OBX Vacation 2013
I’ve been on the beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina enjoying a most relaxing vacation with my family. Tomorrow we head home and back to our usual lives.
On a cloudy day we walked on the dunes. This was so pleasant because the sand wasn’t hot and as an added bonus, it was great exercise.
We also spent a lot of time on the beach. Being a wimp, I never completely got in the water.
Mr. SP went on a fun fishing trip with the guys.
We ate out most nighst and hit many of our favorite restaurants. Mama also cooked a few delicious shrimp dinners for us.
Sherman came to the beach with us and had a ball playing in the sand and waves. He had a long walk every morning and night when it was cool.
A highlight of our beach walks for Sherman was meeting other dogs.
Every day he made a new friend.
Sherman mostly splashed in the waves but he did get in a few times.
After a long walk on the beach, a drink sure does taste good.
One evening we went to Manteo for a family picnic. Mama fried a pan full of chicken for the event.
After we ate we either relaxed or took walks around the town.
Sherman took several swims from the local boat ramp.
One evening we took a walk to the Wright Brothers Memorial where there’s a great view.
We tried to take a self portrait at the memorial and Sherman licked me just as Mr. SP snapped the picture. He sure does have a long tongue!!
The highlight of the week was getting to spend time with my niece, Reese. I don’t get to see her often and it was wonderful to see her every day for almost two weeks.
All good things must come to an end, including this fun vacation. Now it’s time to look forward to July 4 festivities.
Sherman sure is getting big Paula and I bet he loved every minute of being at OBX. Looks like everyone was having a wonderful time, thanks for sharing your summer vacation with us.
What a beautiful place to spend your vacation. We live in the mountains of NC and love it there, too! Nothing like the beach in summer though! Great photos!
You live in a great spot! I’d like to take a NC mountain trip sometimes soon.
What a fabulous vacation, and that shrimp looked so wonderful!
Thanks, Marcie! The shrimp was good. I wish that we would have had room in the car to bring some home.
Well Sherman sure looks like he had a wonderful time! I am so jealous, I love the ocean and miss it everyday 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing at Best of the Weekend. Have a wonderful 4th of July!
Thanks, Lisa. It’s always great to visit the beach. I hope you have a nice 4th, too!
What FUN! So glad you got to spend this time with your family and niece. Looks like you ate VERY well!!! Sherman is adorable, that drink…boy he was thirsty and kiss…such a cutie!!!
