One of the most beautiful, untouched parts of the Outer Banks are at the border of North Carolina and Virginia.
It was 38 degrees out this morning. Mom and Dad are enjoying the Outer Banks right now, wish we were there too…
These are some photos of the Outer Banks of North Carolina from December, 2012. They portray just a small piece of the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy to the east coast of the United States.
Winter can be a difficult time for Northerners. The days grow short. The nights grow long. Frost, and subsequently, snow, appears on your car in the morning.
Winter is also one of my favorite times to visit the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It’s a little bit warmer than it is up north, and the vibe is perfect for anyone looking to get some peace and quiet. Even during the holiday season, you will rarely find anyone visiting the small towns, and few locals live on Hatteras Island permanently.
On the way back from visiting family last week in Virginia Beach, we stopped by Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. It’s a fantastic detour for anyone driving along I-95 or I-81.
On your way up to the Beacon area, don’t forget to enjoy the scenery as you go.
