Good day from the OBX! It is a very warm, but a little wet day here at the Outer Banks today. We had record setting temperatures yesterday (74 degrees is February!), and it really makes us look forward to the arrival of spring. Today’s Memory Monday photo gives us a good example of two other types of weather we experience. Lighthouse weather and hurricane weather.
Good Monday morning from the cool Outer Banks. We hope you were satisfied with the results of the Super Bowl last night and looking forward to a great day. Sorry to the Patriots fans, but we are sure Philly fans are flying high today. What a great game if you did not have a rooting interest. We know that doesn’t soften the blow for Pats fans, but it was entertaining. For whatever reason, and in one of the worst transitions…..we thought it would be a great day to share pictures of a wedding on the beach!. Sorry, that was really bad.
We are all a little bit excited around here because this week marks the official end to the Hurricane season (11/30 is the official end to the season). This has been one heck of a year in terms of named storms and we were very fortunate to have gotten through the storm season unscathed. We had one minor scare in September, but overall the Outer Banks did very well in 2017 in terms of named storms, but we are glad to see it go.
This week’s Memory Monday photo submission is a bit of a different twist. Instead of the typical sunrise over the ocean, today we bring you a moon rise.
Good morning. Usually you see in this space a weekly posting of a photo from a guest that provides great memories of their stay on the Outer Banks. We beg your forgiveness today if we do a little self promotion and pass along thanks as “Everything Outer Banks” was named to a prestigious list this past week. Feedspot named “Everything Outer Banks” as one of the top 20 Blogs in the Vacation Rental Management Industry among thousands that are currently active!
Greetings from the Outer Banks on this Memory Monday. We start your Monday off with a cute kid on the beach this week.
Keep a good thought for us this week as we all wait and watch anxiously for the passing of Hurricane Jose. Forecasts take the big boy storm off of our coast by a few hundred miles, but we are experiencing some clouds, breezy conditions and some off and on rain today. Enough weather to chase everyone off of the beach and for the red flags to be flying on the dunes today warning swimmers to stay out of the water. Let’s hoe this is as bad as it gets with regard to the weather this week.
Word is out that the Outer Banks are one of the best places in the United States for a relaxing vacation: U.S. News just named the Outer Banks as the 4th Best “Relaxing Getaway in the U.S.” With beautiful weather, pristine beaches, delicious food, and fun activities, the Outer Banks have everything you need for a stress-free getaway.
Greetings from a warm and sunny Outer Banks! Today is a glorious day in the area and follows one of the nicest weekends we’ve had in February in a very long time. The temperatures actually reached into the mid-70’s on Saturday, and more fun is in store this week as we have temperatures predicated to be at least 60 degrees every day this week!
Jockey’s Ridge Sunset
The Outer Banks offers so many beautiful natural landscapes, but one of the highlights of the area is to go to Jockey’s Ridge State Park in Nags Head, climb the largest living sand dune on the east coast, and turn to your right and watch the sunset over the Roanoke Sound.
