OBX Vacation Part 2

Picking up from where I left off in my first post about OBX, the rest of the weekend was overcast, windy, and cool as well.  Red flag flew the entire time, which was okay since we didn’t think we could stand in the water anyway.  My friend Paige came down for part of the time too and put up with Mom and I.  We basically spent our days reading by the pool, walking to the beach to see it, and eating seafood.  I had all of the following types for dinner at some point: scallops, shrimp, crab cakes, salmon, and calamari… and a pulled chicken sandwich, lol.

We played games, worked a puzzle, and just RELAXED.  Monday we thought about leaving, but decided we would drive south to see the OBX we were used to instead.  We drove the length of the beach road, walked on the sand in the national park, saw the Bodie Island light house, and then headed back north.  This was about 35 miles from home.  But it took us maybe 3.5 hours?

We first stopped to play putt-putt at Mutiny Bay, then hit up Miller’s on the sound for lunch (amazing hushpuppies!), then thought we were done… but we stopped for a quick picture of the dunes.  Which turned into an hour-long shopping stop at the Life is Good store.  Oh, then we got Forbes taffy which took a while because we had to pick our flavors!  Gas, to get ready to actually leave, and then finally home (well, our Duck home).

Tuesday we got up and headed home for real, with just a quick stop for some more fresh produce on the way.  And lunch, of course.  It was a great trip and I’m glad we went!  If you want to see pictures, check out my Facebook album.  I was playing with my camera a lot and am REALLY happy with the scenery shots, so enjoy!
