Good morning from a cool and blustery Outer Banks. Winds have been very strong for the last two days with steady northeast gales at 25 to 35 miles per hour with gusts over 55 miles per hour. Schools are on a 3 hour delay today (Monday) as we hope for better days ahead and this winter storm Diego heading off the coast and away from our paradise.
Greetings from the Outer Banks. We apologize that it has been a few weeks since we have posted something here on Memory Monday, but life gets in the way sometimes. We have lots of photos to post, and today we get things started with the Schellenger vacation highlights.
Of course the Christmas season is special no matter where you are, but why not spend it in the beautiful Outer Banks? While you probably won’t see a white Christmas on the coast, there are plenty of reasons why the Outer Banks make the perfect family destination, no matter the season. The weather is chilly but not bone-chilling, vacation rentals are at the best value you’ll see all year, and when summer leaves, it takes all the traffic and crowds along with it.
We really don’t mean to be repetitive here at Everything Outer Banks, but it occurs to us, although most people don’t get up early enough to enjoy them, the majority of photos people have on their phones is a picture (or 12) of an OBX Sunrise.
Good Monday morning from the Outer Banks. As this post is being published the sun is rising over the Atlantic ocean and we have yet another unbelievably beautiful day in store on the beach. As the song by the Beatles says “Here comes the sun, and I say – its alright!”
Maybe it’s the popcorn—the glorious, wonderful aroma of fresh popped popcorn that fills the air in the lobby of the Pioneer Theater in Manteo. The Creef family who owns the theater has always popped their own popcorn right there at the concession stand and it is much a memory of the theater as any movie that plays there.
Greetings again from a beautiful morning on the Outer Banks. The sky is nothing less than artistic this morning as the sun is rising over the ocean to start another week here at the beach.
There are some very good reasons why the Outer Banks is considered the premier destination for surfers on the East Coast. Rather than list everything, we’ll just reduce it to this—with 175 miles of beach and sandbar jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean there is almost always something to surf.
Good morning from a beautiful and for the most part back to normal Outer Banks. They last week has been quite a week with Hurricane Florence disrupting everything in the area. Family vacations were interrupted, the area was evacuated, we watched with anxiousness, and are now trying to get back to our regular schedules now that the storm has passed.
Evacuation Order to be lifted this weekend
