The cottage we stayed in wasn't very fancy but was fine for what we needed. We also couldn't complain considering the price we were paying for a place right on the beach. My only complaint would be the non existent pressure in the shower. I thought I would be in there for an hour trying to wash the shampoo out of my hair.
On Friday night we were tired and just got a take out pizza and had a picnic on the bed while watching t.v. It was sweet and romantic. I told him that we would look back fondly on that moment in the future when we (hopefully) have more money and can travel in style about the night we had a pizza picnic on the bed in our motel room at the beach.
Saturday night we went to a cute restaurant on the water where we were able to watch the sunset while eating.
On Sunday we got up early (to my protest), went for a walk on the beach and made a stop at the Avon pier to check it out before heading out of town. We stopped a few times to shop and didn't get home until the late afternoon. My bed has never felt more comfortable than it did last night.
We had a really nice, relaxing weekend away. It's something that I definitely want us to try to do more often. It doesn't have to be fancy and exciting but I think it's a must for the health of our marriage to break out of our day to day routine.
On to the pictures!
The famous Cape Hatteras lighthouse
The motel/cottage we stayed in. We had a screened in porch which was great for reading and watching the ocean.
