During our summers at the beach, our daily schedule goes something like this:
6:30 a.m. Wake up. Watch the sunrise. Drink coffee.
7 a.m. Hour walk on the beach. Look for seaglass/try to burn calories/soak up ocean air (this is what I miss the most all year long - even walking on the beach in Charleston is just not the same).
8:30 a.m. Breakfast. Maybe eggs and grits, maybe a raspberry lime smoothie, or maybe blueberry pancakes.
9 - 11 a.m. Read outside, let Isabel entertain us, ride bikes around Pond Island, etc.
Noon. Start thinking about lunch. Possibly go to Manteo to walk around and eat.
2 p.m. Beach. Read, play in waves, sleep, play in waves.
4:30 p.m. Watermelon margaritas and guacamole. Usually followed by naps.
6 p.m. Start making incredible seafood, local veggie-filled dinner with my mom.
7:30 p.m. Sit down to dinner with a view of the water and pre-sunset sky.
8:30 p.m. Walk on the beach, ride bikes, or watch the sunset from our dock.
11 p.m. Sandy beds, heavy eyelids, amazing sleep.
I'm pretty sure I could live this life forever.
