Oak Island with Umi

We brought Umi to Oak Island to enjoy the warm Atlantic ocean water
and the humid salty air for a few days.
Oak Island is such a beautiful place straight out of a Nicholas Sparks
movie...literally!  This is where the movie 'Safe Haven' was filmed.
We planted Umi's chair on the edge of the shore while she
watched everyone swim and play.
After a lunch of peanut butter sandwiches, it began to rain so
Umi and I huddled under our sun tent while
 everyone stayed in the water swimming. 
There was something exciting about
being on the beach in the rain, and the Nies couldn't get enough of it.

The ocean is so healing and soothing and I love that 
I've been able to share it with my mom these past few days.
