Good morning to you! I trust you have had an enjoyable week and the weekend lived up to all that was promised! Being a fan of college football I could not be more excited about last weekend and watching the exceptional game as the Alabama Crimson Tide “rolled over” LSU!! Roll Tide!

I know it may come as of a surprise to some of you but after being at being home for a week I find myself on the road once again. I am looking at a road trip that will include traveling through Florida, Georgia and Ohio instructing at a few photography workshops. This trip will close out my photographic workshop journey for this year.

I had a few free days on the front end of my trip to Florida so I took advantage of it and stopped in to visit with a dear friend of mine in Perdido Key. While driving late in the evening and traveling on a few of the long and lonely highways I started to have flashbacks of my days when I was traveling extensively to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. It has been quite a few years since my last visit to OBX but the trip and the landscape is unforgettable. The last few miles to reach my OBX destination always ended up with me traveling at night on coastal NC 12 that took you to the southern portion of the island. Traveling on the highway from I-65 to Orange Beach provided me with a similar feel and perspective.

I am not exactly sure why thoughts of OBX were ignited but it could have been the fact that it has been almost a year since my last trip to Perdido and much longer for any visit to the Outer Banks. In a lot of ways, the two coasts are very similar in “look and attitude” and I have very fond memories of both. To me, spending time on the ocean and the gulf is so much a part of my childhood memories and so much a part of my adult years that I find myself constantly dreaming of dipping my toes in the sand.

While spending two glorious days in Perdido enjoying my visit and spending time on the beach I could not help but think back to some very fond times spent in North Carolina on the beaches of the Outer Banks – fondly called OBX. I guess I just need to find some time to get back there.
