"Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset." Saint Francis De Sales

Winter at OBX

Yesterday we drove down to Duck, N.C. to spend a few days at a vacation rental house with three other couples. The trip down was great, the roads were dry and the sun was shinning all day. We met the group at Awful Arthurs restaurant for lunch. The restaurant is a great place to eat and is right across from the street from the ocean. It is a nice way to start the vacation. 
The house we rented is a beautiful three story, six bedroom home. Plenty of room and an elevator which made unloading a simple process. There are televisions with dvd's on each floor and a wifi connection. Life is good.

Our first night Dee prepared lasagna with meatballs, sausage and ribs. It was a great meal. 

The wine collection includes a variety of blends, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, malbec, pinot noir, beaujolais and riesling. Fortunately we have a sufficient supply for the week.
The sun is shinning and the temperature is suppose to be in the low 40's. There is very little snow and I figure it will slowly disappear as each day passes.

There are no real plans for today although I am thinking about checking out Our Lady of the Seas Catholic Church. The pastor is Father Bob Brown, OSFS (Oblate of St. Francis De Sales). Ergo my reason for the visit.  

Tonight we dine at the Colington Cafe. I'll report on that tomorrow.
