Sunset Beach trip

We have been lucky enough to go on two beach trips in the past two 
months! This time we drove to Sunset Beach for a long weekend with our dear friends, the Neels and the Gregory's! 
Brian, Jimmy and Jeff used to live together in college, and have remained close. Jimmy and Christen got married last May, and she has quickly become a dear friend. Christen's grandmother owns this beach house, "The Calypso," and we were fortunate enough to use it before rental season began. It was perfect.
The best part was the huge sun deck! We woke up to an amazing view while sipping coffee and enjoyed the sun setting over the inlet while sipping cocktails. 

We spent all day Friday soaking up the sun on the beach. 

 Jimmy and Brian buried Jeff...
 Ginna fed him puppy chow.
 And then we attempted to turn them into a 3 headed mermaid. We laughed so hard. 
That night we grilled out and ate dinner and ate on the deck.

And then we had a couple big rounds of Dominion. Look at all of these expansions!
Saturday morning we rented bikes and rode from the jetty to the pier. This was my favorite part of the trip. So. Much. Fun.

Our bike gang name: The Calypso 6

We spent the second half of the day enjoying another great day on the beach. The weather was perfect this day too, and the water was warm enough for the guys to play in the ocean while the girls relaxed in beach chairs with books and our feet in the ocean. We went out for seafood and ice cream that night.
After dinner, the guys smoked pipes and cigars on the deck while the girls went for an evening bike ride on the beach. 
We headed home when it got dark and had a relaxed evening of crafting while listening to Rosemary Clooney and sipping margaritas. The guys got in some video game time. :) Sunday was dreary and rainy which made it a little easier to say goodbye. We all wished this trip could have been longer, and we're already talking about next year's trip. I'm so thankful for this group of friends and starting new traditions.
