Then we headed to the ocean. The beach was very crowded but that was to be expected. And also I kind of liked seeing all the people and knowing they are enjoying the last bit of summer instead of wishing for fall already. We swam in the ocean and the water was so nice and blue. It is pretty warm to. Everyone was just out enjoying themselves. I think a lot of people go to the beach and stay all day. They bring coolers, chairs, a canopy, etc, I guess this is the way to do it if you have children. We only stayed for 2 hours but it was so much fun. Also Wrightsville Beach is suppose to be the location of the movie The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks (according to the book not the movie.)
On the way home, I really wanted to stop in Kilwin’s Ice Cream shop in Wilmington NC. It is so good. They have awesome ice cream and chocolate goodies. We stopped and Clark’s mom got to experience some of the best ice cream in NC! I got chocolate chip cookies dough in a waffle cone, Clark got Georgia Peach in a cup, and Clark’s mom got Georgia Peach in a waffle cone. Then we headed home!
We really did have a great time and I was glad that we got to show off the NC coast to a Washtingtonian. I am also really glad that we got one last beach trip in before the summer ended.
