A Day at the Beach

Any day at the beach is a great day!! A morning walk on the beach.

After the hurricane the waves were rough.

The last day.  Hard to say good bye.

Vacation Food

This vacation started with good food!

On our way to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, we stopped at an old favorite restaurant called Surf Rider.  The crab cakes and broccoli with hollandaise sauce are one of my favorites.  It is a great way to start vacation!

A rainy Monday at the beach took my daughters and I to FatCrabs in Corolla for lunch!  Awesome place for peel and eat shrimp with good spices on them, crab legs and hush puppies.  Yummm!!

Nothing like finishing the day off with some warm donuts that have amazing choices of toppings – keylime with graham cracker topping, blueberry topping, peanut butter with chocolate and many more options.

We enjoy eating at the beach!

Goodreads:  Eleven years ago, Lindsey Nash escaped into the night with her young daughter and left an abusive relationship.Her ex-husband was sent to jail and she started over with a new life. Now, Lindsey is older and wiser, with a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her ex-husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she’s cut all ties. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded, and her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it’s her ex-husband, even though he claims he’s a different person. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead closer to home than she thought?

Chevy Stevens targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her—and ratchets up the stakes even more in a novel that explores the darkest heart of love and obsession.

Ope’s Opinion:  WARNING: Do not start this book unless you have ample time to continue reading one more chapter, one more, one more…..  It is amazingly intense!!!  On page one you be absorbed in the story.  During certain portions ( no spoilers ) you may need to remind yourself to breathe.  When you think the story is done, hold on… it isn’t – no details – just read to the end!  My only negative thought of this book is that it wrapped up a little too fast, a little too neatly, a little too easily. I would still recommend this book.
