Ah ... the good old days with memories of romantic walks at night on the beach ... moonlight shining across the water ... walking in the surf ... being chased by a wave ... or a ghost crab.
Remember your first Outer Banks visit when you parked your car and hurried to the beach for that first sight of the Atlantic Ocean ... feeling the air blowing your hair ... smelling the salt air ... hearing the cry of sea gulls and watching the flying formation of the brown pelicans.
Wasn't that outdoor shower fabulous on a hot summer day! The kids loved chasing the foam ... splashing in the water ... building sand castles. Remember wandering how such a little body could be covered in so much sand.
Whether you chose one of the hotels/motels, or a summer cottage, visiting the Outer Banks always created such relaxing memories. In addition to the beach and all its treasures, there were the restaurants offering the freshest of daily catches, the shops with mementos for all, and the many attractions.
You could imagine watching Wilbur and Orville testing their designs for flight trials, you could visit the old life saving station, climb a lighthouse, fish from a pier or surf, or simply sit in a rocker and watch the day go by.
