Along the short sandy trek from the parking lot to the boardwalks, dunes begin to dominate the concrete landscape, grasses taking the place of hardwood trees and overhanging Spanish moss. The coarse sound of wind through the tightly-knit, leafy Southern Red Oaks and Green Ashes is replaced with gentle rustling. Hardly available in Virginia Beach, the serenity beachgoers can find amongst the grassy dunes and virtually isolated shoreline is a special reminder of the Outer Banks; truly, it is the perfect local getaway from a hectic lifestyle, otherwise difficult to find alongside the constant daily interruptions of e-mails, notifications, and telephone calls. A watchful mother lounges on the coastline, sight set on her children enjoying the calm water, enjoying this relaxing escape from a busy routine.March 18, 2013 Like Add a Comment
