OBX 2011

Well, my classic end-of-the-summer week spent in one of my favorite places on earth ended unexpectedly early this year because of Hurricane Irene.
We had just finished dinner on our fifth night in paradise, when we got a message that we needed to begin evacuating our house.
But hello?! We were about to play Taboo?!
We sat together, stunned and wondering if this was actually happening.
But after a healthy dose of skepticism about safety and meteorologists, we decided we better error on the side of staying alive, and got to packing. 
But oh, how we squeezed in a whole week's worth of fun into our 5 days there.
We hiked Jockey Ridge dunes, spent hours at the beach, celebrated my cousin's departure to college, played copious amounts of Bocci ball, had a crab leg feast, relaxed by the pool, fed the seagulls, and laughed 'til our stomachs hurt.
but all this goes without saying~
this is life in the Outer Banks.
Not even a hurricane could spoil our vacation.
It was, and always will be, my favorite place to salute 
sweet summertime.

*Thank you to Big Mama, who avoids the camera like the plague but is at the heart of this and every adventure. 
You outdid yourself again. xo
