Finally got a chance to stay in the 4x4 area of the Northern outer banks for vacation. Missed a couple days due to Irene, but was able to get in on Tues thru Monday. Weather was perfect. Beach was good, but there was a lot of debris from the storm, mostly big driftwood. There were also a bunch of sea turtles and some lumber to watch out for. Had fun with the driftwood and built a lot of stuff. I would highly recommend staying there. Very relaxing.
