The Outer Banks (OBX) is a summertime getaway for families and folks who enjoy the ocean and the sun. Fishing, snorkeling, and sight-seeing abound. There is no shortage of great food.

Located on a slender string of barrier islands, the OBX summertime weather is spectacular! Average summer temp is in the 90’s in the day and 70’s at night. Expect very warm and pleasant days with mild evenings. I suggest clothes that can be layered and peeled off as the day warms up. Shorts and short sleeves and are fine for daywear, you may even want to bring your swimsuit along for impromptu dips in the refreshing Atlantic ocean.

The Outer Banks is home to such seaside communities as Kitty Hawk and Nags Head. While these communities host a tremendous tourist population, one seems to “step back in time” when visiting the quaint little fishing village of Ocracoke.

A favorite activity is simply walking and photographing along the dunes. These shapely mounds of fine, arid sand line the entire coastline. The breezes form and re-shape the dunes one grain of sand at a time creating an artwork of its own. To photograph the dunes, is a study in design and shape and contrasts.

I suppose there are really two groups of people in the world – those who have been to the Outer Banks and those who have yet to discover its’ appeal. It is hard to explain the magnetism of this place. Sure, the beach, the ocean and the sunsets provide the obvious lure, but it goes beyond the tangible. Perhaps it is the unknown force that takes one by the soul and transforms the spirit that is so addictive. People who have visited The Outer Banks know exactly what I’m talking
about. For the rest of you – join me and find out for yourself.
