Hello from the road on the way up to D.C.! Matt and I really enjoyed the rest of our time in Bald Head Island for his birthday weekend. We were so sad to leave on the ferry this morning!
We capped off Matt’s birthday yesterday with burgers for dinner :)
It was as delicious as it looks. It’s all about balance, friends.
The birthday boy with his burger:
Wisdom teeth surgery and enormous burgers don’t really go that well together, so he ended up rocking the fork a bit, haha. Still delicious, though :) Plus a beautiful view!
After dinner, we hopped in our awesome golf cart and headed down to the beach! Golf carts are way more fun than cars.
We hung out on the beach for an hour or so to enjoy the sunset. I absolutely love the beach in the evening. So peaceful to sit and watch the waves.
This morning, we visited the beach one last time before heading out in the form of a run!
We ran almost 5 miles (with a little walking — it was SO humid) total. Minus the hot weather, Bald Head Island is perfect for running — very flat!
Around mile 3, we took an offshoot to the beach to cool off :)
Matt ran straight for the water.
I quickly followed suit. I ditched my camera, shirt, socks, shoes, and Garmin watch — and went in myself!
I wish I could take a beach detour during all my runs! Diving headfirst into cool water when that hot and sweaty was the most amazing thing ever.
After enjoying the water for awhile, we got suited back up and continued our run — 2 more miles to get back to our B&B!
Speaking of our B&B, now that we’ve left, I want to give them a little shout out. We stayed at the Marsh Harbour Inn and it was absolutely wonderful!
It’s situated right in the main marina with gorgeous views from all the balconies.
The place itself was charming, too! I loved our room — the second one up on the left.
Highly recommended if you guys ever come here! Their staff were super nice, too. :)
Time to continue the drive to D.C. We’ll miss you, Bald Head Island!
Until next time…
Catch you guys later from D.C. :)
