WIAW On Vacation...

I am currently sitting on the couch at my aunt's house at Ocean Isle Beach, NC. Beach vacations are my favorite. The family is asleep and I am really wishing I had slept better last night.

My sinuses have decided to cause me some misery. I am waiting on my doctor to refill a prescription so by this time tomorrow I will be feeling much better. 

We have plans to spend some time at the beach and go to the movies later. 

So now onto the WIAW eats. 

We stopped for lunch at Cracker Barrel in Memphis on Saturday. I had a baked sweet potato with this salad, I ate it before I could take a picture. It was that good. 

We stayed at the Embassy Suites in Nashville. The construction in the hotel was a bit annoying, but the breakfast almost made up for it. Spinach and mushroom omelette with pancakes and hash browns. 

Pre Wilco dinner in downtown Nashville, no picture of my veggie burger. It was so good. There were black beans and chick peas in the burger. Dessert is pictured above. Cinnamon donut holes with caramel dipping sauce. I could have eaten the entire order, but I shared. 

Real food on the road. We decided to stop at an Ingle's grocery store near Asheville, NC and I had the salad bar. Makes me wish we had grocery stores like this in Oklahoma. Carson had a made to order sandwich and Josh and Camy had chicken strips. So much better than fast food. 

Then there was my post horrible run breakfast yesterday morning. Eggo waffle topped with peanut butter. I went a little crazy with the peanut butter and ended up cutting up a banana to top it off.

At The Beach...

We got to Ocean Isle Beach yesterday afternoon. After unloading the car, a trip to the grocery store and spaghetti we walked down to the beach. 

It was pretty windy, but it was a beautiful night. 

I got up this morning, though not near as early as I should have, and laced up for a run. 

I ran on the beach for a while. Let me just say that it was hot. Like running on the surface of the sun hot. Okay, maybe not that hot but it was 80 degrees and there were not many clouds in the sky. Trust me, it was hot. 

This is me not having much fun. In fact, I think you can barely call what I did running. It was hot. If I am going to run again I am going to have to get an earlier start. 9 am was not fun. 

After, 3.3 miles we got some breakfast and packed up for the beach. It was cloudy and even sprinkled on us for a little while. A rainy day at the beach I'd still better than a sunny day at work. 

What a great day at the beach. I got a little too much sun so I am really cold now. 

We did walk down and get ice cream.

I went with the root beer float. 

Here's hoping my sinuses are a little less crappy tomorrow.
