I'm stuck here in Manassas wishing I was in Rodanthe looking at those gorgeous views! Enjoy the rest of your vacation and don't be in any hurry to get back here to the oppressive heat. Sun

Lazy day today which is great. Just came back up from the beach it’s hot but a real nice breeze. Going to grab some food and head back down this evening and fish for a while. Got up for sunrise everyone else was beat so I drove to pea island solo. That place is seashell heaven. It’s a little after 2pm but hey it’s 5 o’clock somewhere right? Cheers

SeaRider


Your on vacation so both 5 o'clock count. By that calculation you are 9+ hours past 5. Cheers and tight lines tonight. Beer Fish

Thank you, I’m dreading the drive back on 95. I heard there was bad storms yesterday back home. How bad was it?

V I think I’m going to pass and just drink a few cold ones and keep my toes in the sand. Sending a few pics from crows nest next. Cheers

That sounds like a perfect plan. Carolina Brewery is my go to beer when I'm in NC (so many good things come from Chapel Hill). Easy to find and it's a good beer.

Love your view and enjoying the trip report.

I was out in it. It was pretty bad for a while. Knocked power out for a bit, lots of leaves and limbs down.

That drive home on 95 is the worst. Last year, there was an accident that blocked all of 95 N. Thankfully, we realized it before the exit for 17. My husband had Google maps route us home, and it took us through all of these back roads that scooted around Quantico. Made for a much more enjoyable ride home!

Beer Oooooo...toffee stout? Now that looks good! I can't say that I've ever picked up any Carolina Brewery and I do like to try crafts that I can't get in PA. Does Food Lion carry it?

Made it home safe, We packed up last night woke up this morning and watched one final sunrise. I already want to go back. I just keep telling myself don’t be sad it’s over be happy it happened. I already planned a 4 day trip back in Aug which gives me something to look forward to. Plus I know Shertz report will be epic. Thank you all for the kind comments and response’s.
