Greetings from the Outer Banks on this Christmas Eve! It is a beautiful Monday morning here on the Outer Banks. I had a refreshing walk on the beach this morning as the sun was rising over the Atlantic ocean and what is left of the cold moon setting in the northwestern sky. As my dog and I were exploring the beach for some treasures, we saw a pod of dolphins passing by making small waves in the otherwise calm ocean.We are told the "Cold Moon" that we saw a few days ago will not happen again in most of our lifetimes. The full moon dropping on the winter solstice is a very rare occasion. Quite a sight!What a lucky person I am to live in such a beautiful place and enjoy sights like an early morning walk on the beach with no one else in sight nearly every day.Kelly Branch stayed with Outer Banks Blue this past summer, and tells us she was lucky to get this shot. She provided us a great photo memory we share with you today.Here's a shot of a full moon from earlier this year setting over some houses in Corolla.Wherever you are today and whatever you are doing we hope you are doing it with the people you love the most, and are creating great memories (photo memories or otherwise). Enjoy the Christmas week, and keep in mind the reason for the season!All the best from the beach!
