when i first moved to dc, i used to see obx stickers on cars. my curiosity got the best of me and i had to google what that meant.
most people know it stands for outer banks, but it was new for me. i'd never heard of it.
this year, i finally experienced it and had one of the best vacations of my life. we rented a place on the beach and stayed there with two other couples and one dog.
we stayed there for a week that included the fourth of july and a category 1 hurricane. luckily, besides some really loud wind, there was no damage where we were staying. even after living in florida for college, the thought of riding out a hurricane on the beach freaked me out.
i hope we make this a regular thing, because it was a blast.
