Beach Bliss on the NC Coast

Beach path

Beach path at Figure 8 Island

Since I was just a few months old, I’ve been visiting Figure 8 Island, a small island near Wrightsville Beach and Wilmington on the North Carolina coast. Even though there are many vacation spots I would love to visit (the Outer Banks!), I could happily spend the entire summer at our family home on the Intracoastal Waterway. We enjoyed mostly sunshine during our trip last week, giving us lots of time for swimming and sand castle building. As another front of Seattle-esque weather returns to Charlotte, I’m dreaming of the white sand beach and ocean waves.
