16th Anniversary Trip to Sunset Beach

We were to begin the trip by attending my Pa's sister's funeral in Goldsboro, but we didn't make it because Kylie woke up with 103 temp and sore throat. I just couldn't leave town not knowing if she had strep so we made a trip to the doc. and thankfully she did not have strep and was better that afternoon. We left them in Goldsboro and stopped to eat dinner at a neat little place in downtown Wilmington. It was delicious. The rest of our time together was spent in Ocean Isle/Sunset Beach.
this time we stayed in Ocean Isle which is just one beach over from Sunset Beach.  We loved our motel.

we had the indoor and outdoor pools all to ourselves several times!

16 years

the first day at the beach we got sand-blasted!  it was so windy!  the second day was gorgeous!

Sunset Beach pier

this was a massive ship that is taken by zooming in all the way with the camera.  not sure what it was or where it was going, but it was impressive!

anniversary lunch---eating at a nice Italian restaurant that had some of the best bread ever!

eating at a Jamaican was sooooooooo good!  we could have drank the "jerk" sauce with a straw.  i was expecting spicy, but it was sweet! yummy!

cosmic bowling

i literally had the worst 2 games of bowling in my life.  i would have been better off playing with 6 year olds or something.  i probably still would have lost.  it was pure embarrassing!

the Giggling Mackeral restaurant


the course was so pretty!

he only beat me by one stroke, but that's cause he cheated! ;-)

reminded me of Jungle Land that used to be in Atlantic Beach

  1. You guys are too sweet! :) I particularly liked the picture of your anniversary dinner where Gary has a full plate of food and Melissa doesn't have any. I know, I know you're sharing, but it still made me laugh.I know leave it to me to notice the food. Jamaican Jerk is so yummy! :)

  2. Love all the pictures! And I love that Ms. Competitive pointed out who won in golf and then gave the reason why it wasn't you. ;)
