Day 1 of Outer Banks

Saturday, October 31. We had set the alarm for 3:30. After loading the car, letting dogs out and feeding them, we left our house at 4:15 a.m. for Doug and Beths'. Everyone was on time and we were on the road to Kansas City by 5 a.m. Upon arrival at KCI we learned our flight had been delayed and we could still possibly make our scheduled fllight as it was only two gates over but they also booked us on a 6 p.m. flight out of Newark.

Flying into Newark I saw the New York skyline and the Statue of Liberty. Our flight attendant said our out-going flight was also probably delayed. Unfortunately I think it was the only flight on time that day out of Newark. After three gate changes, pizza, beers, and margaritas, our outgoing flight left at 7:15 p.m. We landed in Norfolk around 8:30 p.m. After getting the luggage and rental car, we didn't make it to the Outer Banks until almost 11 p.m.

Our hosts, Chris and Topher had wine waiting for us when we got here and were awaiting news on the birth of their new grandson.
