Welcome to the beach
My family and I just got back from our first summer week in our new Outer Banks beach house, Carolina Cottage at Milepost 3.5 on the ocean side of Rt. 158, aka "the bypass."
The ocean was as clear and warm as you would ever want it, with just one thunderstorm in Kitty Hawk all week.
We put the house through its paces: I grilled on the pool deck at least three times and wore out the stairs running supper up and down. After swimming in the ocean all day, the pool was a treat at night. We played Marco Polo and listened to Green Day on my MP3 player.
