The Start of a Week at the Outer Banks

5 Aug

We left on Sunday morning for a week vacation at Nags Head. Four adults and one 3 year old required two cars, pounds of stuff and 5 stops along the way. However, traffic was light and we checked in with ease. Miss H loved our ‘vacation home’ and loved the beach even more. The kid who usually is sensitive to sand, seemed to forget about her previous dislike for the stuff and was rolling in it on the first day.

Also, we introduced Kerry’s dad to the beach and the power of the Atlantic Ocean. After a little tumble in the beginning, he became a pro in the waves, water and sand by day two. Mom was with us too and she taught Miss H to build sand castles, hunt for shells and to enjoy walking in the surf.  Since Miss H was over her dislike for the sand, we spent our first morning at Jockey’s Ridge.

And, she had a blast climbing to the top and running to the bottom.

If you look really close, you can see Miss H running all the way down….

We almost had Kerry’s dad convinced to go hang gliding.

We ended Monday with a yummy shrimp and seafood dinner on the water. I will continue to post pictures tomorrow.
