We arrived Saturday and the heat and humidity felt great. We had a 20 minute stop at Hurleys and Blackbeards on the way to NS. The Retreat unit we have is spacious and the view seems endless. Unpacked and settled on the lanai. After 10 minutes had a conversation with my myself..."Oh my gosh, I think I'm going to feel trapped". I thought the quiet and lack of people and serenity might be unnerving. After 2 hours on the property, on the lanai...glass in hand I was saying "This is the best place ever". Spent all of Sunday at the condo, fell asleep on the beach once or twice. Was absolutely relaxed from head to toe...and hadn't even had a drink until the evening. If ever you wonder if you can stray from the hustle and bustle of 7MB to the peace of the NS...don't wonder. Without a doubt it does a mind and body good. Actually headed to GT today and I dread it. Don't want to leave my point of paradise right now. Or ever. Sue and Matt...I'm getting it.
