We booked our place a day earlier so we could head down early Saturday morning and not have to wait for Check in. As it turns out we were able to clear our schedule Friday. Packed up the Tesla and we left Maryland at 7:00am in no rush to get there but wanted to get through DC before traffic. Hit a little traffic but not too bad. Stopped in Williamsburg to Charge the car and let the dogs out for a few minutes. Stopped at Morris farmers market for some bacon, peaches and other items. Arrived in Duck around 1:30 parked at the charger and walked the boardwalk from the Water Front shops to Aqua. Had a couple drinks at Aqua and walked back. Wife and Daughter took advantage of time to shop on the walk. Heard from our other around 3:30 headed North to Corolla.
Weather for the week was perfect. Our days are pretty routine when at the beach in the Summer. Take the dogs to the beach for a walk around 6:30am each morning, workout, eat breakfast spend the day on the beach until 5-8. For the first time we arranged for Beach set up service with Mac Bros beach set up. We rented a Tent, 6 chairs, cooler with Ice and Cornhole boards. We will definitely do it again as my wife and Daughters said it made the week 100% better. High recommend Mac bros, three brothers that own and operate are great. Customer service was exceptional.
Few highlights we went to the Corolla beer garden for drinks and live music. Great atmosphere and music, not sure how we hadn't made it previously. Had dinner at North Banks and Agave Roja, both we great as usual. Played golf at Kilamaric twice during the week.
Waves and surf really got good back half of the week and I got in some quality hand boarding in some decent size surf for June.
Lots of seniors down for senior week. A couple days 3-4 larger groups on the beach near Perch beach access. They didn't bother us kept to the themselves, we did have to remind them to take our trash and let them "borrow" some trash bags. House behind us was really loud during the day but they quieted down at appropriate time. Have heard some stories of groups doing damage and blocking cars, but didn't see it.
Drive back wasn't as smooth as down left at 8am(hour later then I wanted to). Took 8 long hours to get home traffic was bad the entire trip.
Was nice not to pay the high Gas prices.
Can wait to get back for 2 weeks in September.
