A Week On The Outer Banks, NC

We spent last week in Nags Head, NC on the Outer Banks. It rained and was cold a few days but it was nice, sunny and breezy a few other days. From my viewpoint, everyone left satisfied. A few of the group had to leave Friday even though checkout was Saturday. The house felt really empty Saturday morning. Here are a few pictures from the trip.

This is the house we stayed in on the beach.

The name of the house is "MUCHO Dinero" and by the middle of summer it costs a lot to stay there. I think we had the last week of off-season rates.

This is the Bodie Lighthouse, it was just a few miles down the road from where we stayed. The weather looks just like the picture shows except for the cold blowing wind that day.

Scattered all around the Outer Banks are various winged-horses painted or decorated in various combinations. Here are a few examples we saw.

Here is another one.

And a third.

We had lots n lots of good food. This picture shows burgers and brats.

These are caribou steaks, cooked and served by the mighty hunter.

And this would be barbecued chicken coming down the home stretch, yummy yummy.

We had desserts like this in the evening and fruit cups every morning.

The Elizabeth II, a replica of the ship Elizabeth who brought the English to the Outer Banks in 1585. There is also a replica settlemnt to show how these folks lived while here in 1585. All who visited this with me enjoyed themselves.

From our rental, this was the gateway to the beach. Somedays it was sunny and nice, other days it was not but we enjoyed metal detecting, hunting sea shells, surf fishing and running into and out of the waves.

This is the beach when it was nice and sunny.
