We are in the process of planning our summer vacation. I just sent a deposit on a house in the Outerbanks of North Carolina. Ouch! Yet, still as affordable as we could make it. By working the seasons and flexing my childrens' schedule, we were able to take advantage of a nice house without the high summer week rates.
My bucket list includes a trip back to the Outter Banks. As a family we have always the quiet, slow pace of the barrier island. I enjoy the programs of the National Park. As we are a very fair family, sun is not our friend. We spend only a few days or hours outside. If we are careful, we can swim, search for seashells, fish, play games and sleep. Of course, the sleep is probably just a wish.
We may go elsewhere this summer. I would love another trip west but the airfare has not been cooperative. Summer fares are just starting to come on sale so I hope that something comes up soon. While we went to the southwest last time, I want to visit Yellowstone and the Pacific Northwest. Perhaps you have been there? Do you have any t ips you want to share?
