This is the 80 Anniversary year of outdoor drama The Lost Colony. Written by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Paul Green and first performed in 1937, except for four years during WWII—1942-1945—the play has been a mainstay of Outer Banks life.
We hope everyone had a great Father’s day yesterday. It sure was a hot one here on the Outer Banks with temps in the high 80’s and the humidity right there too. A great day usually starts with a great sunrise, and this week we have a Kitty Hawk sunrise for you.
Greetings from the Outer Banks on a sunny Monday morning where last week the beach nourishment operations began in Duck to create More Beach to Love.
More Beach to Love is the website that our Dare County government officials have created to keep everyone updated on the progress of a much needed, and long-awaited pumping of sand on our eroded beaches. The project has been talked about for years, and delayed from the Spring of 2016, but it is finally here and it is happening quickly.
Whether you are traveling with your own clan, a group of friends, or other families, road tripping as a group has perks. One of the biggest advantages of family travel is congregating in one of those spacious, gorgeous, oceanfront Outer Banks rental houses you’ve always admired.
Happy Monday! This week’s Memory Monday photo submission comes to us from Karen Lombardo of Round Hill, Virginia who shares some great memories of her family’s vacation on the Outer Banks. Our vacation rental properties were built for great memories, and Karen shares with us several examples of how to best enjoy the OBX with your family at the beach!
Visit the Outer Banks between May and September and you may get to witness one of Nature’s most amazing sights: nesting sea turtles. Did you know that sea turtles spend their lives in deep water, only coming ashore to lay eggs? Sea turtles are among the largest reptiles on Earth — some can reach almost 2,000 pounds. It can take up to 50 years for a female sea turtle to be ready to reproduce, and then she can live to be 100. Little is known about these mysterious creatures, which is one of the reasons that locals are passionate about protecting them.
Happy Belated Mothers Day to all of the mother’s out there. We had a great weekend here on the Outer Banks with sunny skies and warm weather. Today’s Memory Monday photo submission has a great story behind it and so we step aside to hear the story of Danny’s Necklace from Fred Streb of Chantilly, Virginia who stayed with Outer Banks Blue at the Corolla Vacation Rental property “Island Hopping.”
Greetings on this beautiful Monday from the Outer Banks also known at “May Day.”
On this beautiful Monday we bring you a beautiful sunrise on the Outer Banks in Nags Head from a recent Outer Banks Blue vacationer who rented from us in Nags Head last summer.
When on vacation in the Outer Banks you want to be at the beach and enjoying the scenery as much as possible. That’s why there are so many places to enjoy the outdoors while dining out on the Outer Banks. While we missed a few here are some of our favorite places where you can enjoy some amazing food with a view.
Happy Easter Monday to one and all. What a gorgeous Easter Sunday we had here on the Outer Banks yesterday with temperatures reaching into the high 80’s. A perfect day for a family gathering on the beach.
