Good morning Tuesday!
OH boy, you guys! You should have seen the weather we had here yesterday. Torrential downpour, flooded areas, destroyed cars (due to flooding), rain, rain, thunder and more rain.
Totally crazy summer storm.
I feel so bad for people who got caught in it, or people that lost their cars.
As I am writing this, I have no idea whether people got hurt in it, or not.
Today, we are going to return to the OBX.
Let us take a little look at some houses there. And, let us take a look at the house we were renting this year.
This year our house was in a very good location, so close to the beach and the beach access path.
The house itself could need a little TLC. At first look--when we walked in-- I thought it was underwhelming (to say the least), but as the week progressed, it grew on me.
The lower level (in particular) had that distinctive, musty old summer house smell, you all know what I am talking about.
The house does need updating, more ambiance and lamps and it needs better kitchen equipment. It also needs better deck furniture.
BUT, it is a fully functional house with GOOD and friendly vibes. All it needs is a little loving from its owners.
It is not a cheap house to rent, let me tell you. It is the most run down house we have had but the most expensive (location, location).
Our house for the duration.
Lots of stairs.
We always rent a new house (to us) every year.
It is fun to discover "new" houses. We have a couple of must-haves on our list such as, three bedrooms, ocean side, private pool and a hot tub.
Interior pics. Kitchen overlooking dining area and stairs to lower level.
Living room. How'd ya like the 80's art on the wall? HAHA.
Game room, and three other bedrooms on this level. Keith was sleeping, so no pics from his room. I am sure he is happy I did not wake him.
Deck on lower level.
Here are some other houses you’ll find in the Rodanthe-Salvo area.
Here is a house with its hurricane shutters closed. ALL houses have hurricane shutters. A must in this area. When a hurricane comes along you have got to protect ALL windows. OBX gets more than its fair share of hurricanes.
Houses with crows nest, or widow's walks (roof top decks), are very common. I love these kinds of decks.
Some houses are HUGE!!
Others are small ...
And this concludes this year’s stay in Rodanthe-Salvo.
Thanks for following along! It means a lot to me!
All these houses are next to the ocean. Prime real estate!
Another big-ass house.
Here we have a serious fisher on vacation!!
Have a good Tuesday!
Rodanthe beach houses ... these are literally next to the ocean.
