When the Wright brothers were conducting their aviation experiments in Outer Banks in the early 1900s, food was scarce. There was only one grocery store in the area, and it usually had bare shelves. Orville Wright complained that he was living on condensed milk, one spoonful at a time. Orville would be delighted to know that today his beloved home has a reputation for some of the finest food on the Coast.
Greetings on this Columbus Day. It is unseasonably warm on the Outer Banks this morning, with temperatures headed to the 80’s today. A beautiful sunrise has already taken place, and tonight certainly will provide us another great sunset.
Beneath the waters off Ocracoke Island the restless soul of Blackbeard searches in vain for a final resting place. A spectral presence can be seen, it is said, searching the Pamlico Sound at Teach’s Hole, just south of Ocracoke Village. So goes the story of Blackbeard’s Ghost, combing the waters, no doubt, for his head that Lieutenant Robert Maynard took with him when he returned in victory to Virginia.
Greetings from the Outer Banks on a clear and cooler Monday morning. Fall is definitely in the air as the nighttime temps have dived down into the low 60’s and this past week we had high temps in the 70’s. A great time of year to have a wedding, and so we bring you this week a collection of engagement pictures we’ve received over the past several months.
Hurricane Maria is tracking up the east coast, and to ensure you are aware of the latest information from the coast we wanted to provide you a brief update from the beach.
Greetings from the Outer Banks where all eyes are looking to the south and east today in anticipation of the passing of Hurricane Maria. The sunrise this morning had some red tint to it which is never a good thing.
Greetings from the Outer Banks on this Memory Monday. We start your Monday off with a cute kid on the beach this week.
Keep a good thought for us this week as we all wait and watch anxiously for the passing of Hurricane Jose. Forecasts take the big boy storm off of our coast by a few hundred miles, but we are experiencing some clouds, breezy conditions and some off and on rain today. Enough weather to chase everyone off of the beach and for the red flags to be flying on the dunes today warning swimmers to stay out of the water. Let’s hoe this is as bad as it gets with regard to the weather this week.
Greetings on this Patriot Day 2017. For those of us old enough there is always a couple of constants about today. First we all remember where we were when we got the news, and the other is the incredible feeling of betrayal that something like the 9/11 attacks could actually happen on our soil.
