I was actually going to post a photo not from the Outer Banks today but this popped up in my memories so I thought why not. In all our trips to the Outer Banks this was the only time we saw the wild horses on the beach. We have seen the wild horses every time but usually back among the houses in the 4 wheel drive area. The horse tour is my favorite part of the whole trip.

One of the things we did last week one evening was play putt putt golf. There is a cute Corolla themed putt putt place in Corolla. Complete with a mini lighthouse, Whalehead Club, and wild horses. This is newer since we started going to the Outer Banks but this was our second time playing there. I’m not good at putt putt golf but we had fun. It was a windy night the night we played so that made it a little interesting. I do think the wind helped with some of the movements of a few of the putts. But we had fun, that’s all that matters. The next time I play putt putt will probably be the next time I’m in the Outer Banks.
My favorite vacation spot for relaxing is the Outer Banks of NC. To me it is a little piece of paradise! We always go in October so it is so peaceful and quite. The Outer Banks has wild horses, lighthouses, beautiful sunrises, and even more beautiful sunsets. Summer in the Outer Banks is a little crazy but fall is just perfect, especially for taking it easy at the beach! I can’t wait to go back to the Outer Banks!
So my longing to go to Rapid City got me thinking. If I won the lottery and could live anywhere I want and be able to work from home, I would want to live Mid-May to Mid-September in Rapid City and Mid-September to Mid-May in The Outer Banks of NC. I love both places! They are both beautiful in their own right. The Outer Banks has the ocean, wild horses and peacefulness. Rapid City has rolling hills, buffalo that roam, and peacefulness. I wouldn’t want to do the winters in Rapid City because of the snow and I wouldn’t want to do the summers in the Outer Banks because of the crowds. By living like that I would have the best of both worlds. I would have a Condo in Rapid City and a Beach House in the Outer Banks. It would be so cool to spend Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years on the beach and to spend Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day at Mount Rushmore. It might never happen but a Southern Belle can dream! Dream about living the Perfect Life.
