Hurricane Warning, State of Emergency, and Mandatory Evacuation in Effect
The Mandatory Evacuation order continues to be in effect for the Entire Outer Banks and now a Hurricane Warning is in effect for areas south of Duck. A Tropical Storm warning is in effect for areas north of Duck. This means the winds and effects of that level of a storm are likely to be in place within 48 hours.
Greetings from the Outer Banks. After a few days of unseasonably warm temperatures here on the OBX it is definitely feeling like winter again with freezing temps and winds that we’ve come to expect in January. Soon enough we will be back to summer so we do enjoy this down time at this time of the year. This week’s Memory Monday photo “Say Cheese” reminds us that folks can have fun on the beach at any time of year.
Duck Vacation Memories
This week’s Memory Monday photo submission comes to us from Kelly Adams who stayed with Outer Banks Blue at the vacation rental property “Tornquist” in Duck.
This week’s Memory Monday photo submission comes to us from Dr. Jay Herman of Crofton, Maryland who sends us this photo of a “Sand Shark.” There must have been a lot of time spent on making this monster! That is one big shark.
Early Morning Beach Scenes
Special thanks goes out this week to Bobbi Harding of Baltimore, Maryland who provides us a wake up call on this Monday morning with some great early morning shots from the beach.
Dog Days of August!
This week’s Memory Monday photo submission comes to us from Patricia Bellantonio of Bridgeport, Connecticut who stayed with Outer Banks Blue earlier this year in the property “Homer’s Port” in Corolla.
This shot is of Patricia’s baby “Luke” who was trying to keep cool at the beach and as Patricia says “wondering where his cold water dish is.”
A Girl Time Escape to the Outer Banks
Whether it’s you and your daughters, multiple generations, or multiple families sharing a vacation property for the week, the Outer Banks is the perfect spot for the girls to relax and create memories together. Here are a few ideas to help you plan your special “girls-only” time.
Special thanks to Rachel Moore or Silver Spring, Maryland who provides us this week’s Memory Monday photo submission! Rachel and her family stayed with Outer Banks Blue in Nags Head in the Vacation Rental property “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem,” and sends us this adorable picture from one of her crew visiting the North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island and having an up close experience with one of the fish there.
