The ocean front pool at Pine Island Beach Club is a great place to cool off on a hot summer day. The pool deck has many chairs, tables, and umbrellas.
We've had many great beach days, but Thursday was the best day of the week. The sky, temperature, and wind conditions could not be more perfect, at the Pine Island Beach Club Access.
The pool at Eagles Landing. The back yard pool area is very quiet and private. But if you want music there is an outdoor Bose sound system which can be controlled by remote and your cellphone using Google Chromecast.
On the top deck at Eagles Landing, just outside the kitchen and great room. It overlooks the private pool, and you can take the stairs from the top down to the pool area. It's a nice place for meals at home.
We nailed it. 550 pieces of candy goodness in a jigsaw puzzle. It's not our puzzle, so a big thank you to a prior guest who left it behind. It was lots of fun. The large dining table at Eagles Landing Outer Banks seats 12 people for meals, but it's also great for games and projects like this one.
This is just a very small piece of the new Town of Duck Boardwalk. Evening walks before sunset are incredible. It's a nice place to walk and just hang out all year long.
My son is a competitive swimmer, and Pine Island Beach Club pool with its swim lanes is a great place for a workout. Yes, I know he did not read the words directly below him :)
They told us that Tuesday would be a big tropical storm with high winds and heavy rain all day. Well it rained a little in the morning, but the afternoon was beautiful at the Currituck County Beach Access.
The best bagels anywhere come from Lighthouse bagels in Corolla. We went there a few times this week. Buy a bag and a tub of cream cheese to take home. Plain, Rosemary and Olive Oil, and Sriracha Everything are the top 3, in my opinion.
Mike Diannas is our favorite restaurant in Corolla, serving great steaks and seafood. It's also the largest restaurant. Sunday night is the best night when they have 1/2 price bottles of wine, so you can get a bottle for just a little more than the price of a glass, and you can take the bottle with you if you don't finish. Plus you can stop by the Visitor Center in Corolla to get a "More Card" which gives you 10% off at Mike Diannas. Good deal!
Don't try this at most east coast beaches, but it is okay in The Outer Banks beaches. On the other hand, you'll find that the beaches are very family oriented and very low key. You won't see anything close to a spring break like party atmosphere. Enjoy!
Great day to be at the beach!
We're settled in the game room to watch the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight. If there's a big PPV event you want to watch on your stay, let us know, and we'll help get it set up for you.
At the Harris Teeter Grocery story for the first big shopping run. It's exciting, especially in the large beer and wine section. Harris Teeter is walking distance from Eagles Landing.
It's time for our vacation in Corolla. We are not just absentee homeowners. We vacation here too, and we can tell you everything about the drive on arrival day, going to the beach, shopping, dining, golfing, and anything else. We take at least one summer vacation week, and we visit very often throughout the rest of the year.
