Good morning from a sunny and warm Outer Banks! Today is a special day on the Outer Banks, and for us here at Outer Banks Blue as we celebrate the 115th anniversary of man’s first powered flight at the Wright Brother’s Memorial in Kill Devil Hills.
Good morning from a cool and blustery Outer Banks. Winds have been very strong for the last two days with steady northeast gales at 25 to 35 miles per hour with gusts over 55 miles per hour. Schools are on a 3 hour delay today (Monday) as we hope for better days ahead and this winter storm Diego heading off the coast and away from our paradise.
Three towns on the Outer Banks are sticking to their budgets and not biting on beach nourishment bids that exceeded the amount of money on hand which means beach nourishment is on hold for another year.
Memory Monday 6/17/13
Footsteps on the beach
This week’s Memory Monday photo submission comes to us from Bill Ward who shares with us an iconic picture from the beach. Who can’t identify with the peace and solitude of this beautiful “Memory Monday” photo?
“I Sea It”
When you think of a vacation, what comes to mind? Oh yeah we remember, “waiting in line in an office for a key to the house, only to unpack your linens to make the bed; to scramble to find toilet paper and paper towels for using the restroom after a long ride to your destination”, right?…
This week’s Memory Monday submission comes to us from Kathy Scott who stayed with Outer Banks Blue this past Christmas.
There’s some great shots here of Porpoise swimming down the beach in the early morning, some pristine beach pics, and as Kathy says “what is a trip to the Outer Banks without stopping at Dennis Anderson’s Grave Digger Monster Truck in Currituck.” Dennis is a world class monster truck driver and his Grave Digger is one of the most famous vehicles in the country. The next time you come to the OBX take a stop by and see how you measure up against those monster truck tires!
Another Monday, and another great Memory from this past summer on the Outer Banks to pass along. This week’s Memory Monday photo submission comes to us from Mallory Fuller of Asheville, North Carolina. For those of you that don’t know Asheville is in the Mountains of North Carolina, so we are sure the cold temperatures and snow of late have her thinking about her vacation with Outer Banks Blue last July in the property “Orion’s Landing” in Kill Devil Hills.
