Of course the day we decide to take a little afternoon date to the Outer Banks it rains. And by rain, I mean cold, pouring rain. The closest we got to the beach was The Weeping Radish Brewery (which is still about 30 minutes away), so we stopped for lunch, a beer and some Olympics.
We stopped at a few farmer's markets on the way back to peruse their overpriced produce and random selection of beach necessities.... Poor tourists...ha.
I'm giving us an "A" for effort, and will go ahead and cross off #13 and #39 from the list. Hey, it's my list...I can do what I want :)
