Wine and Design

Are you ready to unleash the inner artist in yourself on your vacation? Well, we found the perfect place for you! Sign up, show up, sip up, and PAINT! At Wine & Design in Morehead City, you can have fun and socialize all while you sip on a tasty glass of wine and paint something absolutely beautiful! These group painting classes are taught by local artists and are so much fun! Show up with friends or go alone, you are sure to have a great time.


The Wine and Design studio is a quaint little “hole in the wall” located at 412 Evans Street, Unit B in Morehead City. When you walk in you instantly feel like you’re ready to create something unique to your style and taste. The walls are lined with beautiful paintings by the artists themselves and also by those who have attended the classes. The artwork doesn’t even stop there! If you walk into the restroom, it’s covered in colorful canvases! Even though it’s small, it is a very inspiring little space.

This whimsical studio allows you to bring your favorite beverage of choice: beer, wine, soda, juice or water. You can also feel free to bring your favorite snacks, appetizers or even catering – any of your favorite eats! There is plenty of table space for food and drinks, so go crazy! Luckily, the studio provides the plastic cups and the corkscrew! Of course, you must be 21 years of age to consume alcohol, but people of all ages are welcome.

The more the merrier! Come alone or bring a group! I went with my mom, who is as much of a wine “enthusiast” as I am. We got to mingle with the other members of the class and it was so much fun! It’s best to arrive at the studio 15 minutes prior to get signed in, fix a glass of your favorite drink and mingle with the others. When we walked in we were immediately greeted by the artist, Rhonda. She was a sweetheart and you could tell she really enjoyed teaching this class. She made sure to make a personal connection with each of us and made us all feel warm and welcome. This really is the perfect place to sip, chat and paint!

Just remember, there are 3 very important rules! 

Rule Number One: There are no mistakes! Take your creativity to infinity and beyond!

Rule Number Two: Paint brushes go in the water – not in your wine!

Rule Number Three: HAVE FUN!

Seriously… This is like paint by numbers, but for adults, with wine. Are you convinced yet?

The fun doesn’t stop here! Another great thing about the studio location is that it’s right near the Morehead City waterfront. Here, you can take in beautiful views and also grab a great bite to eat at one of Morehead’s well-known restaurants. My personal favorite is the Ruddy Duck and it’s within walking distance of the studio!

Wine and Design in Morehead City is the perfect thing to do to bring out your creative side and sip some tasty wine! A wonderful attraction in Morehead right by the waterfront with a beautiful view, right down the street from divine restaurants with mouthwatering dishes, and an entertaining activity for an evening out. How could you go wrong?!

I had so much fun spending my evening at Wine and Design and I cannot wait to go back again and bring more friends! I found the inner artist in myself and now you can too!

A Picture on the Coast

A Post by Heidi Lanier- Bluewater Realtor

First and foremost, I am not a professional but I do consider myself a photographer.  I love taking pictures of anything and everything for many reasons.  Taking pictures allows me to see the beauty of life every day and the ability to relive that day or moment at the click of a button.  Snapping photos helps me forget my worries even if for only a minute or two and allows me to share wonderful  The word Memories  with the important people in my life.  

I’ve been taking pictures most of my adult life. Looking through a lens has given me a big appreciation for my family.  To look back at photos of relatives that have passed, of good times with my sisters, of my parents and grandparents nervously smiling for my camera, seeing my children grow up on film, gives me great joy.  And now my granddaughter, Veda, posing for me with her infectious smile and bright eyes makes all my daily worries and stresses just melt away.  She is my most amazing subject!

Taking pictures allows me to see the world in my own way and tell my own story through photos.  This is a hobby I can never give up and plan to enjoy many years to come.

I’m Heidi Lanier, and Swansboro, “The Friendly City by the Sea” on the Southern Outer Banks of North Carolina, is my home.  I am single and love to fish and enjoy anything that has to do with the outdoors.  I count my two grown children, David and Hollie, among my best achievements in life—along with getting into real estate and getting my PADI licenses.  I have been with Bluewater Real Estate for 18 years, and I have been in the real estate industry assisting sellers and buyers as they make informed decisions for over 33 years.

As a person who has lived in and around military and resort communities most of my life, I specialize in all forms of real estate transactions including resale, investment, commercial and new home sales.  I strive to be sensitive to the needs of customers with a special emphasis on smooth transitions when it comes to relocating.  Whether it is a customer’s first home or third, I am sensitive to the needs of each individual client.

Buying a home is about decision-making, and you can only make the best decision when you have all the information available together with an experienced expert who can interpret if necessary.  If you are planning to buy property on Emerald Isle or the surrounding areas, please contact me.

I believe the difference between the ordinary and the extraordinary is the extra effort that goes into a real estate transaction.  My vision is to create a relationship with you and your business not for just one transaction, but for life.  I welcome any referrals that may come my way, and I will handle each transaction with knowledge, sensitivity, and a passion to connect my clients with just the right real estate on the Crystal Coast.

A Night on the Water in Beaufort

A Night on the Water in Beaufort

Y’all have not lived until you indulge yourself on one of the coast’s sunset dinner cruises. Two lucky ladies in the marketing department and their other halves got a chance to steal away from our under one year olds and enjoy a night on the water in Beaufort with the rest of Bluewater’s Real Estate team on a night to remember. The Captain aboard The Crystal Coast Lady was kind enough to give a scenic tour of the Beaufort to Morehead City Waterfront while we swiftly sailed the sound of our beloved coast.

The evening was topped with great food from The Crabby Patty located in Havelock, NC. Each dinner cruise is catered by varying local restaurants scheduled by The Crystal Coast Lady. I feel if many of my posts are centered around food, but when you live here, there is nothing better than the local fare. The night was full of friends and laughing, and we evne had a magician aboard. Thankfully, which happens often on the cruise, we had the opportunity to see dolphins! No matter how long you live here or how many times you see them, these magnificent creatures sure know how to make a girl feel special when they say hello.

To escape the Beaufort waterfront and sail our way to Morhead City we had the amazing opportunity to see the Beaufort Bridge lift. If you have never seen a lifted bridge, it is a sight. Each side was pretty much vertical in order to let us by. Check out the video!
