A midsummer weekend's dream. That's all I can call it. As strange as it seems, I don't think I'd ever visited Topsail Island until this past July. It's situated almost exactly halfway between the two beach regions I usually go to, and I've hit above and below it countless times, but never split the difference. But someone planted the seed and I decided this was the place to go for a change of scene this summer. And 900 photos later was I ever glad I did. And this? Is why that trip to Topsail gets a post all to itself. One shot from each day of the trip. And I'm gonna shut up now because these images need no narration.
