it’s hot

Hola Cottage Fix friends! How’s your summer going? It’s hot here, week after week of hot. This past weekend Honey and i hopped on our bikes and headed to the nearby trail for a morning hike, something that has become somewhat of a weekend ritual for us. As we pulled in to park our bikes along the fence, I could feel a warm breeze coming off the shore and was greeted by the scent of the drying river bank. It’s […]

Cottage Fix beach days

Hola Cottage Fix friends! The beach was so lovely this past Sunday with cool clear water and a soft breeze. Even though these are the waters of the Chesapeake Bay, sometimes the dolphins make there way here to swim and play in the gentle waves. Unfortunately, the jellies glide on in too. The highlight of our day was feeding the seagulls Sun Chips, they get all feisty and funny. Pretty and  unusual red sails. This seagull was the boss! Grin! […]

Cottage Fix something beachy

Hola Cottage Fix friends! We’re melting into summertime here on the East Coast and the heat and humidity are right here with us. Honey took last week off and we spent a few days on the Outer Banks of North Carolina sinking our feet into the sand and soaking up the sun. We drifted into deep chill mode enjoying three full days of sunshine, shell hunting, and ocean waves, and then ended the week with a bit of a stay-cation. […]

a road trip to South Nags Head, NC

We’re just back from our trip to South Nags Head where we were hard at work doing the beach – pool, beach – pool, beach – pool thing. It was a fun few days with family and friends making memories that we will cherish. These are a few shots from my iPhone while we were there. The waves were big and choppy…   The view of the sand and sea from our deck… A sandpiper fleeing from a crashing wave… […]

day trip by the shore

We had such a lovely day on Wednesday at one of our local beaches; it’s just as dreamy as the beaches of the Atlantic in it’s own way. These are the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. While we were there the water was clear and cool, a little choppy,  and we saw a pod of dolphins swim by. We ate salads and baguette sandwiches, chatted about the summer, swam in the small waves, and soaked up the warm sun.  It […]

to the beach!

Hola Cottage Fix friends! Well, summer is truck truckin’ along and here on the east coast we’re soaking it in. We’re taking advantage of our local beaches more than ever this year, heading out with picnics on the weekends.  And we just got home from a super fun road trip to the Outer Banks. I recently got the opportunity to try out a new beach towel from Aurorae. A nice beach towel really does make all the difference when trekking in […]

sea breezes and sunshine

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 […]
