Bears, Earthquakes, and Hurricanes...
Trip Start Aug 18, 2011
6Trip End Aug 27, 2011
Today was our first full day in Nags Head. We spent half the day at the beach reading our books, swimming, and sunbathing. Kevin enjoyed swimming in the ocean. The waves are outstanding and rough. I was little skittish to get out there since the waves were hitting pretty hard. Kevin asked if we should get a Bogey board and I said, "yes"! Those are so much fun! I haven't used one since I was a kid. Since we were getting sunburned easily after a few hours (even with 50 SPF), we decided to go in and grab some lunch. I made myself a turkey sandwich, yum while Kevin had some left over pizza (ew).
We hung out in our hotel room before making plans for the afternoon. All of the sudden our beds started to shake... I am sitting there and looking at the closet hangers as they were moving, and I looked outside our balcony was moving side to side
Our phones are cut-out as we tried to call our family members. We went to check out the outside world to see if anyone had the same reaction as we did or if there were any concerns. We walked outside and the front desk employees are going about their daily jobs, people are walking to and from the beach, and cars driving around. We got in the car and went shopping. Kevin needed sunglasses (and we needed the cheapest ones we could find). He found a pair at a grocery store. We bought cold cuts for our lunch tomorrow, and dinner for the night.
Our phones still weren't working, but we watched the news-we learned about Libya and the rebels and how the Earthquake was felt by everyone who lives in the East Coast (even Toronto felt the earthquake)
We spent the evening taking photographs with my new camera (that I LOVE) on the beach. Enjoy the pictures. We went to dinner at Dirty Dicks Crab House. I ordered some steamers as Kevin had fish and chips. Our waitress at the restaurant said that the hurricane is at a 4 and they will probably evacuate on Friday. We gave the restaurant a rating of 3 out of 5.
I am sorry to say folks we are leaving tomorrow morning
Love you all and thanks for reading our entries.
Sorry our adventure was cut short, you can blame Mother Nature!
Love, Katie and Kevin
