beauty at the beach: Nags Head, NC 2011

I tend to take a lot of nature photos, which is mostly what my vacation pictures are.  hope you enjoy.

the view from my room!

the house was 3 levels, with an elevator, a pool, hot tub, 10 bedrooms, plenty of bathrooms and a HUGE living area on the 3rd floor where the kitchen, dining room and tv were located. each floor had a deck. It was so spacious and i was lucky to be able to have a room with an ocean view. each night i left my door open and fell asleep with the sounds of waves crashing.

what an amazing vacation and i want to thank my friends Lesley and Tom for inviting me along. there is something about the beach that is soothing to the soul and comforting to the heart. As with any vacation, it is sad to see it come to an end. but there's always next year.

  3. I've been living on the west coast now most of my life, but we used to go to Nags Head almost every year when I was a child. It's changed a bit, as there were very deep beaches and motel after motel in the 70's. Lots of children playing in pools and laughter and screams. Even a small amusement park with rides... Actually happy to see it is quieter now, but I wouldn't trade those memories for anything.

    Thanks for sharing your vacation photos!
