Good morning from a beautiful and for the most part back to normal Outer Banks. They last week has been quite a week with Hurricane Florence disrupting everything in the area. Family vacations were interrupted, the area was evacuated, we watched with anxiousness, and are now trying to get back to our regular schedules now that the storm has passed.
Good morning and thanks for stopping by Everything Outer Banks to check out Memory Monday. Each week we provide you photo memories of our guests and they are always great. Some would call them Stellar. That takes us to our title this week as these pictures were brought to us by Kelly Stolar so we have named this week’s blog “Stolar Memories.” Get it?
This week’s Memory Monday photo contest entry comes to us from Rhonda Ross and she shares with us pictures of her granddaughter posing on the Outer Banks.
Greetings from a sunny, hot and beautiful day at the beach. It is just about a perfect Outer Banks day, and we hope you are ready to enjoy a stay with us soon. Today’s Memory Monday photo submission brings us an early morning sign of a good day. Dolphins frolicking in the surf.
Greetings from the Outer Banks on a beautiful Memorial Day. The weather has been perfect for whatever outdoor activities you wanted to do all weekend and the unofficial start of summer has arrived. With all of the fun family summer activities it is easy to forget that this isn’t just a holiday weekend where we get an extra day with our families. This past week a letter to the editor from a veteran put it in great perspective for us here at Everything Outer Banks by saying we should rename this day – Memory day.
We hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day yesterday. Our Mother’s hit the beach yesterday here on the Outer Banks as temperatures were in the 80’s and the sun was out and bright. What a wonderful weekend we had. Great to see our Mom’s and visit with our family. We hope you were able to do the same.
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.
