One of the quite pleasures of a stay on the Outer Banks is a morning or evening stroll along the beach looking for interesting shells or sea glass, or whatever the flotsam of the sea brings to our shores.
What a beautiful sunrise we enjoyed this morning. Reminds us of the song good morning Sunshine as the bright yellow ball rose over the ocean today. Not to be confused with the song Good morning Starshine by Oliver. Good morning sunshine is a silly song written and performed by by Aqua which just makes you smile.
Ready to explore Duck, NC, but not really sure where to start? While everyone has their own preferences, a perfect day can include good food, beaches, living like a local, shopping, and strolling. Here’s what we have in store for you.
Greetings from a wet OBX on this Monday morning. We had a strong line of thunderstorms roll through this morning that woke us up and cleaned off our cars so we are seeing some clouds this morning. But just as it is sung in the musical Annie – The Sun will come out tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow…there will be sun!
From the 1800s to the mid-1900s, sport hunting for ducks and other birds was a favorite activity for wealthy vacationers. As a result, private hunting lodges sprang up along the coastal bird migration route known as the Atlantic Flyway. Birds travel thousands of miles during migration, and many stop to rest at the same place year after year. From Jekyll Island, Georgia, to Corolla, North Carolina, hunters would gather at these migratory resting spots to take advantage of the easy pickings.
Greetings from the Outer Banks! We hope you are enjoying your Monday and looking forward to coming to see us at the beach very soon. This week we bring you a different perspective on the beach – an aerial view.
It’s no secret that one of the most popular outdoor activities on the Outer Banks is fishing. We know that not everyone who visits the OBX is a fishing enthusiast, or maybe only one or two in the group are. The whole point of family vacation is to spend time with loved ones in spite of differing interests. That’s why the various Outer Banks piers are a great way to meet everyone’s requests, fishing, lounging, entertainment, children’s activities, and the beach, all in one!
Happy Easter Monday! We hope you had a great Easter with your family. What an amazing Saturday night we had here on the OBX with the Blue moon rising over the ocean and a wonderful weather day on Easter Sunday. So many folks had wonderful Family time this weekend, and so many more are experiencing a full week of spring break this week.
Anticipation is part of the excitement of getting to the Outer Banks. Road tripping, even with a car full of little ones, can be fun if you’re prepared. Here are some creative road trip activities that will keep the kids happy on your way to an Outer Banks adventure:
We have posted many pictures here previously of the Corolla Wild Horses that roam freely north of Corolla in the Carova, Swan Beach, and N.C. State Park areas. This week we bring you some more pictures, and we bring you a news story. It seems there was a breakout of the horses last week and a group of them made a run for it to the lush grass yards of Corolla.
