Weekend #2 in OBX

We were again down in The Outer Banks again this weekend, this time camping with a bunch of other couples from our church. The weather was great and it was quite the experience. You never know what to expect when you camp. Except for the 4 extremely noisy & obnoxious peacocks that were caged on the grounds ( I wish I was kidding!) everything went smoothly and the weather was great!

dinner - yum!
Monday was spent on the beach.
