This is a bumper sticker that is displayed around here a lot—not just by people who live here but also by people who visit from all over the country. So if you ever happen to be driving along in your part of the world and see someone sporting this sticker, be sure to smile at them and wave wildly in our honor. (Which, of course, will totally confuse them. But that’s okay.)
And speaking of people visiting from all over the country, it’s cool to read comments saying that some of you:
- Have visited the OBX
- Are thinking of visiting somewhere down the road
- Are definitely visiting this summer
How fun is that?
And since we’re on that particular topic, I thought that this would be a good time to revisit something I wrote last year.
Steve and I love meeting new people and making new friends and we would be delighted to meet any of you who are planning a trip to our lovely area.
However, it does put us in a bit of an awkward situation because even though we might be aware that a Smithellaneous reader is coming here, we really have no idea whether or not said reader would even be remotely interested in meeting us. I realize that it might not be too terribly exciting to try and have to make room for “Meeting Those Smithellaneous Folks” on your vacation To Do List when you have so many other cool things to do.
So here’s the deal. Even though we might know you’re planning a trip here, we are going to assume that you are perfectly happy vacationing out here without being contacted by a blogging OBX-er.
However, if one or two of you should find it mildly intriguing to meet up with us, we will leave that decision entirely up to you. You’re welcome to shoot an email to smithellaneous AT yahoo.com and let me know when you’ll be here and that you’d like to try and get together. We’ll do our best to work it out to meet you for a piece of pie (or something less caloric) at one of our local eateries.
We’re already looking forward to meeting for the first time two of our wonderful Smithellaneous readers (a mother and daughter from England) who will be here in June. It’s so much fun to meet people from all over!
(By the way, Buff left a comment yesterday about fun things to do on the OBX; I copied it to the bottom of yesterday’s post to make it a bit more visible.)
In my next post, I’ll be writing about our very own Royal Couple, AKA Nathan and Meagan. You won’t want to miss it.
I’ll close with a few pictures of this area from my archives, just in case you‘re in need of a quick, virtual vacation. (And aren’t we all?)
And lastly? Here’s Snowy, the Grumpy OBX-er.
