Peter and I went back to the Outer Banks again this year for vacation. We decided to go to Kitty Hawk instead of Corolla. We wanted to try out different places and see which areas we liked best. We ended up liking Corolla better. Corolla was more remote and had much more beach than Kitty Hawk. We went during the week of Labor Day again since we had such great weather last year. Such was not the case this year haha. It rained more than half the time, but we still had a great time!
The beach on the evening we arrived:
We went out to eat at The Outer Banks Brewing Station one night and it was delicious!! Such a fun night :)
We had initially planned to go mini golfing after the Brewery, but another storm rolled in that evening so we went back to our house and watched a movie instead. When the weather was nice the next morning, we headed out for mini golfing.
The road to our house. We were right next to a golf course so the landscape and scenery were quite nice.
Even when it was a clear and sunny day there was no swimming because of the strong currents. We were allowed in the water up to our knees and could feel the strong pull just that far in.
We spent our last evening of vacation on a fun date that started with dinner at a waterfront restaurant.
Our table faced the water and we enjoyed a beautiful sunset with our delicious food. I forgot to take pictures of our food. (Probably because it was soooo good that we both dove right in!) Peter had filet mignon and I had a crab cake and scallops. I was so full, but they had homemade desserts so I got a piece of chocolate peanut butter pie to take home.
After dinner we hit up another mini golf place for a rematch. This was inside one of the little towers.
Unfortunately, Peter won--again! I always start out strong and then he always ends up winning! It was still a great night and we shared many laughs and made many memories.
Since I always collect shells, this trip was no different :)
