This week’s Memory Monday entry comes to us from Shirley Fuller, of Lynchburg, Virginia who stayed with Outer Banks Blue Realty in 2009 at our Southern Shores vacation rental, the “Rum Runner”.
As we look around the Outer Banks this week on “Everything Outer Banks” we thought it would be appropriate to pass along to our readers the big news in Rodanthe this past week was the moving of the star of the movie “Nights in Rodanthe.” The iconic house known to locals as “Seredipity,” but to movie goers as “The Inn at Rodanthe” was moved last week.
Things in Kitty Hawk are just not the same this week as the new year brought to us the loss of a trusted friend and the closing the doors of our unofficial town hall. Wink’s grocery store in Kitty Hawk is closed. The familiar yellow happy face sign on the front of the store that had the right eye winking is down.
The New York Times Bestseller “1000 Places to See Before You Die” is a dreamers paradise. Sort of a life time bucket list the book makes one wonder about what it would be like to see the Highland games in Scotland, walk the Acropolis in Greece, and see the Penguin Rookeries in Antarctica.
This week’s Memory Monday Submission comes to us from Stephanie Clossin of Ashville, Pennsylvania. She and her family stayed in the “High Tide” vacation rental property in Nags Head September 19th through 26th.

The current gloomy economic environment is evidently affecting consumers’ interest in certain types of lodging accommodations, as revealed in the just-released Ypartnership/Yankelovich 2009 National Travel MONITOR. All of the information seems to point favorably to vacaton rental homes as a lodging alternative, and specifically places like the Outer Banks!
Dr. Beach (aka Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman) has evaluated all major public recreational beaches in the U.S. America and has recently released his his annual top 10 Beaches in the U.S. list for the 19th time.
Happy Memorial Day! The unofficial start to the summer season is upon us and here at Everything Outer Banks and we greet the day with excitement and reverence.
Well this week on Everything Outer Banks we have to take our collective hat off to the Outer Banks Relay for Life which benefits the American Cancer Society. Particularly we congratulate the Blue Team from Outer Banks Blue Realty Services which did a fantastic job raising money for the charity of our choice.
