Autumn Trip to OBX: Here’s a summary of the family’s fall trip to the Outer Banks!
Autumn trip to OBX
I love the beach in the fall!
It’s cooler, the crowds are gone, and the beach is great! Thomas’ parents came to Outer Banks in September for many years with the same friends who joined them from New Jersey!
This year our house was on the south coast. It was literally right on top of the ocean and you didn’t even have to touch the sand to get past the dunes! Just down the stairs, across the deck, go up the stairs and there you are!
I can watch them play on the beach sitting on the stairs 🙂
While we didn’t have a pool, which was fine this time of year, we did have a hot tub!!!
The boys loved soaking in it after they got freezing in the ocean.
They also had breakfast right by the sink. How serviceable is that!
The house was spacious for our group and had purple carpeting! love them.
It was cold, but the boys had fun in the waves!
Swimming pool trading
When they were swimming, the big boys were learning to play pool! Their new favorite activity.
For the first few days, here’s what we ate!
