Topsail Island NC after the beach Lunch

Today was a beautiful day on Topsail Island, NC.  I have actually gone to the beach (not one we anchor up on when we are out on the boat) for the last three weekends.  My friend Allison came to visit a few weeks ago and we went every day she was here.  A couple days we just took a long walk but a couple days we took our chairs and sat right on the surf where the waves were breaking.p

The last two weekends S and I have gone to the beach on Sunday for a couple hours.  

Just sitting there on the beach, eyes closed, waves rolling on the shore, and the sun wrapping around my body like a warm blanket lulled me into a trance like state.  S found a piece of a sand dollar and I thought how sad, it was probably so beautiful when it wasn't broken.  As I held it in my hand and studied it I realized it was beautiful just the way it was.  I kept it and I am going to add it to my collection.  It just goes to show you everything is beautiful in its own way.  

We saw a little crab on the shore line and he would run away when the waves would roll in.

I just love the water at Topsail, it is so clear and even standing in knee deep water you can see the bottom.

I did play around with some yoga on the beach when I went with Allison and when I was sitting on the beach today I realized I want to offer a class on the beach.

The beach always make me feel so relaxed yet so energized.  It is a wonderful feeling.

Well after we leave the beach we like to stop and get something to eat on the island.  We were going to Hot Diggity Dogz (no I was not eating hotdogs) but last weekend S and I decided we would never go back there.  We were sitting at a table outside and there was a family sitting next to us at another table when a group walked up to the window to place an order.  We heard the owner start yelling at them about brownies and how he doesn't serve brownies and they need to leave.  He went on and on about it.  We (along with the family sitting at the other table) were trying to figure out if he knew them and was just making a joke but we soon got our answer when he walked out and started ranting about it again.  He was on and on about how he paid good money to have his menu signs made and there were no brownies listed and if anyone else asked for a brownie he would basically go off on them as well.  We all just looked at each other because he put us in a very uncomfortable position.  S and I didn't even turn around to look at him or acknowledge him.  What a jerk! So as a result we will never be going back there and I'm pretty sure the other group that was sitting out there won't be going either.  So if anyone is reading this that is planning on visiting Topsail Island NC or lives there and is looking for a place to get something to eat stay away from Hot Diggity Dogz.  After we left the beach today we were trying to figure out where we wanted to eat and we had seen Beach Bunny and many times said we wanted to try it so we did today.

I must say we were very pleased.  Nice atmosphere, clean, good food and great service.  I would highly recommend.  They have burgers, subs, pizza, and appetizers.  Some similar food the the NY Deli on the island but to me much better. S and I really don't care for the NY Deli it always seems a little dirty and the people that work there aren't overly friendly.  

So my yoga teacher training is coming along well.  I just need to teach a class with my instructor observing me.  I have actually taught a couple classes and really enjoyed it.  Now I think I may wait until I sub again and then invite my instructor to that class to observe.  The last time S and I went on the boat we anchored up on an island and I played around with some yoga poses.

I actually played around in the water too.
All in all it has been a pretty great summer so far.  I hope you enjoy. 
Much Love.......
