OBX part II

IMG_5021
My family has been going on summer vacations to the Outerbanks off and on since I was a kid. A little (largely) known fact about me: I love to lay out and get a tan. I know! It’s so bad! But it feels so good (and some say is the perfect summer accessory). I got a good amount of body boarding and wave splashing in the Atlantic in this trip as well. We had lay-out worthy weather pretty much the whole week. The OBX beaches are so remote and unpopulated. I love the feeling of walking barefoot from our rental house (aptly named Gem of the Ocean) along the wooden walkway that leads you over the dunes to the beach. I truly think there is something therapeutic about an ocean. And you know the best part about a vacation? Waking up and knowing that the day is yours to do nothing. I’m a seriously guilty person. I have no clue why, but unless I’ve dedicated or deemed a day a “vacation day”, I feel guilty doing anything that isn’t serving a greater purpose/goal. So this week I let the feeling of no obligations wash over me. And let me tell you…it felt really good. I love these pictures because they really capture the feeling of what it’s like there–which is sometimes hard to do in land and seascapes. I also played around a little bit with my Diana F+ film camera. Don’t really know what I’m doing there yet, but I’m interested in seeing the results and will post when I get them developed.
