Now let me explain the picture above. When I first moved to NC I kept hearing about "BoJangles" and how I have to go there! Everyone would talk about and I would always see commercials for it on TV. It's basically Southern fast food. Well I've been and I have to say it was pretty good... cheap and yummy chicken and biscuits. Josh hadn't been yet so we had to stop by BoJangles on the way so Josh could experience it :). I think he was impressed and he even said "Man, these are the best fries I've EVER had!".
This house pretty much amazes me. I've never seen something like it. Literally the water washes up underneath the house. Talk about beach front property!
The Outer Banks is only about 4 hours from Chapel Hill. On this trip we went to Nags Head and camped in the national park there. The campground was great, only about 100 feet from the beach and we could literally hear the ocean waves from our tent. There is nothing more relaxing than being able to hear the waves at night while going to bed. Honestly it was wonderful and the weather could not have been more perfect! The high was about 79 and it wasn't humid at all the entire weekend.When Josh and I walked over the dunes to the beach we were shocked! There were cars EVERYWHERE on the beach. Here Josh and I were with our two little towels and we were surrounded by big trucks. We had to be careful not to get run over. It almost look like one of those monster car conventions because everyone had their supped up trucks to show off. People were sitting in the backs of their trucks instead of on the beach. I'm not sure if this is typical, but maybe it is for the Outer Banks. It was just strange to see.Cars on the beach??
Our time at the Outer Banks was short lived but I had an amazing time! I'd love to go back! The beach was great and so relaxing. For the Fourth we went into town and walked around. They were having a Fourth of July festival which was so cute. There were gospel singers, a pie back off and lots of watermelon to eat. It's exactly what I'd picture a Southern Fourth of July to be like. The town are so cute there and they have the most adorable houses!! Someday I'd like a house with a big porch in the front, just like all the houses out here. And I'll sit on my porch, relax and read a book with some lemonade or sweet tea. Man, the south is really starting to get to me. :)
