From a New Perspective Outer Banks Getaway

From a New Perspective

Our Outer Banks Getaway…

Today I am sharing our trip down south a few week’s ago.  We did a ‘thing’ that we have been craving to do for years.  It finally panned out and what an experience! Guys… We took a helicopter ride over our favorite barrier islands.  It was so surreal and breath taking. If you ever want to do this, I highly recommend Coastal Helicopters out of Manteo, NC.  They were so knowledgeable and friendly.  You can really tell they love what they do!

To see the Outer Banks from a whole new perspective made me fall in love with this place more.  What a cool opportunity to view the place we have traveled all of our lives in a whole new way.  We can do the same things, eat at the same spots, and soak in the sun on our favorite sand but to see the place we call our second home in this new perspective was unreal.

This trip we stayed at a VBRO, Siren Sound and it was perfect!! I loved all the coastal touches! We also tried some new eats and went to our favorite spots too! This trip was a success and I am so glad we went.  We needed some us time as this past few months have been crazy for us.  Lots of life changes, lots of busy, and lots of time away from each other.

This is Coastal Living for you and I just wish I could spend more time here!

If you go to the Outer Banks be sure to check out some of our favorite spots… (just to name a few).

Blue Moon Cafe | Surfin Spoon | Sam Omies | Fish Heads | Grits Grill | Tortugas Lie | Mulligans

“The waves of the sea help me get back to me”

We had breakfast with our local friends and it was just what we both needed! 

Fun fact: Our dog is named after the Bodie Island Light House.  This lighthouse is always my favorite in the Outer Banks!   

We were driving in our favorite old Nags Head neighborhoods and happen to drive on this street with this abandon house being washed away by the sea.  Two perspectives.   

Wish I brought some of our custom koozies! What a cool bar, Fish Heads… a new favorite… best shrimp ever!
