Wrightsville Beach, NC

Wrightsville Beach

The view from our balcony at the Holiday Inn Resort, overlooking the intracoastal waterway that separates Wrightsville Beach from Wilmington, NC.

This was the first time we had been to the beach since leaving Florida 5 years ago. We all got toasty golden brown, we just couldn’t get enough of the beach and swimming pools. A day of pounding waves made for a very sound and restful sleep, my body still feeling the smashing effects of water. The large waves and cold ocean water was reminiscent of my childhood when we would make the customary summer trips to Jones Beach on Long Island.

We also spent a day of sightseeing in Wilmington, seeing where they had filmed many movies and TV shows, like One Tree Hill. The area is called Cape Fear, legend has it that there are parts of the downtown that are haunted, but that’s another tour.

Afternoon delight, cocktails and moonlit nights
That dreamy look in your eye, give me a tropical contact high
