Enjoying the beach!
Happy Monday everyone. We hope your teams won yesterday and are in the Super Bowl in two weeks. Lots of Pittsburgh Steeler fans here on the Outer Banks and among our usual guests so we feel for you, but we are very excited for Atlanta Falcons’ fans today who get to cheer for their team in the biggest football game for just the 2nd time in history.
Greetings from the Outer Banks in January! On this Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday the Outer Banks aren’t exactly the summer hot spot that it will be in a few months as we are feeling temperatures in the 40’s and we have overcast, cloudy conditions with a little rain coming through early this morning.
Baby It’s Cold Outside!
Greetings from the cold and frozen Outer Banks! We did not get as much snow as was predicted this past weekend (3 to 6 inches were predicted to fall on Saturday), but we did get about an inch of snow and the very cold temperatures which made (and is still making) an icy mess. Main roads are clear on the Outer Banks today, but yesterday was treacherous travelling on the beach, and with temperatures dipping into the teens both last night and the night before we expect there will be many broken pipes and problems in our houses when things warm again into the 50’s tomorrow.
Everyone loves to go on vacation. There is something about getting away from your normal surroundings that cleanses the soul, but often when we go on vacation we tend to leave our diets and exercise habits at home. This may make for a more relaxing vacation, but we all know that feeling of seeing the scale jump up 5-10 pounds after returning home. Here are ten great tips to staying in shape while on your Outer Banks vacation.
Happy New Year!
Well our phones are quite busy here at Blue today as folks are realizing it is 2017 and its time to reserve your special getaway at the beach for this coming summer. We have lots of great properties available, but we urge you not to delay as the best properties and the best weeks will be booking up quickly.
For foodies, a big part of vacation is the opportunity to try new local flavors. Experimenting with new ingredients, stocking up on treats not readily found at home, and maybe even learning a few new cooking or baking tips makes vacationing in the Outer Banks a foodie’s dream. If you’re a gourmet (or a wannabe), plan to take part in a few of these exciting activities during your next trip.
Wait for me!
We hope you had a great Christmas yesterday and are enjoying the holiday season. After spending this weekend with our families the Outer Banks Blue crew is back at work and getting ready for “The booking season.” Even though Outer Banks Blue has enjoyed more early bookings for next season than ever before, January 1st marks the start of our phones and our web site really getting busy with booking inquires. We expect 2017 to be a great year to vacation on the OBX, and we look forward to serving you and your family.
Wedding on the beach.
Well the weather today is not too great for a wedding on the beach with winds blowing 20 MPH plus out of the northeast and temps in the 40’s, but the Outer Banks has become a top wedding destination over the last few years.
Horsin’ Around in Corolla
So I am sure you are all aware of the Corolla Wild Horses that roam freely on the Northern Outer Banks. Today we share a rare photo of one of those horses, that is wild in a different sort of way.
