Greetings from the Outer Banks on this Christmas Eve! It is a beautiful Monday morning here on the Outer Banks. I had a refreshing walk on the beach this morning as the sun was rising over the Atlantic ocean and what is left of the cold moon setting in the northwestern sky. As my dog and I were exploring the beach for some treasures, we saw a pod of dolphins passing by making small waves in the otherwise calm ocean.
Good morning from a cool and blustery Outer Banks. Winds have been very strong for the last two days with steady northeast gales at 25 to 35 miles per hour with gusts over 55 miles per hour. Schools are on a 3 hour delay today (Monday) as we hope for better days ahead and this winter storm Diego heading off the coast and away from our paradise.
Greetings from the Outer Banks on a clear and cooler Monday morning. Fall is definitely in the air as the nighttime temps have dived down into the low 60’s and this past week we had high temps in the 70’s. A great time of year to have a wedding, and so we bring you this week a collection of engagement pictures we’ve received over the past several months.
It was announced this week that access to and from the Outer Banks will be more difficult this winter.The North Carolina Department of Transportation announced in a press release this week one of the two bridges that serves as the main connection to the Outer Banks will be closed for a period of 8 months beginning in Mid-September of this year and continuing until Mid-May of 2014.

Go Fly A Kite!
It is a rainy Monday here on the Outer Banks and we need something to brighten our day. So today’s Memory Monday photo submission comes to us from Kasey Woodrum who sent along this picture of her daughter flying a kite on the beach on Hatteras Island earlier this year.
The Outer Banks is the place to be this July 4th! The morning begins with an exciting parade in the heart of Duck, NC. Get there early, park, and walk to get a Duck Donut and have your beach buckets ready for candy & goodies! If you are staying in Duck, just pack up the stroller or wagon and make your way to the perfect spot for your family! The parade is followed by a day of celebration together with live music and refreshments.

Nags Head Memories
This week’s Memory Monday guest photo submission comes to use from Jan Thruston of Midlothian, Virginia who rented “Tranquility Base” in South Nags Head last September.
Families have been traveling for vacations on the Outer Banks for over 100 years!
For many years, the Outer Banks has been a hot spot for historic travel because of the battles fought on the sand, the challenges won in the air, and the memories made beyond the dunes. When you are counting down and awaiting your next steps on the sand, make sure to take photos and share your memories with the rest of the world! It is amazing to think of how much progress was made in such a small area in the past 100 years as far as technology and vacation luxuries go, imagine what might change in the next 100 years?
