OBX or Bust!

We decided to go to the Outer Banks for our first anniversary and it was otherworldly to say the least. My parents went there for their honeymoon and we wanted to go somewhere to relax and have a romantic getaway so it was the perfect place to go.

Every time when we go to the beach I’m so excited to finally be there I go take a picture.

{The first night we went to Goombay’s and had their famous crab dip for an appetizer. I had tuna tacos and Derek had the ribs.}
071
{For dessert we came back to the Inn and had our wedding cake with Pink Moscato. We both had a small piece of chocolate and vanilla. It tasted just like it did on our wedding night.}

{The second day we went to the Wright Brother’s Memorial. The admission of 8 dollars gives you access to everything for several days.}

Ocracoke Island was a completely different thing...It involved a scheduled ferry ride across the ocean.

{To end that day trip to Ocracoke island, we had a beautiful sunset on the way back on the ferry! Some of the other droolworthy …err noteworthy places we frequented were The Outer Banks Brewing Company, which was a nice seafood restaurant one night and doubled as a club the next;Chili Peppers, a local bar with corn hole and amazing drinks; and The Kill Devil Grill, which not only was in authentic dining car from the 50’s but also boasted the best crab cake sandwich and steak egg rolls I have ever tasted!}
