The Outer Banks

A few photo's from our last hoorah of the season.
Our timing was impeccable. Hurricane Irene is barreling up the coastline headed for OBX. Pray that another weather system pushes Irene off the coast or that it greatly decreases in strength.
A morning walk on the beach.

A ghost crab.


Feeding the seagulls.

Family photo op. I need to start training for an upcoming 5k. Seeing myself in photo's isn't always fun.

Fun in the waves and on the sand.

We were privileged to see dolphins heading up the coastline each morning, watch pelicans dive into the sea for their sustenance, people horseback riding along the beach, and crabs scurrying from sand hole to sand hole.

A few restaurants that I can recommend in the area would be "Tale of A Whale", "La Cabana", & "Stack 'Em High". All three of them had great food and great service.

We can't wait to go back. It's becoming a favorite family vacation spot.

Thanks for stopping by Blue Sky Confections!
