OK, so this post is one of the main reasons why I’ve been backed up and having to do alot of catching up with updating the blog. I was on a much needed vacation last month back in my home state of North Carolina for 10 days, 7 of those days were spent on the beautiful chain of islands called the Outer Banks or the OBX. My family and I used to visit here a long weekend each September or October as a kid, and this was my first visit back over 20 years.
Unfortunately thanks to our idiot politicians in Washington, the government shutdown was happening, so I wasnt able to do alot of the things I wanted to do again from times before. Wright Brothers National Memorial, Cape Hatteras and Bodie Island lighthouses were all closed to name a few. But I did manage to get in some fun time at other places, despite there really not being any real itinerary that needed to be met. Homebase for the week I was there was in Nags Head, NC. I wanted to share a few photos, mostly those having to do with nature and the outdoors. Enjoy!
