Traveling Vicariously | Outer Banks | North Carolina


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 .  My DD26 took a road trip there maybe when she was a freshman in college.  Seems like my kids are getting to see all the places I always wanted to go.

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.
