We are covered in the white stuff in the Outer Banks – it’s a little strange, but beautiful to see snow covered sand dunes on the Outer Banks. Enjoy a few photos from today’s Outer Banks Blue adventures!
Happy to be at The Beach!
This week’s Memory Monday photo submission comes to us from Lissette Petry, of Rockaway, New Jersey who stayed with us in Corolla at the property “Guest Quarters” last July.
It may be winter, but in the Outer Banks, the competition is about to heat up…
Are you a fan of the National Geographic Channel hit series, Wicked Tuna? Love the Outer Banks?

Day at The Beach!We hope you are enjoying this Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. Whenever there is a holiday at the beach we think of heading to the beach, and indeed this week’s Memory Monday Photo submission reminds us of that. Loreal Hooten provides this week’s pictures of a day at the beach in the “Four Wheel Drive Territory” of the northern Outer Banks. As anyone who has been there knows where the pavement ends in Corolla the fun on the beach begins as there is another 12 miles of beach only accessible with four wheel drive vehicles. Loreal’s photos reminds us of that area and a fun day her family had there.

The northern beach area of the Outer Banks is accessible to anyone with an appropriate vehicle. You can even catch a glimpse of the Corolla Wild Horses. Be aware however that you may not approach these magnificent animals or feed them.
This week’s Memory comes to us from Beth Frye of Butler, Pennsylvania who stayed with us this past August.
Who doesn’t need a good hug on a Monday morning?!
Ever wonder what to do with all of those tiny shells and pieces of driftwood you (or your kids!) find during your Outer Banks Vacation? Or any beach vacation, for that matter…

As our neighbors to the north are currently drenched in snow, we have no snow to report here on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. However, recent sightings of a Snowy Owl have birders and nature enthusiasts excited about its appearance. It has been a number of years since the last sighting of this beautiful bird along the coast of North Carolina. They have usually not traveled this far south, so there is no wonder the excitement level is high for those who track this bird!
