topsail island 2015 - part 3


while we were in topsail island, we got to enjoy a lot of boating.  our friends have a few different boats at their beach house.  on our first day there, we took a ride on one of their boats and we went to a little island nearby.  we also got to sail aboard their catamaran and we took a ride aboard their skiff too.  ryan actually got a chance to sail all three boats.  i was so impressed by how well he did!  he is a natural sailor!

on our ride aboard the skiff we set crab traps in the marsh.  we had a crab boil with the fresh blue crabs for dinner one day.  it was tasty but messy.  in addition to fresh crabs, our friends also caught a ton of shrimp in their shrimp traps.  we had several shrimp dinners while we were there.  you can't beat fresh seafood!

love, laurie

I really enjoyed eating all of that fresh caught seafood. The boat ride was fun and cooling with the breeze.
