While every single morning at the beach began with a workout of some type (running/biking; usually both)
every single night at the beach ended with dessert – as it should, right?!
Considering the fact that our house was within 1/2 mile (walking distance) to the nearest ice cream shop, Fat Boyz, this should be no surprise. More so, there was a place that I couldn’t resist. American Pie, a little shop in Nags Head (all home-made!) made a “no sugar added vanilla” which tasted like Pillsbury icing from the can that I couldn’t resist.
Ezekiel cinnamon raisin sprouted english muffins with a Laughing Cow cheese wedge mixed with Splenda smeared on top . It was like cream cheese frosting. After the workout, it was About Time for a protein shake with spinach blended in. I don’t have any pictures, because I think the blog world has seen quite enough green drinks.
Beach time was next on the agenda.
I made it there by about 11 (if not earlier) every morning, breaking around 1 or 1:30pm for lunch.
This was a typical plate of mid-day eats consisting of a turkey sammie with lettuce, tomato, hummus, and onion on Nature’s Own whole grain bread.
On the side I had some fresh seasonal fruit, because at the beach, nothing tastes better! Strawberries and cantaloupe were on the menu this particular day. Watermelon was another favorite!
The rest of the afternoon was spent basking in the sun, typically, causing me to turn into one big freckle…a happy one, though.
After showering, I usually hung out with the family and helped get dinner ready…when we ate in, it was mostly things like this.
No, that’s not baby food…that would be my Amy’s Organic low-fat split pea soup and a huge monstrous salad with homemade honey mustard dressing (mustard +S & water to thin). Carbage came later in the form of hummus toast 🙂
One night after dinner, we hit up the sand dunes for a spectacular view of the sunset.
Could you imagine gliding in the air off of a sand dune with a view like this one?
…yeah, it’s that gorgeous.
Morgy & I thoroughly enjoyed the sand between our toes after trekking up-hill to get to the top of the dunes.
Momma & Poppa FF got a nice little shot together with the moon in the background.
