First off, NC's OBX is the Best Beach in the World. You can have the Bahamas, Tahiti, & Spain's Costa del Sol. We like our sand brown & our ocean a little on the wild side. The pink sky in the morning & at dusk is worth watching, too.
Quite the deceptive ambiance, oui? I like to call this the Calm Before the Storm. Little did the unsuspecting Scribe Family know that this pastoral scene in no way foreshadowed the day that was to come...
Bear witness, my friends, to the Skim Board Blowout. For as long as The Scribes have been journeying to the OBX, the kids just don't seem to remember ~ or maybe they just don't care? ~ that they'll spend most of each & every day on their keisters, with lots of sand in their suits!
This is how we get All Tripped Up, OBX-style! Don't know if this snap captures the exact moment, but after one of these wild rides this chica ended up not on her fanny, but on her face.
And then there's the Boogie Board Bounce. Not quite sure why he's all whampy-jawed, as we say down Texas Way, but he sure nuff is, ain't he?
Anybody care to dance the OBX Shuffle? I'm told by the experts that this particular step takes years & years to master to perfection. I'm thinking she should audition for America's Got Talent. Seriously.
By at the end of the day, however, a good time is always had by all. We close today's post with a primo example of the OBX Wipeout Wink. It's all good, you know...
