Kayaks in Kitty Hawk

FINALLY! I’ve been dying to go since it started warming up and we finally had the time to. I was pretty adamant about doing this on the Outer Banks because I needed to see the ocean, so we paid a little more to do it there. Kayaking isn’t an expensive thing to do, but at the beach, it’s always more. We went to Kitty Hawk Kayaks + Surf School and paid 25$/hour, but an hour was plenty for today! We went about 30 minutes out and then turned around. You can  go all the way to the sound but it looked really rough driving over the bridge, so we didn’t get that far. We saw tons of turtles, ran into trees, each other, and it was so funny. The weather was perfect – warm but the canal was shaded, breezy, and lovely! We didn’t have to actually transport the kayaks, they put them in the water on site, which was a huge plus! And they do military discounts! I really loved this so much and now I’m definitely thinking  Kyle and I need our own kayaks. I always thought I would love it, but this assured me that buying them would be a good idea!

The woman there helped us into our kayaks and they have a nifty little dock there to put the boat on while you get in – we were lucky the water was so high so we could do it this way, because I think typically, you put the kayak in the water and use the dock to walk on, which makes it more difficult to get in.

You pay before you leave based on how long you were out, and when we finished up, we headed to Bob’s Grill (Eat & Get the Hell Out!) for lunch. It’s totally a go-to for me when I visit this area and I was really wanting grits. Love me some grits, you guys! We drove to  Jennette’s Pier so I could see the ocean and play with the GoPro some more. Newly obsessed, by the way.

Here’s a few snaps from our adventure – I definitely recommend adding this to your summer to-do list if you’re looking to get outdoors, be adventurous, and have some fun!

  • My dad left a bag of my grandmothers post cards from people over the last 40 years on the table this morning. I spent about an hour going through them and trying to read them. It was fascinating! Stamps from other countries, 1 cent, 20 cents, the Great Wall of China, the beautiful Amalfi coast. So so so cool.
  • Being chronically ill doesn’t make you a “burden”.
You’re not some unfortunate thing that happened. You’re not “less than”, an “inconvenience”, or “annoying”. You’re not your illness. 
What you ARE, is:
* Every bit as much a person as anyone else.
* A complete and total BADASS for handling the cards you’ve been dealt ON TOP of doing life just like everyone else.
* Deserving of a person that’s understanding, supportive, and doesn’t make you feel GUILTY for things that are beyond your control. 
And I hate that this is something I have to constantly remind myself of.

  • I am feeling SO good today! 👏🏼 I’ve been thinking a lot lately about why I feel the way I do at this point in my life and I’m learning. I’ve said it a million times & I’ll say it again for good measure: the relationship you have with yourself is so. important. Nourish it, feed it, watch it blossom. And youll surprise yourself when the time comes that the universe tests your strength. #reallifeis #yearofyou #selflovesoldier
  • Last night I fought consciousness HARDDDD- but still managed to fall asleep before 3am. 🎉 and I got up early, grabbed coffee with a friend, and came home to have a productive afternoon of catching up on work. I might pop on my stories for a little bit to word vomit some more but we’ll see. 🙄 #happythursday #reallifeis
  • Over it. 
Where’s my sunshine.
I want to sunbathe like a lizard.
