Happy Labor day to everyone. We hope you have had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to a fantastic fall. Outer Banks Blue has all kinds of options for you for a weekend getaway or a truly relaxing week at the beach. Just keep us in mind when the urge hits you.
Greetings from a beautiful day here on the Outer Banks. Like you we are engulfed with Eclipse fever here today as it is predicted that we will get 90% totality of the event at approximately 2:45 PM today.
We have received literally hundreds of photos here at Outer Banks Blue over the last few years of doing our “Memory Monday” photo submission contest, but this one takes the cake for planning. Can you say “Incoming!”
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.
Happy Patriots’ Day!
Some of us are dreading today because it marks “Tax Day” on our calendars (don’t forget you have to get your taxes in by Midnight tonight!), but in Massachusetts, Maine and Wisconsin today is a state holiday that commemorates the battles of Lexington and Concord (American Revolutionary War).

Each week we look forward to sharing with you photo memories of our guests on Mondays. We call it “Memory Monday,” and this week we share a photo from one of our guests at Outer Banks Blue from this past summer from Kill Devil Hills.
This week’s Memory Monday photo submission comes to us from Kelsey Rudd who brings us this photo of “Sister Love.”
Happy Birthday Marines!
Last week I happened to be travelling in Florida and was waiting for my plane in Orlando while reading a book. I was startled to hear a gate agent at Southwest airlines yell a “yahoo” and started applauding. Looking up I saw a group of young Marines walking through the concourse in full gear. Her appreciation for their service soon spread like wildfire and within 30 seconds nearly every passenger in the area was on their feet and applauding the service of these young men. It was quite a scene.
On this day that we pause to recall those who died while serving in the U.S. Armed forces we have only two words to sum up our feelings…
All the best from the beach!
