw hundreds of fish flapping and popping up from the shore and pod after pod of dolphins swimming and leaping by. Apparently someone down the beach from us spotted a “shark”, but Mr. Manley says it probably was not. I still got into the water though, all the way up to my ankles. Grin.
I’m sure our beach trips are much the same as yours; toes in the sand, soaking up the sun, drifting off to sleep in the salty air, and just relaxing big time. We managed to wrangle up fish tacos for two of our meals, man they were delicious! We fell in love with fish tacos when we lived in California and now we order them every time we’re at a restaurant near good fishing. I’ve even learned how to make them myself in case of a fish taco emergency.
We bought fresh produce and brought home tomatoes, watermelon, and peaches to munch on this week. Isn’t this the cutest little roadside produce stand! There’s nothing like a home grown or farm fresh sweet juicy summer tomato. One of my favorite things in life I’m sure.
A storm rolled in the last night we were there and we watched the lightning strike over the water (from a safe distance in the shelter of our hotel room). The next morning the ocean had turned a grayish blue.
We took one last morning walk before it was time to head home.
On the way home again, bloggedy blog.
