Surfing in the Outer Banks

This week’s Memory Monday submission comes to us from Diana L. Kunselman of Rimersburg, Pennsylvania who stayed with Outer Banks Blue over Memorial Day week in Nags Head at the property “Whitman’s Sampler.” Tropical storm Beryl rolled through the Outer Banks during her stay and as you can see in the attached photo of her fellow vacationers they made the most of the opportunity by doing some “Redneck surfing” as she termed it. Even when a storm is evident the Atlantic ocean can still be a beautiful picture as evidenced in this second photo. The power of the sea really comes through in this shot. All the best from the beach! READ MORE

Thumbs up to our OBX Family Vacation

This week’s Memory Monday Photo submission comes to us from Tanya Reimer of Beamsville, Ontario, Canada who recently stayed with Outer Banks Blue at the property “Beach House on The Moon” in Duck. Tanya shares this photo which symbolizes the feeling of the entire Outer Banks Blue staff today…..”Thumbs up! Summer is here!” Today, Memorial Day, marks the official start of the summer season here on the Outer Banks. Our roads are a bit busier, the beach has a few more people laying on it today, and the sun seems to be just a little bit hotter. Even though we still have a few days left in May we are all in a summer mind set here on the Outer Banks, and we look forward to seeing you here soon! As Tanya would say “Thumbs up” for an Outer Banks Blue vacation! All the best from the beach! READ MORE

Family Vacation in the Outer Banks

This week’s Memory Monday photo submission comes to us from Diane Holzworth of Goldboro, North Carolina who recently stayed with Outer Banks Blue and snapped this picture of her daughter and son in law on the beach. “It was a relaxing time for me, my husband, daughter and son in law. We spent a fantastic week in an Outer Banks Blue rental. We are all anxiously awaiting our first grandchild in a few weeks. This picture, taken on the beach behind our rental house, was a lovely keepsake at our week at the beach.” Thanks for sharing Diane, and congratulations on becoming a grandmother! All the best from the beach! READ MORE

Wild Horses in the Outer Banks

This week’s Memory Monday submission comes to us from Joanna Nunnally of Richmond, Virginia who stayed with Outer Banks Blue last July in the property “Double Anchor” (# VOH004). Double Anchor is a very unique property that is literally the last property you come to in Corolla before the beach access and the property that is set aside as a reserve (State Park) where the Corolla Wild Horses roam. These pictures are fantastic and give a great representation of a complete Outer Banks vacation that Joanna and her family experienced while they were here last summer! Joanna tells us “We had a blast and we can’t wait for our return trip in July….83 days to go!” We can’t wait to have you back Joanna, and thanks for your photo memories of your trip! All the best from the beach!

Monday Memory of a Friend


This week’s Memory Monday submission will have a different approach if you can indulge me. The idea of Memory Monday was to have folks take a look at someone else’s vacation pictures and breathe deeply and for a few moments take a mental vacation then think what a great spot the Outer Banks is for us all.

Starting the New Year off Right

What a great way to start the new year of “Memory Monday” photos with a picture of these two cuties from this past summer. This is Caysie Riker and Brianna Willett who are cousins and enjoyed their summer vacation last year in Corolla with their grandmother who submitted these photos. Special thanks to grandma (aka Kathy Riker of Apex, North Carolina) who caught these great photos and sent them in to us to share! All the best from the beach!
