Our Outer Banks 2013 Vacation: Day 3

Bob and I spent Tuesday, September 17, in Nags Head, at the beach house.  It was a very windy day.

I enjoyed watching the waves crashing on the beach.

The strong winds blew the sand onto our beach access.

I took a chance with my camera, taking photographs outside with the wind and blowing sand.  I got lucky, though.  The sand wasn’t blowing at me in the morning hours, and I was able to capture some photographs and video from the beach access.   Later in the day, the sand was blowing so badly that I didn’t go anywhere near the beach with my camera.

    Lovely shots, Linda! I love the patterns in the sand and the moon shot. And the last sunset is gorgeous. Great post, have a happy weekend!

    Cameras, sand and water don’t miss well together…I recently bought a waterproof digital for our Niagara Falls trip vs buying several disposables…while it doesn’t have the zoom power of my larger digital, it was nice to know that having it exposed while riding the Maid of the Mist would not damage it.

    Whoops, forgot to add, Linda, that I enjoyed your beach photos here and of Ocracoke Island which we visited a couple of years ago. Glad your camera gear was OK too.
