Here Comes the (Outer Banks) Sun

At long last . . . the sun!

It’s still a little bit chilly here on the Outer Banks but there is something about a deep blue sky and a clean, fresh breeze that puts everyone in a great mood.

This, of course, is either Valentine’s Day weekend or President’s Day weekend–it all depends if you’re romantic or political. Personally, I would recommend ascribing to the romantic regardless of political persuasion.

There are couples strolling along the beach–bundled up, it is cold after all, and maybe they are talking about politics, but more likely they’re discussing where to go for dinner tonight. That’s one of the best things about the Outer Banks–not the food, which is great, but the chance to have a romantic getaway at any time of the year.

There are a couple of things to check out for visitors who are in the area for the next week or so. TheTenth Annual Freedmen’s Colony Blues Jam will be next Friday, at 6:30 in the College of the Albemarle auditorium in Manteo. Some great local talent and regional blues masters will be on stage.

Also, the Frank Stick Memorial Art Show is running through Saturday at Glenn Eure’s Ghost Fleet Gallery in Nags Head. Some truly fantastic local art.
