OBX

Our time is coming to an end in DC. Since Sunday was our last one here, we decided to head out to Outer Banks, North Carolina to visit the beach! Troy, Jake, Jenna, Grant and I ...

started our adventure at 6:30 am and headed south.

We arrived around noon and we were on the beach minutes later. The waves were quite rough... most of us have some sad battle wounds. Grant and I had fun collecting shells and just laying on our towels listening to the ocean while we watched people just getting destroyed in the waves. It was so fun and relaxing.

On the way home we stopped at a small.. fresh.. EVERYthing stand (probably my favorite thing about the east coast) and got us all some yummy peaches, watermelon, kettle corn, strawberry jam and corn on the cob. It was such a short and sweet trip!
