Outer Banks North Carolina
So we have gone to the Outer Banks in the past, I think I have even written a blog about in the past. Anyhow we stayed in this beautiful and large house that some friends offered us for a week, and when we got a phone call with them offering us the house again… well we couldn’t refuse. So we packed our bags and rented a vehicle from a National Rental Car at the local airport. We decided to rent a Buick LaCrosse because we hadn’t even road in one, and knowing how much cars we rent, that’s a huge surprise.
Driving up to North Carolina was easy, the LaCrosse purred like cat, smooth as can be. Now the Outer Banks are a string of Islands of the east coast of North Carolina. The Islands are about one mile thick and maybe twenty long. So on one side you have the beautiful North Atlantic, and on the other you have the calm bay. When we arrived in the middle of the night we got into the house in no time, and decided we would just sleep and decide what to do in the morning.
We almost had forgotten how beautiful this house is, there is a large tower on one corner of the house that goes up about four stories. At the top of it is a small dining room, the perfect place to see everything on the island, including the sunrise and sunset. The beaches were crystal clear; I mean white sand and clear water… just perfect. My wife was taking picture after picture and all I could think about was fishing. Every time a large wave would rise up you could see the glimmer of bait fish swimming in the surf… and where’s there’s bait fish larger fish are sure to follow. We ended up eating in one of those beachside shacks you always see in the movies. Burgers and fries on a deck that overlooks the water.
The Outer Banks really isn’t home to large attractions or night life like most vacation destinations. It’s just a relaxing getaway, a paradise for us old people. This beautiful house just takes the cake when it comes to relaxing, it’s a full on resort and you will probably be hearing about another vacation to this area from us if the vacation presents itself.
