Travel Tuesday: OBX

The Outer Banks of NC (OBX) is a chain of barrier islands on the coast.  When a hurricane is approaching NC, this is where Jim Cantore and the Weather Channel setup shop.

It is miles of pristine beaches, unbelievable homes and quaint shops and restaurants.  Small towns with names like Kitty Hawk, Corolla, Nags Head, and Kill Devil Hills. It is not nearly as commercialized as Virginia Beach or Myrtle Beach.  Is is mostly vacationing families and rental homes.  And the site of the Wright Brothers first flight.  And herds of wild horses.

It was also the site of my first half marathon!  And my fourth.  And I am trying to make it my ninth.

Google OBX, or vacation rentals in OBX, or like me right now PET FRIENDLY vacation rentals in OBX.

More pictures for fun….

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
