Walking the line between nerd and cool.

Rain, Rain, Go away!

It pretty much rained all day yesterday.  There was a small window in the evening that it wasn’t raining, but we didn’t go down to the beach at all.

To escape the rain, we decided to go to the aquarium.  Of course, every tourist in the Outer Banks had that same idea.  We got there through the torrential downpour, saw the line to get in, and decided to turn around.  So we went down to the waterfront in Manteo for lunch.  Stopped in at Poor Richard’s Sandwich Shop.  It was good but not great.

Later that evening, it was off to Miller’s Waterfront Restaurant.  I had local Yellowfin Tuna and Seafood Bisque.  They were both not nearly as good as I would expect for the price I paid.  After returning home, the evening was spent playing Ticket to Ride and watching the Baby Borrowers. 

This morning, it’s off to watch Justin jet ski, then probably to the beach.  We’ve got one more date with the Putt-Putt course at some point today.  Surprisingly, no reading yesterday, so you’ll have to wait to hear more from the book.  :)  Also, I added a few pics to our vacation album:

  1. Geez, you should have emailed or called. We’ve been to OBX 7 times so we’ve got a line on some of the better restaurants. If you get back to Manteo eat at Darryls for seafood. Really reasonable prices, without the fancy decor. I think it’s on Virginia Dare road – the main drag of the island. Also you should look at taking the jetboat to do Dolphin watching. We’ve been twice and it’s great!!

    Baby Borrowers? Sounds scary!

    I remember Manteo. That’s where the Jetboat actually departs from to do the dolphin watch. There are a lot of shops there anyway… Sorry the weather is not cooperating. I heard about the torrential rain in Raleigh but did not realize it hit the Outer Banks. What I was concerned about was Hurricane Bertha. If nothing else, you’ll get some awesome waves for boogie boarding–if it hurries up and gets there already.
