It's the day after the Super Bowl and here on the Outer Banks it's a beautiful day. Temperatures got to the mid 50s, the sun was out all day and there was a light breeze.
Best of all, it looks as though it's going to be like that for the next few days.
Like the rest of the country, the Outer Banks went crazy for the Super Bowl. A quick, and what could only be described as unscientific, survey showed a noticeable preference for Atlanta.
Well...the best that can be said for the Atlanta fans was that it was a heck of a game. The kind of game that people look back on 10 or 15 years later and say, "Do you remember Super Bowl XI?"
Of course, New England fans will have a different take on the day, but 10 or 15 years later the question will be the same.
Which brings us to our photo, which has nothing at all to do with football, sports or the Super Bowl
It's a picture of sunset over Kitty Hawk Bay, and it's a reminder that no matter how wrapped up we get in sports and our teams, no matter who wins or loses, the sun is still going to rise and set.
Of course here at Joe Lamb Jr., & Associates & Associates we're pretty sure the sunrise and sunsets are just a little bit more spectacular, just a little bit better on the Outer Banks than anywhere else.
There's no more Super Bowl Sundays coming up this year, but there are plenty of other reasons for visiting the Outer Banks this winter. The sunset over Kitty Hawk Bay is just one example of how beautiful our world can be.
The offseason, especially winter, is a wonderful time for a getaway. Our rental rates are the lowest of the year, the selection is outstanding and there's plenty of time to wander lonely as a cloud along our beaches.
