The Outer Banks are a family-friendly vacation spot with something fun for all ages. From history to farm animals, water parks to sand-sculpting contests, your crowd will never forget a vacation in the Outer Banks.
Greetings from the OBX! Summer is in full swing, and we are enjoying every minute of it. Lots of things to do and places to see, and we are trying to take it all in. Speaking of which tomorrow is a historic day here on the Outer Banks as it marks the 100th anniversary of the Mirlo Rescue on Hatteras Island.
Occupying 39 acres in Corolla the Whalehead Club today anchors Currituck Heritage Park. The building, painted a startling shade of yellow, is considered an outstanding example of Art Nouveau-style of architecture and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Greetings from a glorious Outer Banks on this Monday morning as the sun is shining brightly, the ocean is inviting, the rain has stopped (after 15 straight days of some sort of precipitation), and the temperatures are going to be in the high 80’s. It is one of those days where you just want to jump in a pool and land a perfect cannonball!
For some very valid reasons, the Outer Banks has a reputation for amazing sunsets. With sounds and bays to the west of the sand bar and a shoreline with a wide variety of habitat, the possibilities seem endless.
Here at all things Outer Banks, we like to keep things light and positive, but this Monday we have to be honest – this last week was a tough one. We had a lot of rain in the last 7 days, and our guests that were here last week were challenged to stay sane. We had rain every single day over the last 9 days, and so rainy day activities were all the rage on the Outer Banks.
There is something perfect about a summer day on the beach with a gentle breeze, warm sunshine and a good book. It doesn’t even have to be a good book—War and Peace is a great novel, but is it good beach reading material? Probably not because the ideal beach book is fun to read and usually not too long.
Greetings from a cooler and wetter Outer Banks on this Monday morning. We had a big rain event this past Saturday which has set the scene for a week of unsettled weather here. Much different than what has been a very sunny and dry summer so far. This week on Memory Monday we share photos of some friends that recently visited the OBX and shared some great weather, and great memories.
When summer comes around it’s hard to imagine that the permanent population of the Outer Banks from Carova to Ocracoke is maybe 40,000—and that’s only if Manteo and mainland Dare County are included. What may be just as hard to imagine is how many truly gifted musicians call the Outer Bank home—it a number that is out of proportion to the population.
Good morning and thanks for stopping by Everything Outer Banks to check out Memory Monday. Each week we provide you photo memories of our guests and they are always great. Some would call them Stellar. That takes us to our title this week as these pictures were brought to us by Kelly Stolar so we have named this week’s blog “Stolar Memories.” Get it?
