A Mini Vacation!!

Has anyone ever been to Top Sail Island? It's a beautiful little island off the coast of North Carolina. Not really sure exactly where it is, but I do know that it's gorgeous.

My aunt (Mom's sister) and uncle bought a home about 20 years ago there to vacation during the summers. It's a gorgeous home, right on the bay. Back in the 80's it was two condominiums, which they've since converted, renovated, gutted out into one big house. Since my uncle retired a few years ago, they've been staying there more permanently. They've invited a bunch of relatives down for labor day weekend and everyone they've invited decided to go!! Yay!!

I'm really excited because not only is it my parent's anniversary, but also my cousin's anniversary (they share they same wedding anniversary). So huge party will be thrown--and many boat rides. I'm excited and babbling.

I'll let you know how it goes!!!


  • Sounds like so much fun. Just don't wreck any boats.

  • Phoenix,
    Hopefully I won't have to drive the boat and someone else will be the designated driver.

    Crazy Dan,
    Just one?

    You have a great weekend too.

  • The only island I care about is Roanoke, the island of the lost colony.

    I intend to find those missing colonists, a scant few centuries after their disappearance. I will need a good crew, and some... magnets.

  • I second Big Ben's comment. I don't think I even know how old they are. But it sounds like a good time. It's good to have a well off family.
