So we just got back from the Outer Banks. This was my first OBX experience. AMAZING! Nothing like what I expected. Our house was spectacular. We were 8 miles from the nearest paved road. Our only way to civilization was an 8 mile beach/baja ride along the water. We rented a Jeep Wrangler because the VW was not going to cut it.

Pure relaxation. No email, no phone, no TV. Just the sun, the dogs, my fiance and our neighbors. Every day was beautiful until our nemesis EARL decided to pay us a visit. On thursday morning, we were evacuated from heaven and told to head back to the real world. Despite the short stay (5 days instead of 7) we decided it was a place we would love to go visit again.

If you have never been to the Outer Banks, I would highly recommend it. Tourists do not exist, boardwalk to not exist. Just the amenities that mother nature has to offer. It was truly a great way to relax.

I posted a few pics for some visuals.

Enjoy, I DID!

  1. I love your pics Ryan! What kind of camera/lenses are you using? I can’t seem to get my photo’s to look as clear as yours. Not sure if I have a setting wrong or if it’s my lighting. Anywho…they’re beautiful pictures! 🙂

  2. Thank you very much. I use a Nikon D40 with a Nikkor 70-300mm zoom on it…That was purchased separately. It’s on the expensive side and may be too much zoom. Im sure you can get away with something smaller and not so expensive. Lighting def. has everything to do with it as well.. Good luck!
