Welcome to the Family!

About Us

Who We Are


We are the Ferree Family. 

My husband and I are proud to be residents of Morehead City, NC and are honored to be raising two amazing children here with everything the Crystal Coast has to offer. 

With this website, I want to invite more families to visit and move to the Crystal Coast while helping retain our existing families by helping everyone feel connected to our community and each other. 

With my Crystal Coast Mama Blog, I want to share information and tips for enjoying life at the beach, on the boat, and by the pool as a family.  I've learned a lot through trial and error! I’m always learning. 

Plus, it serves as a platform to share my children’s book - Learning My ABC’s and 123’s While Dreaming of NC’s Crystal Coast.

Our Favorite Past Times


My family loves the beach, boat, and pool!  And, we love telling everyone what an amazing place North Carolina's Crystal Coast is to vacation, visit, and live!  Playing with my children inspired me to write a little children's book/guide to family life on the crystal coast and then to start this blog to help families enjoy coastal life and the Crystal Coast together.  I plan to write quick blog posts that are short and sweet, whenever I find the time...

Fun Facts


My name is Kristin.  I loved growing up on the Crystal Coast and I love to play with my kids. Our area has so much to offer families.  I started this website to serve as an easy-to-use resource for local and visiting families.  Did you know the Crystal Coast is known as North Carolina's Gem?  It's true. You will quickly see why if you come to play.  And, I know once you visit, your family won’t be able to stay away.
