Vacationing on the Outer Banks, NC, October 5-12, 2013

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!

  1. I am from Eastern North Carolina and I love the Outer Banks, not that I’m biased, but I do believe we have some of the most beautiful beaches on the east coast in part because they aren’t overcrowded and one can truly relax when vacationing.

    1. Thanks for your comment and for checking out my blog. I would definitely agree with you that we do have some of the most beautiful beaches on the east coast!
