Greetings from a spring-like Outer Banks where many folks have come to town to enjoy spring break on the beach.
Sunrise services around the Outer Banks were well attended yesterday. Those who went to the beach were treated to a beautiful sunrise at approximately 6:45 am. This week’s Memory Monday photo is a good reminder of just how beautiful those clear early morning sunrises can be at this time of the year.
Want some good news? The NC Outer Banks are open for business.

Good Monday Morning from the OBX. We have a very nice week in store for us this week on the coast. Sunny skies are predicted each day, and temperatures will be above normal.
Were you awake this morning at 6:36 to welcome the sun and to welcome the month of March? We were and what a spectacular sight. Temperatures in the mid-60’s, clear skies and light southerly winds have March coming in like a lamb.
Greetings from a cool and blustery Outer Banks. We are not complaining as our weather has been heavenly compared to some areas of the country over the last week. We have received a lot of rain, and we even had a thunderstorm, but no frozen precipitation so far this year!
Alligators. Stingrays. Sea turtles. River otters. All kinds of fish, from highly prized gamefish to rare exotic species. Plus the largest collection of sharks in the entire state.
Greetings from the Outer Banks where it is another wet and dreary day. At least those of us here are only getting rain due to the warm temperatures. We feel for those folks up the east coast digging out of another snowstorm. Keep in mind spring is just a month away, and summer will be here before you know it.
How would you like to soar over sand dunes, fly high above sea and shore, and enjoy thrilling bird’s-eye views of lush fields and sparkling waters?
Good Monday from the Outer Banks. It is time for another Memory Monday photo submission to take center stage, and this week we have two pups at the Cape Hatteras lighthouse. We call this week’s photo Lighthouse lookouts.
