One of the more important parts of our preparation was pre-trip shopping. Proteins and bulk foods were purchased at Costco, produce was procured on the trip down at Morris Market, and perishables were picked up as the last stop before we checked in. We even made a special trip to Richmond to Penzey's Spices to stock up on spices for our meals (this will be a separate post). While I am a foodie, and my family loves to try new things, this was, first and foremost a vacation so I chose things that were delicious, easy to prepare, and highlighted fresh ingredients and produce we could get locally. That allowed us to do what we came here to do- enjoy each other and the beach! See below the family water ballet in the pool!
