OBX From My Window

It's been a bit since I took pictures while we are driving somewhere, so I decided to do it yesterday while we drove up to Nags Head.  I am so in love with the scenery here.  When Austin was here with us, he wasn't impressed in the least with it.  BORING is what he said.  I can see why it would seem kind of monotonous to some.  I never tire of it though.
I normally hate driving with the windows down.  I didn't even like riding with the top down when Nathan had a convertible.  Here, I want to not only roll the windows down, I want to hang my head out the window like a carefree dog.
It's just soothing to me for some reason.
There was quite a bit of smoke up that way, and it really triggered my allergies.  Still, it was worth it.  Once we arrived in Nags Head, we did a bit of shopping and scored some greatly needed beach shoes and new shirts for a great price.  As we were leaving the store, we ran into Jack and Ruth, a couple that I work with.  We ended up eating dinner with them at the Mexican restaurant Azteca and it was very good.  It was a nice bonus to have good company too.

Ok, back to the scenery.  It's postcard perfect, isn't it?

I have pictures from pretty much the same viewpoints, but yours are so much better! Driveby shots are better when you have the windows down -- I never do!

It sounds like your job is a good one, nice people...I'm glad. It sure is in a great location. (Although I can believe that your young adult son might say it was boring --- we are old and we loved it!)

I can't believe he thought it was boring either, Sallie. =)
