Keeping the Home Fires Burning: Memory Monday November 17, 2014.

Keeping the Home fires BurningThis week’s Memory Monday photo submission comes to us from Shelley McIntyre of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania who stayed with Outer Banks Blue this past summer in the property “The Nags Header.”Shelley and her family hail from all over the country with the states of Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, New York, and Florida, but they like calling the Outer Banks home for a vacation each summer with Blue. This year one of the highlights of the trip was the gents of the crew building a fire pit on the beach (proper permits received from the town of course) and spending the evening together as a family making s’mores.

Nice night for a fire on the beach!

Shelly has already got her oceanfront getaway reserved for next summer’s family reunion in the property “Twisted Fish.”We look forward to serving the McIntyre extended family again next summer!All the best from the beach!By Tim Cafferty, President, Outer Banks Blue Realty Services

Surfing the Outer Banks: A Sport for (Almost) Every Season

Did you know that Outer Banks beaches are famous among surfing enthusiasts? You don’t have to go all the way to Hawaii, California, Indonesia—or even Australia—to catch great waves. We have them right here off the North Carolina shore.A wonderful set of unique natural attributes combines to provide the swells necessary for excellent surfing, including:

  • the meeting of the Gulf Stream, coastal waters and Labrador Current
  • occasional seasonal stormy conditions
  • a narrow continental shelf that boosts great surfing waves
  • a low-lying topography that’s exposed to the elements 

These are a recipe for surf-worthy waves. In addition to these ideal characteristics, here are some of the perks of surfing the Outer Banks.
