This weekend I headed out to Carolina Beach in Wilmington with my family! It was an after thought so we were there for less than half a day but I'm glad we went. If I'm not mistaken, the last time I went to the beach was 2 years ago when my brother and his the fiancee came down to visit from Jersey. We went to Myrtle Beach for the day and it was so fun! Carolina Beach is a lot smaller but just hanging out in the water with my nephew was SO relaxing. Honestly, both he and I felt so good after getting out of the water..and I mean literally. I think our skin got a little exfoliation treatment from the salt and sand, haha!
Before this trip I'd never been to a North Carolina beach or anywhere near Wilmington. It's a cute little beach town and surprisingly enough has an entire UNC campus about 10 miles from the beach. We didn't get to explore because we went straight to the beach but when we go back we'll be sure to sightsee a little more. I did notice quite a few spots with Spanish moss (insert heart eyes here!) that I know would photograph beautifully so I'll be looking to take some photos when we go back too!
I didn't take too many photos on this trip because we were in the water for the majority of daylight but I did jump out to snap a few. Don't be fooled by my dad's "Virginia Beach" shirt, we are in fact at Carolina Beach :) Speaking of my dad, since this weekend was Father's Day I want to wish him a Happy Father's Day! The holiday kind of sprung up on my this year and I didn't get a chance to get him a gift but spending time with us is more important to him anyway. So, on Sunday we did our usual ordering of pizza and pop and just relaxed at home.
Enjoy a few snaps for our short trip and stay tuned in to the blog this week! I have some posts that I think will be beneficial to not only photographers but to brides as well!
