Our 1st destination on our trip south was the Outer Banks. We met at a rest stop on I 79 to start our caravan.
The plan was to drive under 300 miles a day so it took 3 days to get to the Outer Banks. There was heavy traffic due to the Columbus Day holiday. The 3rd day the traffic eased off but there was rain. We got a weather alert that there could be coastal flooding on the Outer Banks. Numerous stops were made at rest areas to give the dogs and the humans a break. Some of us even goofed off!
Cape Hatteras KOA in Rodanthe
By the time we arrived at the KOA it had stopped raining and the sun was out. The campground is right on the Atlantic Ocean.
The campground had lots of amenities including a pool that is open year-round.
There was also a restaurant on-site and the food was very good.
We were close enough to the ocean that we could hear the sound of the waves crashing at night. How peaceful.
We enjoyed spending time on the beach. We were able to see sunrises over the Atlantic and walking across the street we could see sunsets over the sound. Often we saw numerous kite boarders out having fun.
We enjoyed a good seafood meal at Waterman’s Grill. We watched the kite boarders as we dined.
The weather was absolutely perfect the week we were there. Here’s another beautiful sunset!
