We made it! Because of a later than normal start, the drive was a little longer than most years, but we got here in 12 hours, give or take. The house is great, the pool is great and as you can see from the pics the view from the upper deck is great. We stayed house bound on Sunday, making the most of the pool. Monday we ventured to Buxton beach and the waves weren't as wild as they look in the pictures.
Eddy and Nick are somewhere in the surf, they said the waves were tame.
