Once we were all vaccinated, we decided to plan our summer vacation. We decided to drive to give us more flexibility and control. We were all vaccinated, but none of us wanted to get on a plane, rent a car, etc.
We decided to head to the Outer Banks, NC. First, we've been talking about going there for years to see the wild horses. Second, the girls started watching a show with the same name and wanted to see it.
The hardest part about vacation planning was deciding which house to rent. There were so many great places. We decided against a house right on the beach because it required a four-wheel drive vehicle. We decided to rent a house with a direct path to the beach.
Our stops to and from the Outer Banks mixed interests with college tours. We mapped out our route, packed the car and left Holly in great hands.
It was great -- and strange -- to be on the road again.
