Happy Birthday Marines!
Last week I happened to be travelling in Florida and was waiting for my plane in Orlando while reading a book. I was startled to hear a gate agent at Southwest airlines yell a “yahoo” and started applauding. Looking up I saw a group of young Marines walking through the concourse in full gear. Her appreciation for their service soon spread like wildfire and within 30 seconds nearly every passenger in the area was on their feet and applauding the service of these young men. It was quite a scene.

What you may not realize is that the Outer Banks of NC offers some super-cool kids’ activities not found elsewhere.
