Excitement is building in anticipation of the upcoming Outer Banks Taste of the Beach (March 5th through March 8th)! Ticket sales are extremely brisk, and many events have already sold out, but some of the prime events still have room and the weather is supposed to be great!
So the Outer Banks Blue Vacation Rental Crew is back on the beach this Monday after an eventful weekend at the National Geographic Adventure in Travel show in Washington DC this past weekend.
I hope you made note of the new design of www.outerbanksblue.com. In our constant effort to be the vacation rental company of choice on the Outer Banks we launched our new design on Monday, February 16th. In response to customer comments and suggestions there are lots of changes can be found on the site including better search parameters, a more clear presentation of available weeks on individual homes, better organization of guest comments, more obvious integration of Google Maps locations on our homes, and just a new overall feel of the site.
This week on Memory Monday we reflect on another big event that occurred on the Outer Banks in 2008. The release of the major motion picture “Nights in Rodanthe.”
Well anyone who knows me knows I enjoy the restaurants of the Outer Banks as much as anyone, and so excitement is building as we are all awaiting the “Outer Banks Taste of The Beach.” A huge success in previous years, the Outer Banks Restaurant Association, of which Outer Banks Blue Realty is a proud affiliate member, is expanding the event this year to four full days of Outer Banks Food and Fun!
I saw this online and I thought you would like to see photos from last June’s Outer Banks trip to Corolla Light Resort and Trade Winds.

For 2009 Outer Banks Blue will be running a contest for the best entries onto our blog by our rental guests called “Memory Monday.” We know that you enjoy your time on the Outer Banks, and judging from our photo gallery, you all love to show us the visual memories of your stay on the Outer Banks. We can only imagine that when you return home from your vacation that on the Monday after your stay you are probably still nostalgic about your stay, and may even thumb through your photos to have a smile and a warm thought about your time away! We want to be a part of those memories!
Today’s submission is our first from one of our guests. Lyn Pontius and family from Midlothian, Virginia stayed with Outer Banks Blue for two weeks in September 2008, and recently showed us in pictures what a quality Outer Banks family vacation looks like. These pictures are what “Memory Mondays” are all about here at Everything Outer Banks. Thanks Lyn and friends for sharing. We look forward to seeing you all again this September! And for everyone else, enjoy our “Memory Monday Winner” for the month of January!
The January edition of the magazine published the results of a survey of the magazine’s readers favorite spots and it is no surprise to anyone here at “Everything Outer Banks” that our favorite beach also turned out to be among the readers’ favorites too. The Outer Banks was specifically mentioned in the magazine as one of the finest family vacation spots in the world.
Its Monday…”Memory Monday” here at “Everything Outer Banks,” and today I wanted to share a memory that made all Outer Bankers proud in 2008 – The filming and subsequent award for “Best Music Video” in 2008.
