A day at the beach

Matt and Shirley, on Sophia Jeanne, rented a beach house on the west end of Oak Island this week. Their daughter came down from Maryland with her 2 girls. Needless to say, Matt and Shirley were having a great time. They gave us an open invitation to come to the beach while they were there and use one of their vehicles to get there (how cool of them is that!). We finally put a plan together for today. It was windy and the beach was rough so we went down another couple miles to the very west end of Oak Island to Lockwoods Folley Inlet, and camped out on the backside of Oak Island. It was a great area to enjoy the water, nice and calm, minimal current, and lots of sand. We have been suffering through a heat wave for the last couple of weeks, with temps way above normal, so the water was a welcome relief. We camped out at the red arrow:

It is only 17 miles from our marina and is very convenient.

After wallowing awhile, we went back to the beach house and had a pig out, grilling burgers, dogs, sausage, and crab stuffed jalapeno poppers! It was really fun to hang out with them and get to know their family better. It made us miss ours even more! We will come back to this spot when we can borrow a car, for sure.
