the houses of the outer banks

June 7, 2011 |  Category:   press travels

Oh, did you think we were done with vacation photos? I have a few more posts lined up, if you don’t mind. Nothing much is going on back here in NY anyway except I’m still trying to get my bearings on jumping back into the swing of things. Summer is most definitely here, though.

So…these crazy colored houses. During our stay we joked that the house we were renting was like an M.C. Escher house because the house was all stairwells in the back and front off the exterior porches on every level. The kids would run down one side of the house and disappear and I’d have no idea which end of the house they’d end up in, and I’d go down one staircase and end up in a place I wasn’t expecting. I’m not used to multi-level living like this, but we all did get a workout going up and down 3 flight of stairs all day long.

PS. thanks friends, for alerting me to the Australian Sunday paper write up we were in. I got a scanned copy and it’s quite possibly the greatest piece of press we have every gotten. Not really sure whose life they’re talking about, but I want it.

    Love the photos! Oz write up so funny. Think Oscar Wilde sums it up well…“The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.” Accuracy is an overrated feature : )

    It’s so different from Belgium sea front… I love these houses !

    Those houses are amazing! They’re huge!! And the colours are just lovely. I’ve never lived in anything larger than a 2 bedroom apartment (or anything that wasn’t grey or built from concrete, for that matter…), so these houses are like something out of a dream!

    wow….these shots are fabulous. What a lovely vacation!

    Can I ask where you stayed? What city and where you rented from? I’d love to do what you guys did some day with family. We have eight adults and seven kids (currently). Thanks!
