Our Trip to Cinnamon Shore

Happy Thursday!  I finally had a little time to sort through some of our pictures from our recent trip to Cinnamon Shore on Mustang Island in Port Aransas, TX.  If you follow on Instagram you may have seen a couple of these already :)  We shared a home with friends of ours and had a really fun week here soaking up the sand and surf!  It is a charming beach community with stunning homes, a beautiful beach, gorgeous pools and fun activities including a s'mores and movie night, kids camps, etc.  We loved it here and hope to make it an annual trip.  Here are a few pictures from our stay...

One of the activities they have is a sandcastle lesson.  Nothing formal, just everyone gathered on the beach for a few instructions and then off to create!  It was actually really fun to learn and so easy!  I have been going to the Texas coast almost every summer all my life and now I finally know how to build pretty sandcastles with a plastic knife and fork :)

They have a couple of beautiful pools that we mostly just dipped in to remove all the salt and sand, as we spent most of our time at the beach.

Walking around the community admiring all the homes was of course one of my favorite parts of our trip :)  They are all gorgeous!  The architecture is beautiful and I fell in love with the all the porches.  Most have huge porches with either a swing, rocking chairs or Adirondack chairs.  Such a perfect spot to relax with a glass of wine or sweet tea.  Here's a few I captured...

They also have a huge lawn where everyone gathers in the evening and a couple of stocked ponds that we fished.  Even after a full day at the beach, the kids ran and played on the lawn or fished, while we enjoyed refreshing beverages.  Just a great way to end the day!  Both kids made new friends during our stay and there's just lots of great families to hang out with.  Overall a wonderful, close to home get away!

And finally, I got to get a peek at the 2015 Coastal Living Showhouse while we were there!  It's a stunning home!!  It opens next week, but in the meanwhile, you can see more about it here!   

Have a great day...
