John and I had a great week in the Outer Banks and tomorrow it's back to the grind. When I told my coworkers where I was going, lots of them had never heard of the Outer Banks. I should have just asked if they had seen those "OBX" stickers on the back of SUVs.
The beach was full of cute dogs like this one to remind us that Maddie was stuck in the kennel. Poor thing. Can't wait to see her tomorrow though!
My dad managed to capture our first walk down the beach when we arrived. It was nice to have the sand between my toes. The cool beaches in California are usually better experienced with a sweatshirt and tennis shoes.
Throughout the course of the week there were many toes washed at this hose. You would think that by the end of the week I would have gotten proficient enough to actually get all the sand off by the time I crawled into bed. Maybe I need another week of practice...
This is my "Do not disturb me, I'm reading The Passage" look.
My dad took pictures of the sunrise almost every day, but this is the only one I actually saw. Nothing like a view of the ocean sunrise to make it worth waking up for.
Later this week I'll post about John's hang gliding experience and our beach family photoshoot. One of these days I'll post about food too.
