Shore Is Beautiful – Kath Eats Real Food


Here is part II of our spring break trip to Bald Head Island. 

Birch and I went to the beach alone together where we found hundreds of birds! We sat in the sand, side by side, and I said “sure is beautiful” and he said “sure is beautiful” back about 5 minutes later. There is nothing like the shore. 

Shore Is Beautiful! 

Grammie + Pea

Grammie and Pea arrived on Monday, so we enjoyed the second half of our trip with them. Having a kid-to-adult ratio of 4:1 was quite nice!

Grammie’s Birthday Dinner

We celebrated Grammie’s birthday (a few weeks late) with a sprinkle striped cake and gifts!

And before cake we had BBQ chicken, roasted asparagus, rosemary potatoes, and rolls. 

And lots of beach time! 

Tide Pools

The tide pools at the point were on point (ha!) this time!! So many shallow ones to hop in. 

Spa and Golf

Thomas and I escaped for some individual activities. He played golf twice, and I went to the Island Retreat Spa!

I got a massage with cupping for the first time and was quite shocked by the marks it left on my back. It’s supposedly very good for muscles, and it hurt a little but not a lot. They are slowly fading away. Looks like I got stung by a giant squid!

I also went to the Club fitness room twice for a Peloton ride! Felt so much like home. Interestly, I crushed my personal record by almost 40 points. So either this bike or mine is totally off calibration.

Island Adventures

We went to see Old Baldy and paid a visit to the “pirate store” which was filled with pirate things for Captain Sparrow!!

Fishing on the Dock

Lots of Easter Egg Hunts!

Watercolors with Grammie

Beach Time Everyday!

Quote from Birch “I don’t like the ocean, but I love the beach!”

Meals

Carnitas over salad

Happy hour cheese

Wine + Salad Course 

One of the best roses from Winc

Pizza course followed 

Lunch at Jailhouse

We tried the new restaurant, Jailhouse Provisions. It’s part coffee shop and part casual eatery open for lunch and at the bottom of the week. 

The Edward Teach IPA was excellent in the sunshine. 

Thomas and I shared the flounder platter with fries and a salad. 

Dinner at Horizons

These tuna nachos were one of the highlights of my week! 

I also had this seafood chowder and shared spring rolls with Thomas. 

And for dessert – coconut cream pie!!!!! It was so fluffy good. 

Date Night at the Shoals

We got all dressed up for once! 

We started the meal with this great crab queso!! Our server broke the chips into the hot crabby cheese underneath. We devoured it!

We shared a flounder cooked Thai-style with banana leaves and rice and a really good mango with croutons and a vanilla bean vinaigrette!!!! Must recreate it was soooo good. 

And for dessert – nutella mousse!

Perfecting ending to a relaxing week!
