Hatteras through the clouds

After spending a short weekend on Hatteras Island, I cannot help but believe it still shines regardless of the weather. It rained almost every second we were there, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying ourselves thoroughly. For me, anytime at the beach is good time.

“Look at that sea, girls–all silver and shadow and vision of things not seen. We couldn’t enjoy its loveliness any more if we had millions of dollars and ropes of diamonds.” – L.M. Montgomery

My Hatteras highlights:

A long, productive road trip//Staying up until 5 a.m. talking and laughing with Kelsey in a big, soft bed//Waking up to the sound of rain and realizing that there was nothing I had to do //Talking wedding plans with Alex and Kels// A refreshing swim in the rain//Kels’ wedding shower and meeting all of Alex’s Hatteras folk//Playing in the ocean//Crab cakes, collard greens, and sweet potato fries//The Olympics//Knowing I’ll be back someday soon. . .
