OBX

I mentioned Monday that Dave and I want to visit all 50 states at some point together in our lifetime. This past week, we were able to cross off two more states rounding out total states visited to 10! Whoo hoo! Only 40 more to go! Haha! 

Outer Banks was gorgeous. Since it was off season it wasn't crowded at all, but the weather was still warm enough for us to hang out on the beach and get in the water. A friend of ours rented a home down there and invited us and a few others to come along. It's funny, Dave and I have always been on opposite sides of the "group vacation debate". He feels that group vacations are funner, whereas I prefer one on one vacations. However, after this vacation, I will concede that with the right group and the right location, group vacations are far better, I couldn't imagine having as good of a time as I did in NC if it hadn't been with such great friends. 






Driving on the beach is so much fun!






We look like we're photoshopped into this pic, because of the light from the sun setting and the flash of the camera. 

Here's the states we've visited so far in map form:

  2. That sounds like so much fun!

    In that last pic, you don't look like you're photoshopped so much as standing in front of a fake backdrop.

  5. Lately, Steve and I have been hanging out with a specific group of friends (his hockey friends) and we've been having a blast. We've been talking about taking a group vacation, and OBX is definitely a great place to do so! I was there probably 12 years ago with a ex-boyfriend and his family, absolutely gorgeous there! Serioously, your pics are fantastic! Have you been playing around with the settigs?

  6. I love this idea of traveling to all of the states. I want to do something similar. I do travel for work, but there are so many states I want to visit....like the Carolinas, Maine, New Hampshire, etc. I could go on and on. Looks like a really great time.

    1. It was a really great time! It's lucky you get to visit places for your job, do you take time out to tour the place you're in?

  7. Outer Banks looks gorgeous!! Your photos are amazing. I love the idea of visiting all the states…it used to be one of my goals when I was in high school, but then I got older and realized that visiting all the states is pretty difficult when you don't already live in the states ;-) I have 8 crossed off my list though, so hopefully I can at least bump that up a little someday!
