Remember When I Asked Your Advice

by Kay~Kacey on 9/14/2009

Remember? I asked your advice about vacationing in The Outer Banks?  Well, thank you for all the hints and advice about the different areas. Guess where we are right this very minute?


Ah, yes. We rented a place on Hatteras Island, a bit south of Avon. A quieter part of OBX. We like that. A. Lot.


Why, yes…that is how many people we see on the beach today, why do you ask?? :love:


We rented this house, which is a bit, just a tad, overkill for just SuperGuy and I. :dance:

We wanted a house right on the beach, and there aren’t such things as small cottages on the beach in this area. BTW, hint…rent in off season! We can spend more in downtown Chicago for a weekend than a week’s rental off season in this area of OBX!

The weather has been wonderful. Sunny. About 80.


We have our own little walkway over the dunes to the beach. The totally not crowded beach. Oh, I already mentioned that!

Well, I’ll regale you later with stories from the road trip out here. Trips with SuperGuy are always…um…interesting.

To those males left at home? House watching? I know you’re having parties on the back patio and poker parties at the house. Everything better look so picked up and just how I left it!

More OBX tomorrow!

Lucky you!
I’ve heard it is a beautiful place, but I’ve never been there.
AND I LIVE IN SC! Go figure.

Great sand and surf pictures!

I love the outer banks. Your pictures are breath taking, especially the “no one on the beach” part.

Simply gorgeous! Hope you two have lots of fun…in all the rooms! :love:

That is beautiful! Have fun!

WOW! Is that ever beautiful. I really miss the beach.

Those pictures are amazing, Kacey! You ought to be a professional photographer. *g*

Wow- I’m so jealous!! But you guys deserve it. Have a wonderful time. Looking forward to the stories, and the pictures!!

Was this house in a movie with Richard greer? It looks so like it.
Beautiful spot…hope you can find each other in that much house! LOL

Kacey September 14, 2009 at 12:30 pm

It does look like that Nights in Rodanthe (sp?) movie, doesn’t it? I think that actual house is in Waves, NC.

I don’t have to search the house for SuperGuy…he’s always on the beach fishing… :mrgreen: We don’t even use the bottom floor. Just the main floor with the kitchen and great room, then upstairs we have our bedroom with a great view of the ocean and that wonderful deck overlooking the sea.

Beautiful! I want to be there today!! I’m going to Boston for my fun soon, but this looks so amazing. I’ll have to look into it for my hubby and I. He’s not easy to drag away from home, but I can try. Enjoy your time away!!

Needless to tell you two to have a blast! :love2:

Kate September 14, 2009 at 5:29 pm

Oh, Lord I love it there, Kacey! The beach looks different since Isabel came through in 2003 and I’m glad to see that the dune life is coming back. Absolutely gorgeous!!

You are going to do Ocracoke for a day, right?!! Oh, you must!! Rent bikes when you get there. They have them at the Slushy Stand at the end of the highway. And you will love the beer selection at Howard’s Pub. Sit on the very top deck. It’s fun!!

I am so jealous!! Are you in Buxton? Or Frisco? Don’t tell me on the internet.

Wow that looks great. We went to Holden Beach N.C. this summer. It was prime season and the beach was not crowded at all!! Loved it so much. But I looked into the Outer Banks & I would like to go there too. Have fun. We are in Tampa right now & walked on the beach in Clearwater last night & it was gorgeous.
