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.”
Wildlife of the OBXThis week’s Memory Monday Photo Submission comes to us from Kim Deane of Morrisville, North Carolina who stayed with Outer Banks Blue this past summer at the vacation rental property “Here Comes The Sun.” In fact, Kim and her family have stayed at Here Comes The Sun every year since 2010, and have already reserved their week for next year! The photos that Kim sent us reflect the abundance of nature’s beauty of the Corolla area with the Sandpipers, Wild horses, and of course the massive Ocean to Sound fence that keeps the wild horses penned in the area north of Corolla.

“I worked harder in one day at the Food Bank, than I have in any restaurant in my work history, and have never felt more enriched.” ~Michelle Elmore~
There is just something about summer time…flowers blossom, kids are finished with school work, routines change, gardens grow, families spend more time outdoors, cook outs, baseball games, pool parties…what I am missing?
Oh yeah…THE BEACH! Check out the perfect day to be on the beach in June! High of 92 and breezy with lots of feet in the sand and paws in the water! There are so many things to do at the beach, that it could take several vacations to cover them all, but make sure you do the most important one…sit back and relax and enjoy the scenery!
If you have forgotten to make reservations or need some help finding the right house, call today!
Denver Post Author Enjoys Vacation with Outer Banks Blue.
This week on Everything Outer Banks we want to share an article that appeared yesterday in the Denver Post newspaper that was written by Ricardo Baca. Ricardo stayed with Outer Banks Blue in late April and he obviously had a great time on the Outer Banks. We were excited to see how happy he was with his stay and wanted to share his experience with you.
Here’s a link to his story:
Families have been traveling for vacations on the Outer Banks for over 100 years!
For many years, the Outer Banks has been a hot spot for historic travel because of the battles fought on the sand, the challenges won in the air, and the memories made beyond the dunes. When you are counting down and awaiting your next steps on the sand, make sure to take photos and share your memories with the rest of the world! It is amazing to think of how much progress was made in such a small area in the past 100 years as far as technology and vacation luxuries go, imagine what might change in the next 100 years?
