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.
Here are some pictures from last December, spent in Salvo, North Carolina.
