Every year we go to the Outer Banks. It's nice to have a place where you know your way around, know where to shop, eat, etc. We came this year from the west, instead of the north which was kinda weird. We got to see a very different part of North Carolina as we came in through Manteo, it was neat though. I will say it took longer which was a bummer but what can ya do?
We loved where we stayed this year, Southern Shores. So convenient to everything. It only rained one day which was a great excuse to go to the outlets anyways.
Had to eat at Sam and Omie's, our favorite restaurant. Got our first family photo there too.
Went to the Elizabethan Gardens...
and despite all our years going here it was our first time going to the aquarium.
The hot tub may have been my favorite thing. We even turned the temp down and let Chloe get in, she loved it too!
We went to the Currituck Lighthouse, and climbed to the top. It was a gorgeous day.
We even got a date night! Tale of the Whale was the perfect spot.
So thankful for time to relax with family. Until next year...
