Another Reason Coastal Living is one of my favorite mags

Coastal Living just announced its 
10 Happiest Seaside Town for 2015 on www.coastaliving.com. 
Here's how they picked the winners (courtesy of Coastal Living). 

We began with every place we've lauded as a Dream Town, and took your nominations online, too. From there, we looked at the rank on the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, percentage of clear and sunny days, healthiness of beaches, commute times, walkability, crime ratings, standard of living and financial well being of the locals, geographic diversity, and our editors' assessment of each town's "coastal vibe." The result: an amazing list for 2015 from every coast! 

They picked one of my favorite places! It is just an hour from Wilmington by car and a short boat ride from Bald Head. 
It is quaint, beautiful and this town (pop.3,600) is full of charm, old oaks, great shopping and some delicious food.
 
We are at Bald Head this week on a family vacation so we packed up the boat and headed on over...  
If you didn't already know... drumroll... the Happiest Seaside Town in America is Southport, NC! 

We stopped at Provision Company for THE BEST SEAFOOD for lunch. They have the best peel-and-eat shrimp and it is the perfect boat pit stop.

The kids (and Teddy) had a blast. 
Did I mention they have delicious food! We love to head over to The Pharmacy for date night. 
And when not on a date (i.e., I'm dragging my kids from the BHI ferry and may just need to swing by and pick up a "small" table or dresser... Rebecca's has some fun finds (consignment furniture and accessories).
It is the most picturesque town. If you haven't stopped by, you should... 
 
Congrats Southport! You are America's Happiest Seaside town!
Great choices Coastal Living (there are lots of good ones listed) so check them out at online Coastal Living or in the July issue on stands soon....
bye bye birdie...
