Last year we spent an entire week at one of our new favorite places: Topsail Island. See last years posts here and here. We stayed on the North part of the beach with our close friends, The Bailey’s, and it was exactly what we could have hoped for. Basically barren beaches, a reasonably priced beachfront home, and true relaxation. This year my mom rented the same house for a week in July and although we couldn’t stay the entire time, we did make it up for about 2.5 days, including my actual birthday. Although it was a quick trip, it was amazing being back in a place we made so many wonderful memories last year, and getting to share in some new memories with my family. I brought along both my film and my digital camera, but actually shot more with the 35mm film camera. The images below are a mix of film and digital. Here are some of my favorites…definitely images we will treasure for a long time!
