Visit the Outer Banks of North Carolina
Well, tonight I was going to settle in and write a nice product review. However, I’m sitting here at the computer and it’s just gotten warm enough to open the window and let the almost-summer night air in. The Summer Solstice isn’t too far away. Next to Autumn, it’s my favorite time of year.
But then I got to thinking about this crummy weather we’ve been having in New England lately, and my mind started to wander with thoughts about taking a vacation from it all.
Since that isn’t likely to happen (outside of the camping trip we have planned for a few days) I decided to revive my Vicarious Traveler meme.
So now, in my mind, where do I want to go? Europe? See the U.S.A. in a Chevrolet foreign made car? I was going to let you all visit one of my favorite places in New England – Newport, Rhode Island with all their glorious Golden Age mansions, but I’ll save that to another day when the warmer weather (hopefully) sets in.
I was thinking about Rio, since my friend’s sister went to Brazil as a foreign exchange student while in high school. I tried Google Earth, but don’t feel like downloading the application this late at night.
So, I’ve decided to take myself down south, to the Outer Banks of
There are mountain people and then there are seashore people, and I thrive when I can smell the scent of salt water in the air, and feel sand between my toes. I look across the Atlantic (since I’ve never seen the Pacific) and see myself sipping lattes in little bistros in some Parisian or Italian city. At least that’s how I pictured myself when I was a teenager, many years ago.
So here’s some pictures of sites to see, and links of places to go.
If you’ve been, drop me a comment and fuel my imagination, and maybe I’ll just get there some day, by hook or by crook, with or without the non-traveling DH.
I’ve already had my say about the virtues of traveling solo.
