It does not happen very often but it actually snowed, just a little, on the Outer Banks Friday night while just across the bridge in lower Currituck snow covered the ground by Saturday morning. For those of us that live here we normally get some flurries or a dusting every year. In the 9yrs that I have lived here there has only been snow on the ground twice and one of those was last years whopping 3 inches. Many children like mine had never actually seen that much snow on the ground so to them it was like 3 feet. It was time to turn the boogie boards in the sleds, make a snowman, and have snowball fights. It was one of those Kodak moments for sure and my kids have been asking me if I think they will get to do it again this winter. While most of us spend the year in shorts, sandals, and ...

House Flooded Inside! This is a true story two times over. Several years ago one of my buyers in Ocean Sands on the Outer Banks had the ice maker water line fail and the house flooded inside. Since this was a rental home and in the off season, it was some time before the problem was found. And . . . the kitchen is on the top floor. Can you imagine the damage caused?!? Then a few weeks ago one of my Kitty Hawk neighbors had the exact same problem. Of course, this is a second home so, once again, the home was vacant for a few days. Another house flooded inside! Prevent this from happening to you. Check your ice maker water line between the wall valve and refrigerator. Many of these lines are plastic. The failure is usually at the "o" ring at the appliance connection. Go to your local hard...

Sunday Morning Breakfast on the Outer Banks What is it about the idea of leaving church and heading for our favorite place for Sunday morning breakfast on the Outer Banks? I hope you have your favorite spot for that special Sunday treat and it's as good as mine. If you travel to the Outer Banks be sure and plan on having breakfast any morning at Stack 'Em High in Kitty Hawk at milepost 4.5. Um-m-m good. They have the usual fare. Fried or scrambled eggs, omelets, sausage, country ham, bacon, toast, hash browns, grits, waffles, French toast, pancakes. Let me just say my usual order is 2 eggs, bacon, hash browns, wheat toast and coffee. I love the hash browns. They must sprinkle some magic over them before serving. This is not the average Sunday morning breakfast on the Outer Banks! But wa...

Many times I feel so lucky to call the Outer Banks my home. It is such a special place to live and visit. I was over at a cookout in my neighborhood the other night with some good friends and as the sun was about to go down I snapped a few photos that were so pretty I decided not to keep them to myself. The photos were taken from my neighbors deck( not a bad view to have every night) looking back across the Sound just north of the Wright Memorial Bridge in Kitty Hawk.  I hope you enjoy the pics. If you have not already visited the Outer Banks please come down and if you have please come back!!

Dandelions Commons Weeds? I think not! Who can call this Flower a weed? Dandelions greet the day with a bright, sunny, burst of yellow. They scream, "Cheer!" Ok, so you have this unrealistic desire for a green lawn, no weeds, no color, no character. Well, kill dandelions if you must, but you will loose. And ... you know why! Each child (and those a child at heart) knows the pleasure of blowing those wonder white fuzz balls of dandelion seed into the wind. There they are lying in wait for you to turn your back. Just a quick blow of breath. Seeds dancing across the yard, across the neighborhood, across the town, across the nation. Just think you may have a dandelion growing in your yard that blew in from the Outer Banks! I took the photo above in my Kitty Hawk front yard as my husband fro...

40 Shades of Green - Outer Banks Living Ireland, its people, and the folklore are wonderful. I love hearing their speech as well as their stories. Everything seems to come alive in my mind. Perhaps it's because my mother was a Kelley. Through her I claim a bit of Irish. There are their blessings: May the Road Rise to Meet You ... You can probably finish it. Then there are the 40 shades of green that represents the beauty in the lush greens found throughout Ireland. I've not been there, but a trip there is on my To Do list. I believe the Outer Banks must hold some of the Irish blessing. Though I'm not sure we have 40 shades of green, the Outer Banks does offer up many shades. The photo above was taken this Spring on The Woods Road in Kitty Hawk. Yes, Outer Banks Living offers a beautiful...

Drive down The Woods Road to Twiford Road and take another right. Enjoy the short drive through the woods and bogs in Kitty Hawk.

The value of a cat varies greatly depending on who is commenting. Why is that? No one questions the value of a dog, a horse, or even a skunk! But cats are not loved by many. In fact I understand cats are - by law - considered to have no value. What?!?!? The story goes something like this.(Remember I was so stressed by what I heard that I didn't hear every detail.) A local pet shop had a kitten looking for a home when a teenager FOR FUN stole the kitten, hopped in a getaway car and sped away. A bystander saw what happened, hopped in his car and followed. Make of car and partial license plate was taken. Police called. Perpetrator tracked down. Kitten returned. Perp didn't get charged, didn't apologize. Why? Because according to the police, cats are considered to have no value. Don't tell ...

Have you ever thought about buying an Outer Banks home?  Today's market conditions make it a great time to look for a home in the Outer Banks.  Rents have remained strong and are an excellent way to offset the cost of home ownership.  If you are planning a trip to the Outer Banks and would like to learn more about buying a home in the Outer Banks, I am offering a home buyers seminar every week throughout the Summer.  For more information visit: Outer Banks Home Buyers Seminar.

On a cold, windy day in December, 104 years ago man first flew with the birds in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. Today is a very important and memorable day in North Carolina's history and the history of aviation.            It was on December 17, 1903 that Orville Wright made a 12-second, sustained flight which took off from Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.  It was the first successful, powered, piloted flight in history.The flight might have happened on December 13 , the weather was ideal..but that was a Sunday and the brothers had promised their Dad they would not attempt the flight on the Sabbath.  The weather conditions worsened for the next few days but on Thursday Orville and Wilbur decided that if they were going to get back home to Ohio for Christmas, they had to go ahead with their att...
