Chris and I are enjoying a post vaccine vacation in the Outer Banks. Let me tell you – there is just such a sense of relief and happiness that we both are fully vaccinated. This trip is our usual annual birthday trip to a beach. Normally the family is with us but this year we are on our own and while I miss them terribly it just was not going to work this year. I love how Chris always tries to make my birthday perfect.
The place we are staying is deserted which is one of the reasons we like to make the trip at this time. It is post spring break and before summer madness. The place we are staying has 12 units and we are the only ones here. It is wonderful.
We are right on the beach and wake up every morning to a view out the windows of the mighty Atlantic rocking and rolling. I fall asleep to the sound of the waves and wake up to the sound of the waves. It is my happy place indeed.
We have enjoyed walks on the beach, visiting some historic places, taking in some local sights and have eaten some pretty wonderful food. All safely. People here still are adhering to masking up inside and that gives me comfort as well. This virus is still around and with the news from India I am praying that strain does not cross into the US.
Suffice it to say it has been a very good week. We have enjoyed time together, beautiful weather and beautiful scenery. We are making some of those perfect day memories and I am very grateful.
What has your week been like? Anything special happen? How’s your weather? Rainy? Sunny? Tell me all about in the comments and Comment for a Cause for Hospice of the Valley.

Shopping for plants and hanging baskets,in the pour down rainstorm.
But, now the sun is out for the plants are on their way. I think one more trip will do it
The landscape ties have been returned and back to square 1. For now!
Being fully vaccinated is a wonderful feeling isn’t it? And a vacation at the beach is a beautiful way to celebrate that. I want to go to the Outer Banks so bad and one day I will. Ash is already planning her first beach trip from college there. 🙂
Sounds like the perfect week.
Raining and chilly here…but no surprise in Ohio, right? Your photos- each one is prettier than before! Thanks for the sunshine!
How wonderful.I know you love being by the ocean. You were all alone there except for the odd bird and a few little critters. Good company! xo
What a wonderful trip! Your Mr. Diamond is a keeper! Love that last image the most.
Sounds perfect! Glad you got a lovely get-away at the beach – what could be better???
The Outer Banks is a wonderful place to visit. You & Chris did pick a good time. All the pictures are amazing!! Being fully vaccination is a good feeling.
Your images and words exude absolute peace. As one who’s seen the ocean only once in her life, more than 40 years ago, I really enjoyed seeing this place you love. What a wonderful place to celebrate your birthday.
So thankful to hear that you’re having a. Good time! I loved the beach photos!
