My sister Sarah and I absolutely love getting all dolled up for special occasions. There’s something special about getting your hair done and spending a little bit more time on your makeup. And when it comes down to it, I adore dressing up in something nice and then dancing the night away with a certain handsome fellow (or a handful of fun gal pals).
But let’s face it, one can only keep that up for so long. (Unless you’re a princess, I suppose, in which case living in heels and perfect makeup is a part of your life). If that’s the case, however, my sister and I are most definitely not princesses.
Because on Sunday night, we were a couple of very tired, frazzled bridesmaids.
We had been up at 5:30am and after a long day of wedding photo-shoots, walking down the aisle, dancing, and even a beach bonfire, we didn’t make it to bed until midnight. To put it kindly, we were a mess.
The next morning, we scrapped any plans that would put us in sight of the general public and decided to find a beach. To me, the beach is the ultimate stress-release, and it’s a great way to unwind after a busy weekend. The promise of breakfast, followed by sand under our toes, gave us more energy than caffeine ever could!
Awwww, that’s better!
We ended up at the Sandy Neck Beach in Sandwich, which was almost empty when we got there! The shore was very rocky, so we had to wear our flip flops a lot. (That was the only downside to our visit there). But still, it was absolutely amazing. Sunshine, salty waves lapping at the shore, feeling calm and relaxed… It was the perfect way to end our busy weekend, for sure!
We even had a little makeshift photo-shoot!! 🙂
Rather than leave the beach area, we decided to just buy lunch at the snack shop on site, even though we weren’t entirely sure what the food quality would be like.
Sarah and I each bit into our lobster rolls and then gasped. Seriously, we gasped. These lobster rolls were jam-packed with sweet lobster and had the perfect blend of mayo and celery on a toasted bun. I’d say they give the Maine lobster rolls a definite run for their money and – should I have a lobster roll list going – these definitely would have made the Favorite Top Three!
Nate ordered the biggest, freshest scallops he had ever tasted.
So needless to say, that snack-shack at Sandy Neck Beach is no joke. It is absolutely delicious!
Three thumbs up for a chillaxin’ day at the beach and for just taking it easy when we needed it the most. 🙂
Oh, and Happy Friday!!! 🙂
