one of my purchases at vanity...LOVE that store (the other purchase is a very fun, very pretty cocktail ring...i've wanted to start wearing them so i thought i'd give it a try:).
then, we headed out for breakfast (K & W...joel had never been to breakfast at K & W at the beach. i mean, until you have the lady yell at you about whether or not you want eggs, pancakes, or waffles you really haven't had a true beach breakfast experience ;). we were super stuffed after a yummy (and entertaining) breakfast and decided to take a drive with the windows down, enjoying the breeze and the ocean air. we drove all the way to the end of ocean drive at cherry grove and the day was absolutely gorgeous!
after driving around for a bit, we headed to calabash to the callahan's nautical gift shop to purchase some fudge...souvenirs for family. my family always takes a trip to the beach every year and we always drive to calabash to eat fish and then go to callahan's and almost always end up purchasing some of their homemade fudge. so, i thought it would be fun to bring everyone some fudge home as a little surprise.
the boats and docks at calabash (graysons and burgesses: this is right beside our beloved docksider :)
after our little trip out to calabash, we decided to head over to broadway at the beach to ripley's aquarium. unfortunately, all we did was drive by because the line was crazy just for tickets and it was already 2 pm. :( so, we will have to visit it some other time. at that point, we decided to grab lunch and then head home since we had so much to do to get ready for the next day (sunday). we had lunch at cheeseburger in paradise...
LOVE these chairs...seriously could sit in them forever and just enjoy the day...
we both agreed that we had the best time (as you can see from the pic of joel :) and that we should definitely take more spontaneous little road trip adventures!
