Johnny and I have wanted to go down to the Outer Banks
of North Carolina for all of the St Patricks festivities but with it being
in March, we just always had so much going on with birthdays and such. And
let's add in that he works almost every weekend!!
So this year we decided to just do it. We headed down there on Friday
morning and stayed until Monday. The weather wasn't the best on Friday
and Saturday but who cares.....it's the beach! We went shopping at the
outlet mall, went thrift store shopping and went to some of our
favorite bars. We did so much on Saturday we had to go back to our
hotel room and take a nap then head back out.....haha!!
Then the weather really cleared up and Sunday, the day of the parade,
was beautiful. The parade route was one mile long and it was probably
3 and 4 people deep. The parade lasted almost 2 1/2 hours!!
Of course a parade in OBX means party time so
everyone is along the road with their coolers of cold beer!!
It was a lot of fun and we'll definitely go back next year.
here's the view from our room.....beautiful
this picture really does not do this rainbow justice.....it was the most brilliant rainbow I had ever seen. It was so bright, you can see the difference in the sky inside of the rainbow.....then outside of it a little darker.
After the parade we walked over to one of our favorite bars... Tortuga's
after awhile these 2 guys walked in with a light up toilet
haha....not sure what that was bout but they were having fun!
we walked out on the beach for a very short time.....it wasn't that cold but
I was freezing. Well, turns out I was starting to get sick so I guess I
had a small fever. Even back in the room, I just couldn't get warm.
and then this is the saddest picture ever.....us leaving the OBX
I am always sad when we have to leave.
