Home Again

Our beach trip is over but that hasn't kept me from thinking back on all the fun we had. It was a wonderful week! The weather was perfect. The beaches were not crowded at all since all the local kids were back in school. We had our pick of just about any spot we wanted. The beach house we stayed in was awesome. It was three levels, had five bedrooms, and several bathrooms. The house next door had a cool hammock chair but I was in love with our two porch swings. There were also many things to do. There was shuffle board, basketball, volleyball, an outdoor pool, bike rentals, several neat little shops, and the Currituck Lighthouse was nearby. Down the road a few miles, we had access to an indoor pool, a gym, racquetball, and miniature golf. The indoor pool came in handy one day when it rained.

We all managed to avoid getting terrible sunburns but we used almost a whole bottle of SPF 50 sunscreen. Caroline got at least 100 more freckles. LOL! I'm working on getting our photos downloaded and will start sharing a few of those over the next few days. If you've never been to the Outer Banks, you owe it to yourself to go. Go right after Labor Day as rates are lower and it's not overcrowded. We stayed in Corolla and I can't say enough about it.
