Photo and Hour- Drive to the Beach

I decided to do another photo an hour on the day we drove to the beach. Not really sure why I choose to do photo and hours on road trip days, maybe because these photos don’t really seem to fit into a post of their own, but I still want to share them.. Anyway!

7:00 AM
 On the road, driving into the sunrise!

8:00 AM
 A quick stop at W House for some breakfast. It’s becoming a fun tradition to stop for breakfast at a Waffle House on a road trip, in a town we’ve never been to.

9:00 AM
 Bored in the car, and seeing this truck made me remember how good English Muffins are and gave me a serious craving. A craving that I could not satisfy, so I took a picture instead. Steven said “What are you doing?? Don’t take a picture of that truck!! o_0” 

10:00 AM
Stopped at a Sheetz for fuel.  I was a little too excited about seeing this screme egg..

11:00 AM
 The second half of the journey to the beach take us through lots and lots of farmland. 

12:00 PM
 BEACH!  By the time we get to the big bridge I am about to fly out of my seat from excitement. I think I may have screamed when I first sighted the water. Probably a good thing I wasn’t the driver.

1:00 PM
Since our check in wasn’t until 3, we drove straight to the beach access and ran to the ocean. It was a really fun thing to just drive straight to the beach, not stopping at our hotel first.

2:00 PM
Picked up a few groceries and checked out a couple shops, including this bookstore that sold all kinds of Outer Banks history books that I wanted to buy.

3:00 PM
Checked in to our Sand Dollar motel! The first time we stayed here we could barely afford the cheapest tiny cramped room with a tiny bed. This time we finally moved to the top, and stayed in the king suite, which included a little kitchen, a couch and a table! We felt like kings.

4:00 PM
Resting on the bed and watching HGTV. It’s probably a good thing we don’t have cable at home. That stuff is addictive.

5:00 PM Consisted of more HGTV and eating cereal.

6:00 PM
Back to the beach for an evening walk

7:00 and 8:00 PM

Still walking on the beach and then heading back to our room for more HGTV!

We had such a fun trip and I can’t wait to share all my photos!

  1. Really beautiful post ! I love the beach too:)
    I would love to know your opinion on my new post on consumerism… I am thinking about making some kind of blogger group with a own button saying something like « conscious blogger ». What do you think about this? Would you like to be part of it?
    Thanks a lot for your last comment : )

  2. Omg this is awesome and totally familiar. I love to stop for breakfast in new towns, take pictures of random trucks and watch tv with cereal and junk food. I could feel the excitement upon arriving at he beach, that sunset is perfection.

  3. I love taking a trip to the beach! Although, I'm glad the beach is only two hours away from us. you guys drove a long, long way! Hope you had a lovely trip!

  4. Oo I love the idea of a photo an hour while driving, I might have to try doing that myself the next time we head somewhere. I dread to think how far we were away from the sea, I feel so landlocked in Michigan, it's so weird when you basically grow up on an island, a big island, but an island all the same. We don't have cable either, so we always end up watching loads of random TV shows while we're away too.

  5. I love this fun idea of a picture an hour! This looks like such a fun trip! I do love HGTV too! LOL! I think my favorite photo is that last one where the light of the setting sun is dancing on the water and scenery


  6. Sarah I love this idea of a pic an hour while driving, I love these post's. They are so much fun and interesting. Would love to see more of these.

  7. The beach look sooooo beautiful! Also, I am totally craving waffles now ha!

  9. Beautiful pictures, feel like I'm travelling with you! Oh and those snacks…;))

  10. Thank you! And no problem, I was happy to comment! I think that sounds like a good idea 🙂

  11. Thanks it was lovely! Four hours isn't too bad, but anything longer and I start to loose my mind..

  12. At least you're surrounded by plenty of lakes up there though! I never really thought of Britain as an island, but I suppose it is!

  13. Thanks! It was a good distraction from the drive!

  14. Thank you, and go get yourself some waffles, haha!

  15. What fun! What is that saying about enjoying the journey? Anyway, looks like you know exactly how to do that. That is a spacious hotel room!
