Greetings again from the sunny Outer Banks.  We had a remarkably warm February and evidently we are still paying the price for that as it has been much cooler than we like so far this March.    Spring is set to arrive this week so we are sure that means warmer weather will be here on a regular basis, and of course we have Easter less than two weeks away now so we all are ready for some beach time.  Speaking of beach time Sandy Zygmont recently stayed with Outer Banks Blue and shared a number of photo memories with us that we are posting today on Memory Monday.
