Day 8 and this was the only day we woke to overcast skies
and maybe a little drizzle......well, certainly enough to keep us
But the clouds moved out and bam.....another beautiful day in paradise.
One of our favorite places in the Outer Banks is just a little island
on the sound side called Collington. It's just a small fishing village.
they have a grocery store, gas station, 2 seafood places, a pizza joint and a really nice restaurant........and that's about it.
But we just love it.
We had heard that it got hit pretty hard during Hurricane Irene
so we decided to ride over and check it out.
There was just so much flooding and the smells of mildew and mold,
the smells of flooding.....it was awful.
I just didn't even have it in me to take pictures, the damage was just
We headed back to the condo and hung out at the beach.
and look......Johnny took some pics of me...very rare indeed!!
Later in the day our friends Tim and Susan arrived
We all went out to dinner at the Red Drum...yum!
I had crab legs, shrimp and clams...def needed to walk the next day!
