Thanksgiving at Sunset Beach, NC

Turkey At The Beach...

Thanksgiving at the beach will always mean Get ready for family; shop, cook & clean. Turkey, ham & stuffing we ate Collards, yams and more on my plate. Forks were flying as our lips smacked Leftovers where? The fridge is packed! “Now let’s play a game” the kids did yell Too sleepy to fight, under the tryptophan spell Guesstures can be a humorous game, But a family feud started with those kids to blame. Play some corn toss & golf, walk on the beach Hear the ole “No Christmas gifts for me” speech. Steamed oysters & shrimp on Saturday night; The fire from the chimnea felt just right. Sunday comes, it’s time they go; Goodbye, goodbye, we love you so! Clean again, find my terrified cat. Sit down to relax and think, “It wasn’t so bad” Only 3 weeks till Christmas when we gather once more, I think maybe a Holiday cruise I’ll explore!

I wrote this poem one year after Thanksgiving and it's funny how the traditions continue. I always love to see my family come to Sunset Beach and we had excellent weather this year! Hopefully my family didn't see me skipping & throwing confetti before they got over the bridge this year. We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with the overeating, sleeping late & dysfunctional family time that comes with the annual tradition.
We hope you are all lucky enough to visit Sunset Beach this fall! With the peace & quiet that comes in the fall months, the wildlife has come out to play on the island. We’ve enjoyed the bald eagles that grace us with their presence and the island deer roaming around. We feel lucky to share this little piece of paradise with all walks of life and hope you’ll make the time to visit Sunset Beach, too. The Christmas shows in Myrtle Beach, SC are amazing! The always enjoyable Shallotte Parade is this Saturday, December 3rd which starts at 10 am. Also, on Tuesday, December 6th, the Old Bridge Preservation Society at Sunset Beach is having "Christmas at the Old Bridge!" Be sure to visit their website for details and don't miss this annual festive event.  Yes the holiday season is busy and you have much to do, but all the shopping and relaxing you need is right here at Sunset Beach. We hope to see you soon!
