Let the sun shine!What else do you do on a rainy day on the OBX!?Cannonball!!!!Thanks Rhonda for sharing your photos and your memories.   As cold and nasty as today’s weather is on the Outer Banks it is just what we need to give us a pick up and make us look forward to this summer!Keep in mind we look for new photos from our guests every week to be posted here on Memory Monday.   We post each picture we get (sometimes it takes a few months before we can get around to your photos), and each month we randomly select a winner for that month to receive a $100 discount on this year’s rental with Outer Banks Blue!All the best from the beach!By Tim Cafferty, President, Outer Banks Blue Realty Services

    Outer Banks Family Getaways

    This week’s Memory Monday submission comes to us from The Sinnott and Klingbeil family of Westerville, Ohio who stayed with Outer Banks Blue in August of 2010 at the property “Gem of The Ocean” in the Pine Island subdivision in Corolla.

    We really enjoyed these pictures of the family having fun in their own way, we especially like the action shots of the pool, and of course the family portrait on the beach!

    Thanks to Bridgett Klingbeil for providing these great shots of a wonderful family getaway. We look forward to serving you again soon!
