Day #8

We moved to our next destination. We are staying here for 3 nights. I fell in love with the North Carolina Aquarium at Roanoke Island last year. They also have two other aquariums they own. So we planned to visit them this year. Pine Knoll Shores is the first one our way to Myrtle Beach. There is also a fort here for Jeremiah to visit and learn about. Mom might have been here before but Jeremiah and I have not so it's always nice to see a new area. The weather was gorgeous this morning for our trip here. It was almost a 4 hour drive but it went without any issues.

We arrived and ate a delicious meal at a nearby restaurant. The area isn't as touristy as Outer Banks or Myrtle Beach but it's nice. Our hotel is across the road from the ocean but we can still see it from our room window. We did notice a few spots of flooding but nothing major. We walked across the road and found a nice place for us to walk out to the beach. The waves were finally settled down. So we could put our feet in the waves...
It was cold at first touch but felt fantastic. Jeremiah had a playing around in it. It's a lot of work for him but so worth it. We also got to see several boats including a shrimp boat...
Also the pelicans were busy eating away. Mom just LOVES watching Pelicans.

  1. Thank goodness the weather has cleared up for you! Paddling in the sea looks so much fun and must be quite liberating for Jeremiah, even if it is hard work. Look forward to hearing about your trip to the aquarium. :)

  4. The weather looks so much better and it sounds like you have an interesting visit planned. Paddling is as good for the soul as it is for the feet!

  5. How fun! We went to Myrtle Beach once while visiting my sister in SC. The water was so much warmer than it is on the west coast. Love it there! I wish we had seen pelicans - very cool! It sounds like a great day at the beach!
