I’m starting to get all Exci for this year’s trip to Oak Island, NC. It’s so dern purty there. When we first started going there wasn’t even a grocery store on the island, just a few little stores and a sweet run-down carnival. And now it is booming, as they say in France! It’s crazy to watch a place evolve, year by year, as more and more people hear of its awesomeness.
My family has gone every year since I was eight, as part of a huge family reunion with my Mom’s side of the family, involving something silly like 40-50 people. The trip always involves talent shows, delicious buffets, Doritoes, volleyball, laying out, laying around, wonderful conversation with relatives and more recently – Beer. I can’t wait!
