nags head in the outer banks of north carolina

We arrived in the Outer Banks of North Carolina in early June. The east coast was already warmer than it was back at our home in southern Arizona, as much as ten degrees warmer.

I had visited the Outer Banks as a child with my family, I remember staying at a beach front cottage my parents had rented for a couple weeks. Unfortunately I don’t remember a lot about the trip, after all it was over fifty years ago. I’m sure there have been many changes to the area since my first visit making it impossible to recognize any landmarks I may have remembered anyway.

One thing is certain, Nags Head and the Outer Banks are just as beautiful as I remember. Join me as I take a stroll down memory lane making new memories along the way…

Didn’t see any alligators.
No Alligators seen either.
Looking a little crowded.
Over fifty years since I was here with my family.
I love national seashores, usually there’s no one else on the beach.
No reservations, we just showed up and got a space available campsite.
Our campsite, $35 per night for electric and water hookups.

We had to board a ferry to get to the next lighthouse on Ocracoke Island.
A simple process, just needed to follow instructions.
This was the first time we have put our Tiny House on a ferry, But it won’t be the last!
MaryAnn is excited about our adventures in the Outer Banks. By the way, the ferry to Ocracoke Island is free.
