The Memorial Day weekend is coming up and we will see flags flying everywhere as reminders of those who have made it possible for us to be able to live free in this beautiful country. Many have sacrificed for us and for their own families and I believe they deserve to be remembered, acknowledged and celebrated. I believe they would want us to enjoy our freedoms this weekend as well. To spend time with friends and family in all the ways they have made possible for us. We who live in Brunswick County, NC are especially lucky to have access to many ways to celebrate – not the least of which is the ocean and the beaches. These provide enjoyment in boating, swimming, sunning, fishing, surfing and much more. Here are a few other ideas:
Smith Island Art League Memorial Day Show – Bald Head Island, NC (http://southport.insiderinfo.us/annual-events/may/)
Included in the many Memorial Day Activities on Bald Head Island is this art show where you will find paintings, pottery, jewelry, stained glass, fabric art and more.
The North Carolina Maritime Museum at Southport, NC (http://southport.insiderinfo.us/attractions/)
At this museum, you will enjoy not only the maritime history and exhibits but interactive exhibits such as steering a ship’s wheel, a deep diving research periscope and a nautical knot board as well.
Brunswick Nature Park – Town Creek, NC (http://leland.insiderinfo.us/sports-fitness-parks/parks/)
If you are considering having a picnic, this 900 acre park is an excellent place to take the family. You can go hiking, kayaking, canoeing, exploring, biking and more while you are there.
