Monday Mini Virtual Vacation

Living in Coastal North Carolina has its advantages: mild winters with an occasional cold snap, fresh seafood and sandy beaches. If you’re like me, no matter how mild, winter has worn out its welcome and a warm weather vacation can’t get here soon enough. While I can’t do anything about the temperature, I thought I’d share a little virtual sun and surf with you.  Enjoy!


The Winter Blues

It happens every year about this time.  I enter a phase I can only describe as the winter blues.   I realize that there are some people who have been diagnosed with Seasonal Affective Disorder.  I haven’t.  I love three of the four seasons – with summer being my favorite.  It’s winter that brings me down.  The grey skies.  The cold wind.  It’s enough to bring out my inner bear.  Give me a cave and I’d hibernate.

North Topsail Beach

I’ve considered hitting the tanning bed – and I would if I didn’t worry about wrinkles and skin cancer.   Besides, it’s not a tan I want – it’s the warm weather I crave.  The sunshine.  The feel of the sand beneath my feet – especially after a long day at work.  Spring can’t get here quick enough.
