Our Weekend in Southport

Posted on 03/11/2013

After a long winter I’m really glad to see Daylight Savings Time arrive. What a beautiful weekend we had to enjoy that extra hour of daylight, too! We were on the go all weekend long. Our family just climbed into the car and drove towards Southport looking for things to do. We were not disappointed either.

Southport restaurantsOn Saturday we went to the Franklin Square Gallery in Southport to check out their Spring Show where they were displaying the most recent award winning paintings. This free gallery is definitely worth checking out when you’re in the area. If you haven’t been there yet, the Spring Show runs though March 23 so there’s still plenty of time to get there.

Saturday evening was something special because we went out to dinner at one of the many fine Southport restaurants in the area and then to the Brunswick Little Theatre to watch a comedy performance written by A. Jones Hope Wooten. I don’t know when I’ve laughed quite so hard! It was nice to get out for some much needed entertainment. I have to say, it almost felt like I was on a date!

While we were looking at listings of Southport restaurants where we could have dinner Saturday evening we found some great ideas for lunch the next day.  So on Sunday we went to Baked With Love where they had wonderful sandwiches, salads, soups and quiche on the menu. We had them make up a picnic lunch to go for us. Then we took it down by the water, spread a blanket, and had the most delightful afternoon.

What a great weekend this was!
