So, I'm finally down to my last post of Oak Island beach in North Carolina. School starts tomorrow for my two youngest daughters and I thought it was fitting to post our last night of beach vacation today. I only have one post after this but this night of photos gave me the same feeling I have today. It is a feeling of closure, or that feeling of getting back to the security of your life's normal routine. We had a wonderful night but there was this peace in my heart knowing that I was almost going to be home.
Just like I'm excited to get back on my work schedule this week, I am also excited to start blogging different ideas and thoughts that I have been holding back on because of this vacation series. I love how my friend Glyn Dewis blogged his ten day holiday on one page and it has taken me several weeks to get through 7 days. Clearly, I tend to be rather chatty and winded. If you have been here thanks for coming by and enjoying our vacation memories with us.
On this evening we walked on the shore line and played in the foamy splash of the waters. We walked with Millie and our kids. As it became dark, my lens fogged over with humid moisture from the ocean and I love the effect. It was peaceful and happy. Enjoy!

Sheesh, what's up with everyone taking pictures of me?
Dads and shop talk...
Manda is never too busy to return your text...
PS Sisters are a wonderful thing!
This is one of two pictures I have of my long time friend,
Mary. I wish I had more pictures of her but she was in a
no-shoot zone. I love this picture of her, Max, and Millie.
Thank you to my friends, the McManus family for inspiring us to fly across the country for a week in a place none of us had ever been. Oak Island will be a part of us forever.
