Carolina Beach

August 23, 2015

The ocean lies a mere two hours away from where I attend university, and as it's such an easy drive myself and a few friends make the trip at least once every fall semester. This year we went a few weeks earlier than usual as we wanted to finally go to Britt's Donuts, a Carolina Beach staple, and they close after Labor Day. We had stayed out late the night before so we postponed our departure until late morning where, after a quick breakfast stop at Dunkin Donuts, we were on our way to the Big A.

The weather was perfect for a beach day; the water the warm with few clouds and the sun burned hot but not overwhelmingly so - shocking for NC in August. It was the most relaxed day I've had in a long, long time. We stayed out on the sand until evening, reading, sleeping, occasionally swimming, with not a care for the time or the responsibilities waiting for us at home. Having such a carefree Sunday was the perfect day to end the weekend before the first full week of classes.
