In October I went with my friend Isabel and her family to Topsail, North Carolina.
We were in a beautiful beach house that was just a short walk away from a pier and a bit of a longer walk away from the south end of the island.
It was amazing to be able to wake up to the ocean and go out on the beach everyday.
We had a lot of fun adventures and played a lot of frisbee and football.
I had a wonderful two weeks with my friends, it was so much fun getting to hang out with them (and get on their nerves) living together for a while.
We went to a unique craft fair one day called Autumn in Topsail and I got to photograph this adorable bird.
I spent my 17th birthday in North Carolina, we went to lunch and Mrs. Johnson made me a wonderful birthday dinner and cake.
The pier was just a 15 minute walk away, Isabel and I thought the fat birds that hung around there were amusing.
It was such blast spending two weeks there and I can't wait until next year.
It was so wonderful being able to watch the sunsets and sunrises over the ocean. Every time I get to experience such beautiful things I am grateful that I can travel and see more of the world with my friends and family.
