Sun Will Come Out – Memory Monday 4/16/18

Rainbow shot - sun

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!

A Fun-Filled Adventure Exploring Pea Island National Refuge

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. READ MORE

Piers on the Outer Banks

Avalon Pier on the Outer Banks

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! READ MORE

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.

Memory Monday 3/19/18 – Sandy Memories

Greetings again from the sunny Outer Banks.  We had a remarkably warm February and evidently we are still paying the price for that as it has been much cooler than we like so far this March.    Spring is set to arrive this week so we are sure that means warmer weather will be here on a regular basis, and of course we have Easter less than two weeks away now so we all are ready for some beach time.  Speaking of beach time Sandy Zygmont recently stayed with Outer Banks Blue and shared a number of photo memories with us that we are posting today on Memory Monday.
