2014 Anniversary: Ocean Isle Beach Day 3

Yet another beautiful morning at the beach.  There were rain showers here and there, but thankfully we were able to dodge them as they stayed mostly inland from us.

This loop took us east first, to connect some roads that took us out to some viewpoints, and then back west to Sunset Beach before returning.

Generally low traffic on these roads, although Beach Drive can be busy.

Sunset Inn, one place we considered but was booked on our dates.  I’m sure it’s nice but I’m glad we ended up at The Winds.

More afternoon time at the beach.   What a wonderful time just being able to spend time together on the beach and to get some pool time.

Our last night out … no trip is complete without stuffing yourself silly on Calabash Style seafood.  We decided on Dockside (Calabash NC of course!) and it did not disappoint.  No wait and we even got a table next to the windows.

I’d show you the huge plate of seafood I ordered but – sorry it’s gone!  Best fried plate of seafood I’d had anywhere.  I ordered the Deluxe Platter – Huge scallops and shrimp, oysters, fish and deviled crab.  When you’re in the area you may prefer one of the all you can eat joints, but I dare you to try and eat all that is served here.  There’s a reason plenty of people are leaving with boxes!
