Our Outer Banks 2013 Vacation: Day 1

Our first full day at the Outer Banks was on Sunday, September 15.  It was a lazy Sunday spent reading, eating and relaxing with our friends.  We did get a little exercise, though.  In the afternoon Bob and I went for a walk on South Nags Head beach.

P9152376 4x6We enjoyed walking close to the water’s edge, allowing the waves to cover our feet.  The water felt very refreshing.

P9152389 4x6One fisherman proudly held up a puppy drum fish that he had caught.

We saw a young father building a sand tractor.

We walked on the beach as far as the houses nearest to the ocean waters in the second photograph displayed above.

P9152377 4x6The houses located nearest the ocean waters are condemned.  We walked out to these houses last year, during our vacation in the Outer Banks.

It surprised me that the houses still stand.

    You look like you are enjoying yourself in that first photo Linda. Great photos, although sad about the homes that have to be demolished.

    Linda, walking on the beach is one of my favorite things to do! The houses are an amazing sight, they should have never been allowed to build so close to the ocean. Wonderful photos.

    We have also been to the Outer Banks a couple of road trips ago, Linda, and it was also a wonderful trip with great weather similar to what you enjoyed. Sad to see the change in those homes from nature’s wrath. I always think of the movie Nights in Rodanthe and the lone home on the beach. I believe I read somewhere that it had also been destroyed. Your photos reminded me of the film.

      The house in the movie Nights in Rodanthe has not been destroyed, Beatrice. The house was purchased by someone who was a fan of the movie, moved to a higher location and restored so that it looks like it did in the movie. I will share a picture of the house in a later post.
