Having Fun at “No Wake Zone”Many of our vacation rental properties here on the Outer Banks have very creative names that have been given the property by the homeowner. One of our most creative is “No Wake Zone” in Nags Head, and that is where Linda Martin of Centreville, Virginia stayed with Outer Banks Blue last August. Linda sends us two pictures worthy of a look.
