Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

Topsail Island

by Greg:

A photo of the fam from our beach house

For the last week, the Von Sherwood family singers took a little R&R at the beach with some of Nicolle's family. We had a great time and Greg will be spending the next 2 years trying to convince his family that Topsail Island is the place for the next Sherwood family reunion. Hopefully some of these pictures will do some of the convincing for him.


The view from our deck


Another nice little comparison:

September 1st - Pacific Beach, WA - Water Temp - 55 degrees

September 1st - San Diago, CA - Water Temp - 65 degrees

September 1st - Topsail Beach, NC - Water Temp - 80 degrees




Clara loved the ocean and the waves. She would run out into the water and would kick the waves as they would crash onto her.


She also liked digging in the sand, and then moving the sand in a toy truck


She was determined to get the sand transported



We got to body surf and boogie board. Nicolle's mother even went boogie boarding.

Here is the proof.

If you want to know how Clara felt about this place, just see the clip below. (The word she is repeating is "happy."

The week flew by and we are ready to go back soon. So anyone that wants to join us, just let us know.

There is very little convincing, water temperature wise but what about the actual temperature?

Well if you can't convince your family to go again with you. We are there! I love Topsail Island. How cute is that video of Clara? I feel like I haven't seen her in ages! I miss her!
