Spring Break Redux Mar 23, 2010
After a run of beautiful and exciting domestic and international destinations, Mrs.JohnnyK was disappointed in Spring Break 2010. (Weekend in Kecksville, see Travbuddy review..... or not.)When business concerns preclude booking travel, the resourceful husband improvises an impromptu weekend getaway. If he knows what is good for him!

If you look at a map of the east coast of the United States, any beach lover will notice the hundred mile barrier island formation off the coast of the Carolinas.

With sunny weather and eighty degree temperatures forcast, it is off to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

March is off-season, so many of the shops, amusements and attractions are not yet open for the tourist season. Forget about swimming in the fourty degree surf. No crowds, too bad.

The natural beauty of the place is not diminished in the slightest by the off-season.

There are more bottlenose dolphin in the surf than you can count, and the beaches are nearly deserted. Birdlife is copious and diverse. Lighthouses and salt marshes entertain, as do restaurants, pubs and fishing docks. We used our time relaxing and scouting the wide selection of beach houses. We will return.
