A vacation on the Outer Banks in November is where to go for a slow down from the fast pace of holiday shopping, traffic, and masses of people in the malls. Driving across that bridge, traffic free, will automatically bring you the sigh of "finally, I’m home again". That is one of many qualities I appreciate most on the Outer Banks, the empty beaches filled with nothing but peace, quiet, sea glass, driftwood, and puppies running free. Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum Volunteer Day When? November 7 Where? Hatteras, NC From 10AM - 1PM you can have a meet and greet with active volunteers, enjoy...[read more]

They say you will never forget doing something your first time and I will never forget riding my first wave. I will also never forget my first time attending Surfing for Autism. The day was filled with a crazy mixture of emotions from happy, sad, laughter, gratefulness, hurt, determination and more. The chills I felt all day, the happiness I felt all day, also the sadness I felt all day knowing I couldn't do more for these kids, is a combination of emotions I will always remember. What led me to push aside my sadness was witnessing the happiness surfing brought to every child. The weekend...[read more]
