Over Christmas I asked my mom if there was anywhere on her bucket list that she had never been, but had always wanted to go. She immediately answered “Outer Banks, North Carolina” without giving it a thought. I immediately said, “let’s do it!” So we started planning this stop and she flew in to meet us here. We were here less than 30 minutes before we ventured out to the beach in search of shells. We found a few keepers and I loved all the purple pieces so much. I’m so happy to spend the next 8 days exploring with my favorite people! Tomorrow we are taking a ferry out to Ocracoke Island!
