Happy Labor Day from the Outer Banks!

This week’s Memory Monday we want to take a moment to wish everyone a very happy labor day. We hope you enjoy a day off from your work and reflect on a great summer (that we hope included a trip to the Outer Banks and a stay with Outer Banks Blue)!  Today’s picture comes to us from Jessica Wright of Warwick, New York who stayed with Outer Banks Blue this past June in the property “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem!” Judging by the looks of the picture of her 2 1/2 year old son Aubrey, who is enjoying running along Jockey’s Ridge in Nags Head, they picked the correct house! Jessica tells us “This was our first visit to the OBX, but it won’t be our last!”  Thanks Jessica for sharing your photo memories with us!  All the best from the beach!

Happy Labor Day on the Outer Banks at the Beach to Ease Your Mind

I have heard many people say that all of their worries melt away the moment the cross the bridge over to the Outer Banks. “It’s just another mind set”, or “everyone is in vacation mode”, and that is for sure even down to how businesses are operated. You will find a smiling face in an office building here on the Outer Banks with flip flops and a sun dress when stopping by a local realty office. Outer Banks Blue takes pride in being “The Vacation Rental Firm That NEVER Goes On Vacation!” here on the OBX. Michelle Elmore gets out of the office to share a sunny day, the last weekend of the offical “summer season” for 2012 here on the Outer Banks. The high is 82, but the humidity is up compared to recent weeks of cooler weather and rain. The last chance to get your summer tan has come and we hope to see you all out there this weekend!

 Reservations being taken at this time for the remainder of 2012 (including family holidays together at the beach), and the entire year of 2013, so call today 877 248 4823! READ MORE
