Guess where we went last week?!:)

The Outer Banks of North Carolina!! WhoooHooo!
Hubby had to put some crown molding up in a condo in Kill Devil Hills so we got to stay there for the week...for free!:)
 We finally found some sea glass!
 Collected buckets and buckets of shells!
(This was the only day with ANY clouds at all!!)
 Enjoyed the near empty beaches!
Found a skull-shaped shell!
 Took some selfies!
Because of the government shutdown there were no vehicles at Oregon Inlet which is part of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Never seen that before!
 They have a really hard time keeping the sand off the roads on these barrier islands and to show you how skinny some areas are I borrowed a photo...
 ....from the Outer Banks website.  Can you get over's an amazing place!! Go look at the map to see these barrier islands along the coast of North Carolina!
 On the way home we visited my folks....and a farmers market.  
 Oh....and I found a quilt shop at the beach and bought a few treasures!:)



  1. Oh. Looks like you had the entire Outer Banks to yourself. Ahhh, the beach.

  2. That looks beautiful! I could send you bags of sea glass, though. *g* And I have that exact piece of Lush with the deer! We have such great taste.

    1. Lucky you, I love the Outer Banks, plus every good vacation should include a little fabric shopping!

  3. gorgeous! Sooo jealous! I'm glad you had fun!

  4. 'Oh I do like to be beside the seaside...' Looks lovely!

  5. Oh Dee your holiday looks great, just the colour of the sea and the sand made me green with envy....but I know you both deserve the break x
