Looks like the Outer Banks agrees with you. I am having a less than good day (drain 4 is a problem now) and this picture just put a huge smile on my face! Thanks for sharing. Wishing you sunny weather, safe travels and the joys of continuing to meet friends in person.

Chrissy,

I just found this today, and had a great time following your travels.  Three weeks from tomorrow I'll get to meet you.  SO excited!  I know you're having a wonderful time.  Keep up the good work with the posts and photos.  There was a little snow on the top of Pikes Peak a few days ago.  Sure you want to make the trip?  ha, ha.  I'm going to get the tickets this week.  We'll bundle up and get homemade donuts and coffee at the top!

Hi girls!   Oh yes I'm having an absolute ball on the Outer Banks and I shall be posting pics and updating in a day or two so you can all catch up on what I've been up to.....lol......and that is LOTS!!!!!

Hey Scuba, sorry to hear that those drains are giving you a whole heap of trouble and I sure do hope they get sorted soon.   They really are a pain, literally and figuratively!

Chilovr, I will be in Hollywood, Florida from the 15th to the 22nd September.  As BarbA said we are getting together for lunch on the 17th but I'm not sure where.  If you asked Barb, I'm sure she would let you know and you could perhaps join us if it's not too far.  I'd love to see you!

Irr4993, unfortunately Atlanta is a transit stop over only and not very long ones at that.   It is unfortunate as I would have loved to visit with everyone but it is just not logistically possible.

Goldie, I was the only one who didn't end up with sand in the panties...LOL!!!  There has to be a first time for everything and I think that was it!....hahahahaha!

Kathleen, I am having a perfectly wonderful time thank you and thank you for your compliment.

Lane that sounds just perfect and then I can truly say that I experienced most seasons on my travels......lol.   Looking forward to seeing you!

Lisa, I will be flying into L.A. and I will be there four days before departing for Auckland, New Zealand.  Not sure yet what the movements will be while there but I'm sure we could sort something out.

Stay tuned!!!

Love n hugs.  Chrissy

No worries, Chrissy.  If you were stopping in Atlanta I would be surprised.  It is great city to live in, but does not have a lot to offer in terms of tourism. Glad you are getting to see some beautiful coastal areas!  Enjoy the rest of your trip!!!
