Arnold Nags Head vacation 6/27 - 7/4




Finally at our long awaited beach vacation. Skipped OBX last year for a family trip to Exuma in the Bahamas. That was an amazing trip, but still glad to be back on the OBX this year. All the kids were able to come as well. We have a son and daughter still in IL, a daughter in Pittsburgh and a daughter and son-in-law in Tampa. We all traveled Friday night and met in Manteo Saturday morning. First stop was The Front Porch Cafe for coffee, both to drink and for the week at our house. Drove around and walked around a bit and then had early lunch at Lost Colony Brewery and Cafe. Fish and chips were awesome. Then headed to Jennette’s Pier for a few hours of beach time before check in. It was crowded! I’ve never seen it so crowded, and especially on a turn over day. We stayed until just after 3:00 and then packed up and headed to the house. Got in a 3:30. We are staying across from Jockey’s Ridge. Absolutely love this area. Not many homes, so the beach isn’t crowded, but still close to everything. We plan on spending most of the time at the beach with perhaps a little souvenir shopping one or two nights. Brought most of what we needed and had our first meal all planned out so we didn’t have to run to the store the first night. I went early Sunday morning and one daughter and my son came along. We were back to the house before 8:00. Most people had masks on in the store, but a few didn’t. For anyone wondering, we will be masking up when we are out and will be respectful of distancing. Not sure why that is such a big deal, but let’s not get into that.

I’ll be trying to update the report as we are here.

Got up in time for sunrise this morning (Monday) and found my son had beat me to it! We watched it and then set up our canopy and got the chairs out. I went for a beach run and noticed a sun dog. Made a beer run, had a bagel and then went to have coffee on the beach. Found a tag on our canopy from the Village of Nags Head saying that canopies have to be taken down by 8:00 PM and can’t be up before 7:00 AM. Whoops! We definitely are in the camp of taking them down at night. Can’t stand seeing them on the beach. Glad to see the village is trying to enforce their rule. No hard feelings here.

Tuesday. Got up again for the sunrise. Beach was empty this morning. Water was so calm. Dolphins going by. Was an awesome way to spend a few minutes alone and reflect on how blessed I really am.

We have had great weather so far. Ocean has been calm with nice regular wave good for boogie boarding. Not long rides, but still nice.
