Weekend Review 5/31- 6/2

This weekend we headed up to Topsail Island to visit some friends at their beach house. We spent an relaxing Saturday enjoying the quiet beach watching the waves roll in. There were a few brave souls swimming. But it is not warm enough for me yet!

For dinner Saturday night, we headed to Daddy Mac's a local oceanfront seafood restaurant. 

We split the homemade crab dip for an appetizer which was the perfect blend of creaminess and crab. I had one of their specialty drinks called the Captain Loco. It was a mix of rum and bananas all topped with raspberry puree. It hit the spot after a long day in the sun. For dinner I had a house salad and bowl of lobster bisque. I am normally one to order soup but after trying this seafood based dish I am going to have to do this more often!!  Joe had the crab cakes which were also amazing!

Sunday we woke up early in time to go on a short walk on the beach before heading back home.

 Sundays are always the catch-up day. So we spent most of it tending the garden, running errands and getting ready for another work week! I was able to squeeze in a Pure Barre class and a nice run  before dinner. For dinner, we hung out around the grill cooking local veggies and hamburgers which is the perfect way to end the weekend!

Best Wishes,
