A week in North Carolina’s Outer Banks was quite the trek for our wild little family, but the cross country flight and decent (4.5 hours) car ride were more than worth the hassle to have an unforgettable experience.
Quality time spend with my brother, sister, and their families, plus my mom and dad, a family friend, and my cousin & her family.
A chance for Bergen and Georgia to play with their cousins (6 in all)
Getting to show Slaed, Bergen and Georgia my family’s beach cottage and the place my family vacationed throughout my entire childhood, but haven’t visited in 10 years!
In short the trip involved a lot of sand, a lot of sun (and sunscreen), many magical sunsets, and a ton of tasty meals. I’m sharing a few snapshots and highlights here, but as always stay tuned for more nitty-gritty details in the coming weeks.
We spent the majority of our time in Duck, a small town on the northern end of the Outer Banks. However, you’ll see from the quick photo essay that we ventured north to visit Corolla Beach Lighthouse as well as south to climb the east coast’s tallest sand dunes at Jockey’s Ridge, and honor our wizards in the flight at the Wright Brother’s Memorial.
