Lighthouse looking – Memory Monday 2/12/18

Good day from the OBX!   It is a very warm, but a little wet day here at the Outer Banks today.  We had record setting temperatures yesterday (74 degrees is February!), and it really makes us look forward to the arrival of spring.  Today’s Memory Monday photo gives us a good example of two other types of weather we experience.   Lighthouse weather and hurricane weather.

Wedding on the Beach – Memory Monday 2/5/18

Good Monday morning from the cool Outer Banks.  We hope you were satisfied with the results of the Super Bowl last night and looking forward to a great day. Sorry to the Patriots fans, but we are sure Philly fans are flying high today.  What a great game if you did not have a rooting interest.  We know that doesn’t soften the blow for Pats fans, but it was entertaining.  For whatever reason, and in one of the worst transitions…..we thought it would be a great day to share pictures of a wedding on the beach!.  Sorry, that was really bad.

This week’s Memory Monday photo submission comes to us from Angela Baldwin of Owings Mills, Maryland who stayed with Outer Banks Blue recently in the property “High Dune” in Duck.   In this picture you can see that they are not quite sure what they are looking at….is it a Bird?  What exactly is that thing?  Well it is actually a CRAB.

Storm Warning – Memory Monday 11/27/17

We are all a little bit excited around here because this week marks the official end to the Hurricane season (11/30 is the official end to the season).  This has been one heck of a year in terms of named storms and we were very fortunate to have gotten through the storm season unscathed.   We had one minor scare in September, but overall the Outer Banks did very well in 2017 in terms of named storms, but we are glad to see it go.
