Day at The Beach!

We hope you are enjoying this Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.   Whenever there is a holiday at the beach we think of heading to the beach, and indeed this week’s Memory Monday Photo submission reminds us of that. Loreal Hooten provides this week’s pictures of a day at the beach in the “Four Wheel Drive Territory” of the northern Outer Banks.   As anyone who has been there knows where the pavement ends in Corolla the fun on the beach begins as there is another 12 miles of beach only accessible with four wheel drive vehicles. Loreal’s photos reminds us of that area and a fun day her family had there.
