INTERROGATION - You asked, now I'm answering (Part 1)

Last week, I invited you all to ask me questions {and, don't worry, you still can...just visit the blog post & leave a question in the comments section} and I figure that today would be a good day for me to go ahead & start answering them one by one!

If you are anything like me, then you're a bit on the nosey side and are curious about people. When I meet someone new I swear I feel like I'm playing "20 Questions" with them because I want to know ALL about them! is the first question to be answered in this 'series'...

We share a love for the beach. Robert, our friends and I can spend hours and hours out there snacking, playing and listening to music. Then we always meet out for a nice dinner. What's your perfect day out there?

I know that if Jen & I were to ever meet in real life we would become friends so easily and I'm certain that our first meet up would take place either at the beach or somewhere darn close to it, don't you think? She's exactly right in saying that she & I share a love for the beach {can't you tell from the awesome blog layout that Danielle made for me?!}.

To answer Jen's question:

Our family LVES the beach. If you want to get technical about it, well, we live at the beach {in a sense}. We're actually within short distances from a few beaches in our area - we live in Virginia Beach, VA - but...and this is the honest truth...very rarely do we go to our local beaches. Nope. Instead, we pack up the truck and take the back roads to the North Carolina border and head south to Hatteras Island. We don't even bother with the beaches in Nags Head, Kitty Hawk or Kill Devil Hills in the Outer Banks {to us it's too similar to being at home}. When we get to our destination - Buxton, Frisco, Hatteras or Ocracoke Island - we unload the truck and get ourselves ready for a long day of fun in the sun!

A perfect day on the beach for us is no beach restrictions, low tide, warm {but not too hot} weather & a slight overcast. If the waves are chest high and glassy, then that's a bonus because the hubs loves to be in the water. However, he's more interested in whether or not the flounder are biting {if we happen to be on the sound side rather than the ocean side}. We set up a canopy for shade, get the beach chairs out, take the cooler off the truck {yes, we're spoiled because in North Carolina you can drive onto certain beaches}, get the kids & ourselves covered in sunscreen and then we're off. Adam's usually headed to the water with a fishing pole. Our son is skipping through the waves and my daughter & I get a big bucket and begin combing the beach for seashells.

We are on the beach all day long. Seriously. We grill on the beach - we've been out on the beach so long before that we've managed to have breakfast, lunch & dinner with our feet in the sand! We nap at the beach. We relax at the beach.

We honestly & truly love escaping to the beaches of Hatteras Island, NC and we stay for weekends at a time. We camp {in tents} at one of the NPS campgrounds and, all weekend long, we are at the beach & in the water - whether we're digging for clams and searching the grass beds for scallops on the sound side or looking for a perfect Scotch Bonnet shell on the ocean side. To us, life couldn't be more perfect than when we're at the beach!

I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little bit more about me. Tomorrow, I'll answer the next question on the list. In the meantime, don't be shy...ask away!

I am originally from North Carolina and love its beaches! I hope to move to the Wrightsville Beach area one of these days.
