Winter Beach

Steve and I spent last weekend in Corolla, NC, which is on the Outer Banks. This time of year the normally busy beach town is empty, which meant Steve and I had the beach all to ourselves. We walked for miles, collected shells, and enjoyed the beautiful weather. It was incredibly relaxing, which was the perfect end to my winter break.




We visited the Corolla lighthouse and grounds on Sunday.






I am happiest when I'm at the beach, regardless of the season.

I did a little knitting, but mostly we soaked up the salt air.

I thought my first week back at school would be brutal, but since I was so rested and relaxed, I actually enjoyed getting back to work. Hope your January is off to as good a start as mine is.



  1. I am not Beachy, but your pictures are lovely to look at.

    I finished my first hat! It is a hipster slouchy beanie of worsted for one of the boys. So traumatic that I am still waiting to cast on the next one for the other son. LOL.

    (It's a concentration issue. Like math, knitting requires Exactness, which is NOT my Strong Suit.)

  2. I am the happiest when I am at the beach too! I need to get over there soon. Hugs,

  3. I miss the ocean. What can I say? Lakes just aren't the same! Looks like a great weekend.

  4. Beautiful photos! I love the beach in the winter! ~Terri

  5. I enjoy the beach so much in the winter. Have done it a few times in Rehobeth Delaware, but not for a long time now!
