Life Lately: The Outer Banks Slightly Off Season

We just returned from a little late summer getaway with friends in Southern Shores, North Carolina. I really like “off season.”

No traffic. Quiet beaches for morning runs. Can’t you just feel that breeze off the water? It was just about 70 degrees each morning.

We took long morning walks along Duck Rd. and got iced coffee and donuts.

Lilly napped in my arms on the beach while I sipped blueberry beerwatching Austin and Nick play in the sand and waves.

We ate fresh halibut, calamari and the best fried shrimp basket I’ve ever had.

We had pina coladas, fluffy coconut and banana pie and crusty french bread with soft triple cream brie, midnight moon goat cheese and strawberry jalapeno jam.

Oh yes. We indulged.

We splashed. We cannon balled. We hot tubbed.

We star gazed and watched the pool lights turn colors.

We saw sunsets and lighthouses and mini golf and go karts.

We sipped fancy whisky and played Cards Against Humanity and Monopoly when the kids slept and laughed until our faces hurt.

Can a slightly off season, long weekend getaway get any better than that?

See you next year OBX. We miss you already.
