Goodbye to the Outer Banks

Today we did a little bit more exploring around the northern Outer Banks. We visited some very unique and charming stores, several of them have the works of local artists for sale. We wish we could contribute to these talented artists but who needs any more stuff in an rv, right?

One of the stores we visited was called The Peanut Shop and we got to sample about 15 different flavors. Very interesting, to say the least.

Then we drove towards the mainland. Along the way we noticed each gas station’s prices were lower than the one before, and were very surprised, the cheapest one we saw was $3.61 today.

We drove over two hours towards Murfreesboro NC, where their 23rd annual Watermelon Festival starts tomorrow. We found the festival grounds and parked right next door for the night, so we can be here when the festivities start tomorrow.


  1. Enjoyed reading your blog. Your rig looks like our first one 5years ago. we just got the new rig in March. Enjoyed the first every minute we had it. Never was a dual minute in it. Was on the road all 5 years with it. Go all over the good Old U.S.A.
