This morning we are a little distracted here at Sandbridge Blue as Hurricane Maria churns to our south and is slowly moving north. We’ve been through a lot of storms here in Sandbridge over the years, but we always perk up a bit when there is one coming as close as this one is predicted to be. In the meantime we present to you another Memory Monday photo submission and this one we will call sun and moon.
Greetings on this Patriot’s day 2017. Those of us old enough to remember know what happened 16 years ago today, and we take this time to pause and remember those who were lost that day, as well as to honor those who put themselves in harm’s way to save others on that fateful day. I remember where I was on that morning when that plane crashed on live television (I was listening to Imus in the Morning on WFAN Radio in New York City as I was driving to work that day). The nation would never be the same again.
There is nothing more exciting than the week before you go on a vacation. You begin to think about all the fun you will have and how relaxing it will be to get away for a whole week. What people don’t always expect is how stressful it can be to make sure you have everything taken care of in preparation for the trip. It’s easy to forget things when you’re scrambling around the day before you leave to make sure everything is good to go. Here are 5 things to double check before leaving on vacation.
Putt Putt Anyone?
Happy Easter Monday to everyone. We hope you enjoyed a fabulous weekend of egg hunting, and church going in the beautiful weather we all enjoyed. Temps reached the 90 degree mark here in Sandbridge yesterday on Easter, and the folks vacationing enjoyed all manner of outdoor activities, including some putt putt golf!
So this week marks the official start of the 3 week malaise known as March Madness. Whether you pull for the Cavaliers of UVa or the Eagles of Winthrop, or any of the other 66 teams in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament we are sure you are as excited as us to see what happens over the next few weeks. Good luck to everyone’s teams!
Sun over the water
Happy Monday everyone! We hope you made today a great day as we did here in Sandbridge. Every Monday we share with you all a photo submitted by one of our valued guests, and today’s photo is a real winner.
Take a leap!
Well on this Monday we want to wish all of those lovers out there an early Happy Valentine’s day. We hope you have a day filled with the love you deserve.
The Outer Banks are stretches of peninsulas and barrier islands that run 200 miles along the coast of North Carolina and Virginia. The Outer Banks strand actually begins in Virginia with the 4.5-mile long Sandbridge Beach. Because Sandbridge Beach is backed by Currituck Sound to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, its geography is similar to that of the North Carolina Outer Banks. That similarity (and also cultural similarities) have earned Sandbridge Beach the nickname “The Outer Banks of Virginia.” For those who love the remote, untamed, and relaxed atmosphere of North Carolina’s Outer Banks, Sandbridge Beach is a must-see.
Sunrise from the beach!
There is nothing like a sunrise on the water in the summer, and this week’s Memory Monday photo submission comes to us from Nichole Sellitto of Susquehanna, Pennsylvania who stayed with Blue last June and captured the beautiful early morning shot coming up over the Atlantic Ocean.
Greetings on a warm and overcast Monday here in Sandbridge. It is still very quiet here, but we are taking lots of bookings for the 2017 summer season and we are all looking forward to warm weather staying for just one day.
