Her Outer Banks Bucket List

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!

Virginia

We made it to Virginia today.  We are still completely covered in North Carolina pollen though.  It was a huge mess to get us packed up and ready to go.  We went and bough a small air blower to try and dust things off before packing them in the RV but there is still pollen all over everything, even inside.  There is even a thin layer all throughout the inside of the truck.  Ugh!  We will only be here for a week before we jump back down to North Carolina again to see my mom in the Outer Banks!

It snowed pollen

I have never experienced anything like this!  In the last two days the pollen has invaded!  Today on my way home from the grocery store I noticed a big yellow cloud ahead of us, hovering almost like fog.  The closer we got, the thicker it looked.  By the time I arrived at our campground I realized we were IN the pollen cloud.  Huge areas were super thick and moving with the wind across our site.  Standing outside, we were covered in it and it looked like snow falling from the sky.

Taryn’s bicycle seat, random items covered in pollen and my supposed to be black shoes.  Cars and trucks driving down the road kick up a pollen “dust” cloud.  THIS IS CRAZY!  I’m so glad we leave this weekend!
