OBX CHRISTMAS TREASURES/DECORATIONS - Posted By: KelLovesOBX on 12/6/2019
Christmas is in three weeks! Where did the year go? I got this beautiful Santa driftwood ornament from "shell hunter" last summer; it looks so cool on my Christmas tree. Would love to see some of our members' beachy Christmas treasures. :) We're spending New Year's week at OBX this year. Can't wait to celebrate NYE in our favorite place!

THURSDAY 12/5 ON THE OBX - Posted By: JimmyZ on 12/6/2019
Another lovely day here today. The temp was 49. The ocean is getting rough and the winds are from the N. I will try to post when I can. We are in and out a lot with Christmas shopping, traveling to Connecticut for the holidays and spending a lot of time there. So if I miss a lot of days, you know why.

RODANTHE OLD CHRISTMAS - Posted By: General Lee on 12/5/2019
I am fascinated by the tradition of the Rodanthe old Christmas celebration, it looks like a really good time that reminds me of simpler days when Christmas was more about the simple things and less about how much money you spend on gifts. I’d love to try and make it down sometime to experience it, I can’t imagine how cool it is to see the appearance of the old buck after a day long celebration.

WEDNESDAY 12/4 ON THE OBX - Posted By: JimmyZ on 12/5/2019

DINKY'S WATERFRONT RESTAURANT - ??
definitely a fàvorite the view , the atmosphere perfect ! Food delicious!!

DUNE BURGER - last year was a disappointment
We have always loved DB, but in 2018 we tried to go to Dune Burger. When we went, after we ordered informed us that they were out of beef patties, which seems really odd since that is the key thing that they sell. Then it was an ordeal getting our card credited.

GIDGETS PIZZA AND PASTA - Margherita Pizza
we ordered Gidgets for delivery. I wanted the Margherita Pizza which is hard to find on a menu and I ate the whole thing!! The rest of my family ordered the cheese pizza. The slices are big. And the delivery time was reasonable for a weekend

HOWARD'S PUB - Good Lunch on our Island Day Trip
We stopped in for lunch on a dreary and drizzly day. Not a lot of people were coming down from HI, so most of the island was pretty empty. We had a good meal. Portion sizes were reasonable. Nothing that really stood out as a pro or con - just seemed to be a good solid meal. They lost a star because of price. It's not a cheap lunch, that's for sure. But we did not leave with any disappointme... [Read Full Review]

THE FOOD DUDES KITCHEN - Great Food - Can Get Packed!
The food is top notch. Really good, but they lost a star simply because of price. It is not a cheap lunch at all. But you'll leave satisfied and full. The shop is really small, and they can get very busy. I recommend eating here at an off-time... like lunch at 2:30 or something.
