We went away last week to the Outer Banks. It was relaxing, cathartic and just plain nice for the both of us to get away from our normal routine. We took long walks on the beach, put our feet in the VERY cold water, drove many miles, took a ferry to another island, ate good food, drank some cocktails and enjoyed each other's company. The day of our departure to go home my hubs told me that he had brought some work but he never looked at it. I told him it was probably good for him. I think it was good for us both to just be away from it all and forget about everything. So to follow are a few pictures from the Outer Banks. I highly recommend it as a destination especially during off season.
