It’s an OBXmas light show

obxmas_lights_10Zander and I headed to the Outer Banks on Saturday, December 14 for an overnight trip. We managed to skirt the rain sweeping across North Carolina. We left Raleigh during a break in the weather and only had to deal with light rain and drizzle for some of the trip. We had a holiday treat waiting for us once we arrived.

We made a visit to a house nearby on the 300 block of Clamshell Drive in Kill Devil Hills that is very decorated for the holidays. It’s just like one of those houses you’ve watched on YouTube (see mine below). The entire front yard is decorated and the lights are synchronized to holiday music. Of course, it wouldn’t be an OBXmas without some Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Enjoy some of these pictures and happy holidays from the OBX!
