The hometown paper went along on a trip during which a local man proposed and his marriage proposal was accepted.
Lucas Lehmiller, of East Sparta, and Taylor Domer, of Dover, spent vacation time in Holden Beach, N.C., along with her family, during Aug. 18-26.
Lucas surprised Taylor and proposed to her while at Myrtle Beach on the 21st (where they also spent a few days). She said yes (of course) and the rest of the time there, Lehmiller, said was amazing.
He said everyone was also excited to see loggerheads or baby sea turtles hatch and get released to the ocean. They also viewed quite a few dolphins from their beach house, at Holden Beach.
The family experienced a different style of restaurant at Dick's Last Resort. Lehmiller said the restaurant crew runs on sarcasm and breaks almost all of the social norms.
Overall-- the family had a fun and relaxing time, with nothing more to do than relax in a beach chair and feel the tide roll onto their feet. The also enjoyed the time together with family.
