N.C. Honeymoon

I have not talked about my honeymoon. Over the next few weeks I will share some of my honeymoon pictures with you. Since my husband does not fly, we had to go somewhere that we could drive to. We went to Emerald Isle, North Carolina. It took us 11 hours to drive there.

The drive was good even through the all the rain in the hills of West Virginia. We did get a little lost on the way and had to stop a hardware store to ask for directions. Note to self.. always double check Mapquest and Yahoo Maps! with an AAA trip ticket when taking a road trip. Luckily the store clerks were helpful and had the Internet to get us back on the right track.

It was not a bad drive, it gave the hubby and I time to recap about the wedding and just spend time talking. I took a couple of cat naps along the way, when I was suppose to be navigating. We took our time getting there and stopped to see some sites on the way. I started to get cranky towards the end of the drive since I was sleepy and just wanted to go to bed.

I must say that this was a very budget friendly honeymoon. We stayed in a condo on the beach and brought some amenities from home including some food and lots of personal items. The condo had a deck with a swing on it and a good view of the beach. It was very relaxing, which we needed after the wedding. The town seemed to shut down around 11:00 pm...even the gas station. I am use to everything being 24 hours where I live. It was fine with us that everything closed early since we spent alot of time on the beach and sitting on our deck.

We definitely enjoyed our stay there and are planning on going back some day, maybe even for our 1st anniversary.
