wrapping up a great obx summer
We came across this blog about the summer of 2014 on the Joe Lamb, Jr website. It sums up what the Outer Banks summer was like and gives a quick preview of some upcoming events. One event that was overlooked, though, is Day at the Docks coming up September 20 in Hatteras Village.
Wow! What a spectacular way to wrap up the summer of 2014 on the Outer Banks. Temperatures nudging 90, a nice SSW breeze, water temperatures in the mid 70s . . . it just doesn’t get much better than this.
It’s been a good summer, Hurricane Arthur notwithstanding. That was definitely an oddity. July Hurricanes in the Atlantic Basin aren’t very common in July, and very rare for the Outer Banks. The last July hurricane to come ashore here was Alex at the end of July 2004 and that affected Ocracoke only.
