Corolla Vacation Shots: Memory Monday November 3, 2014.

Corolla Vacation ShotsThis week’s Memory Monday photo submission comes to us from Bobbie Silber of Levittown, Pennsylvania who stayed with Outer Banks Blue in the property “Aurora” in Corolla Light.Bonnie and her group enjoyed several things on their vacation this summer, but Bobbie shares a couple of shots of their favorite memories.

Sunset in Penny’s Hill

One of the favorite things for folks to do is to head north of Corolla in the 4 wheel drive territory of the Outer Banks.   This is the area of the beach with no paved roads, but with lots of adventures. Beautiful wide beaches await visitors and this is the home of the Corolla Wild Horses.

Wild Horses roaming in Carova

We recommend a day trip to Carova when you come to the Outer Banks.  There are several touring companies that can take you to this area with their comfortable vehicles and expert guides.   Corolla Outback Adventures is one of the best.Thanks again to Bobbie for passing along her photo memories.  We look forward to serving you again soon.All the best from the beach!By Tim Cafferty, President, Outer Banks Blue Realty Services
