Jdj1991 December 2018 Rodanthe Trip Report




Look at me using my September trip refund for a free ocean front stay in a brand new village....Rodanthe!!!!


We left Mechanicsville mid-day on Wednesday and drove through that unfortunate white yucky stuff falling from the sky for a bit in VA before moving on to clear skies for the rest of the trip. We arrived and made our through each room in the house - love love love the house! We unpacked and fed our faces before hubby broke out his traveling decorations and turned the house into a tacky light tour.

Thursday - we woke early for a sunrise and it did not disappoint! Pics and a long walk were followed by breakfast at home. Then on to the beach for walks, naps, cornhole and time with my sweetie.

Giddy!!!! Lol!!!! I probably am! I love it here...I love the peace and quiet of a December vacay. I love that besides hubby and Hatteras dog .... I haven’t seen another living thing all day. I love trying out new villages and gambling on the weather of that December trip. I love being away from work and the hustle bustle of the silly season. And I love the fact that a hurricane won’t evacuate me this time.... me and Florence are still not on speaking terms!

My sweetie and me (pardon the hair .... it can be a bit mch with the breeze here)

I know right? She’s such a diva...she is squished up in the corner as if it’s the last space on the deck. Goofy dog.

Couldn't find a place closer to the water? Laughing smiley It must be hard walking that 10 feet...

Great trip report so far. Looking forward to more.

See John - here’s what happened...

Florence chased me out of corolla and the 3 little days we did have there we didn’t get to spend much time on the beach cause the water was so high. So once I got the refund I told hubby that this girl was gonna spend the next vacation up to my neck in sand!!!!!!

Yeah it’s a tough life rolling out the door to the sand like that!!!!!

This looks just fabulous! Would you mind sharing the house name and realtor? I didn't realize any houses on HI had that proximity to the beach.... WOW


RE: Jdj1991 December 2018 Rodanthe Trip Report




Wait a second. I've stayed at this house back in 2013! It's a different color now, but I recognize that deck (especially the top deck). the water is A LOT closer now. I believe it was called Geneva back then, but I'd have to look it up.

My daughter and Duke (RIP) on the top deck. Please hug Hatteras dog for me and have a great time!

Get out!!!!! That’s it! They’ve added a dining room off the kitchen now and it’s painted teal and yellow and yes there’s A LOT less beach now! As we walked further south the beach is much wider than here near the pier. At high tide the water comes nearly under the house.

My Hatteras gets hugs almost hourly.... she’s so rotten it’s pathetic!

Wonderful pictures, Jdj1991! Love the interaction between you and John, love your wild "Hatteras hair" (as we call it) and your lovable dog...ok and your husband, too. Wink smiley I will say that I can't believe how close you are to the ocean...wowzer!

It's a beautiful time of year here as long as you bring clothes that can deal with the 60's and the 30's (with wind chill). The even emptier beaches are heavenly. Looking forward to more from your report.

Right? I’ve got t-shirts all the way to a winter coat and gloves! I’ve been here in shorts in December and sweatshirts in may.....

It’s crazy how we that come a lot recognize or have even stayed in the same houses before. Even funnier how the landscape changes from year to year too.

Very true on all fronts. Enjoy yourselves and I know I'm not alone in looking forward to more pix. smiley with shades
