While I won’t be receiving any wedding pictures from our photographer until later this month, I realized that I can share some honeymoon pictures and info!
We honeymooned in Kill Devil Hills, NC, which is in the Outer Banks. We left for our honeymoon right after our reception and drove to Virginia to stay the night at a hotel, then we got up the next day and drove a few more hours the Outer Banks.
The coolest thing happened while we were driving from our reception to Virginia. It was pretty late, probably 12 A.M. We were talking and driving and then bam! We saw the honey moon! The moon looked so close to the horizon and it was huge. It was definitely the color of honey, too.
I had no idea that the honey moon was occurring until Jimmy remembered when he saw it. We were both just staring the moon for like an hour. I can’t tell you how many times we said “I’m going to remember this for the rest of my life!” haha.
Apparently the honey moon is only seen once every 100 years, so it won’t be seen again until June 2098 (whoa…). Needless to say, it was neat to see the honey moon on the way to our honeymoon! You can find more info about it here and here.
We rented a cottage that was a three minute walk from the beach, and we pretty much just relaxed all week. It felt so good to have absolutely nothing to do after the crazy busy weeks leading up to the wedding.
Touristy things we did:
-Climbed the Currituck Beach Lighthouse
-Visited Jockey’s Ridge State Park (it has massive sand dunes!)
-Went to the beach and collected a seashells
-Visited the Avalon and Jeanette’s Fishing Pier
-Walked the boardwalk in Duck, NC
Jimmy said that his favorite thing to do was visit Jockey’s Ridge State Park to climb the sand dunes. My favorite part was relaxing by the pool and doing everyday-type things like drinking coffee in the morning and getting ready together.
Well, this post feels incredibly disorganized and random, haha. I have more pictures and thoughts to share, so I’ll break this up into two posts (I always promised myself I’d never do that… oh well!), and hopefully the next one will be more organized ;-).
Where is your favorite place to vacation?
