We had a four day weekend, so we decided to drive down to OBX after work on Wednesday. It was such a long, dark drive, but we made it just in time for sunrise on Thursday. This was the only sunrise that we saw.
We stayed at the Avon Cottages. It has a kitchen, it's small, cheesy, cheap and they take dogs. It really doesn't get any better than that.
That's Rob jumping.
Swimming and Tanning
Mack Daddy's- Shrimp and grits (one of the best things I've ever eaten), cool bartender, decent beer selection
Buxton Munchies - local favorite, weird hippie restaurant with a Sponge Bob theme, fish tacos
Mad Crabber - 10¢ shrimp
Diamond Shoals- huge fresh fish selection, nice waiters, cheesy salad bar, hush puppies instead of bread
Stack 'em High - grits (I know pancakes should be first because of the name--but I love grits), pancakes, biscuits, 80 something year old owner still greats guests,
Good Winds- Sunset view, not the best drink selection, crab cakes were okay
Playing a food trivia game and coming in 2nd.
The never packed lightly car.
