Mel's Diner

Outer Banks, NC

Last weekend we decided to head down to the Outer Banks for a final little getaway before I started school up again. The weather was absolutely perfect - warm, but not too humid. We stopped at this really cute 50s style diner on the way and had some delicious burgers. We spent most of time our time eating good food and hanging out in the pools at the hotel (yes, pools plural). My favorite was the lazy river pool. Who doesn't love to just sit back and relax on a floatie while the current pushes you? We also walked down to the beach for a bit, which was right behind the hotel. On Sunday morning we planned to wake up and watch the sunrise over the ocean, which neither Andy or I have done, but it was cloudy so we went back to sleep after the 6 a.m. alarm (I wasn't complaining). All in all, it was a fun, relaxing weekend. Just what we needed before things get busy again!
