Outer Banks Events l November 2014

September 15, 2014

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.
