Two Weeks Later…

Packing a picnic dinner, swimming, paddle boarding, sunsets and good family fun.

Ferry rides to the island for wild horses and pelican crowded lunches…

Beating the mid-day heat with beers, conch fritters and tuna at Tortugas Lie, best on OBX…

The universe worked some magic and viola, we are still here. My sea legs are pruned and loving it! Heading home tomorrow for some dry mountain air but happy to have been here for so long! (This also explains my absence!)

We have come here for 4 summers in a row and we still have tons to explore. Pea Island is on the top of our list for paddle boarding, it is a bird watchers paradise. Traditionally, we stay in the village of Hatteras on Hatteras Island but opted to try Rodanthe (yes, like the movie, “Nights in Rodanthe”). The surf for surf kayaking, or any surf for that matter, is much better here and if the waves are not making the cut  (which even on a “small day” it is hardly the case) you can hop over to the sound for some killer kite boarding or wind surfing. I have not tried either but while swimming in the sound yesterday it was like being at the circus of wind surfer’s. They were making laps. A large group from Quebec are down here on the OBX specifically for the world class wind surfing…

Any who, it is wonderful. I have a deep connection and love for this place. We will be back!
