on living near the beach.

since moving to wilmington permanently nearly one month ago, i've been dreaming of heading to the beach, bundled up, with a warm drink to wrap my hands around. actually, i've been dreaming of it much longer than only one month, but finally, two days ago, it actually happened. 

we drove up, snagged a [hopefully legal] parking spot, & made our way out onto the cool, drafty sand. true, we only remained long enough to snap a couple photos & remark on the peaceful nature of the place, but it seemed to be an indication of what we have to look forward to in the coming months - the summer months. what will it be like to trek to the beach any day of the week? to lie out on the sand with a good book on a slow saturday morning?

that is something i cannot wait to find out.

until those warmer days, i guess we'll be occupying ourselves with tasks such as acquiring a parking pass [and continuing to get our house together]. but, it's something to look forward to, for sure.

I love love going to the beach all bundled up! Actually, I went to the beach this weekend down in Chatham, MA. It was packed with people and it was quite cold but very enjoyable!!
Ahhh! I love the beach!! That's why I'm relocating there for 5 months or so at the first of the year. Who knows? If I fall in love with beach life, I may just stay. :)
So glad you got to visit the shore, even for just a short time. Summer will be here before we know it! #scary

Looks gorgeous... the water is so blue! I'm sure you'll have a great time when the weather warms up! I love living near the beach :)

You are going to LOVE that beach in the warmer months! Enjoy it while it's desolate, too, though. We have a family beach house on Lake Michigan and it's pretty neat to see it off season. It's hauntingly gorgeous.

We did something similar last week... minus a warm drink in hand though. That sounds like a wonderful way to visit the beach. (:

We don't go to the beaches in FL very often in the summer, because it's almost too humid and hot to enjoy them. I love them this time of year though.
Oh my gosh, I would love to live by the beach {even if it included bundling up}. Can't wait to see your beach photos when it warms up!
