a few weeks ago all of us headed to the outerbanks, less our sweet gg, who stayed at casa de maria and lucia. we were all so excited we even decided to early, just get out of dodge and head east. the "bourban" was packed to the gills with all our toys. the first 2 night we planned to stay in a motel and then move into the cottage we rented for a week after that. long story short, on arrival we were horrified by my choice of motels. unfortunately, we had to suck it up one night but then off to the beacon motor lodge!
