Thank you Anne, Alandra and May - it's taking me a bit to get ussed to this new format - shows how long I've been out of the loop! I love this area of the Outer Banks - I'm always recommending it to other Workampers. Vicki

Bautiful and artistic!! I can hear the cry of the birds as they fly and the sound of the water lapping against the shore - those beautiful white caps comin' in! The fence just doesn't seem as strong as those breakers? coming in. *g* But so very beautiful. Could sit and watch, relax and daydream for a while - to that wonderful sound of water lapping against the shore!! Beautiful picture!

wonderful scene, Vicki, looks like a lovely painting. I just read your entry of July 1st, am sorry I didn't see this before, so I'd have had better idea "where you were" : )
and I had been wondering about your grandson, but hadn't seen him mentioned anywhere, (til more recently when you posted pics of him) -- so didn't like to ask earlier. Must have missed this photo when so concerned re my Mum.
very interesting reading about the Workamping experience. thanks for sharing Vicki. ttyl. keep in touch. Alandra

Hey - That's MY OCEAN!
Guess I'll always be a Yankee!

Thank you - it's fun to walk along this beach in the morning and see what new shells and stones come to light. The water temperatures are in the mid 70's - quite balmy for the Atlantic

WOW!! very nice shot.

Thank you - it is fascinating. I grew up along the Pacific Ocean - for some reason, the Atlantic through this stretch doesn't smell as salty, but the winds are more fierce, so the shoreline always looks different. It's a great place to fly my kites - but I'm not courageous or agile enough to try the popular kite boarding!
Mary, I'm Workamping at Camp Hatteras in Rodanthe/Waves through Labor Day at least. Some of us (like me) work 40 hours a week - others work 3 - 4 days. In exchange we get a full hookup camp site, utilities and WiFi (when it's working) and even free laundry AND are paid a nominal amount with 2 days off to go exploring. There are 30 of us Workamping here this summer who are all really loving it.
From here we'll head to Michigan and Indiana to have a few minor tweaks looked at on our new fifth wheel and visit my family and brand new grandson (born June 21).
We'll go to Florida from there to get some business seen to and visit Mike's family, then off to another location in the country to Workamp and get more in-depth photos.
Until recently, the majority of Workampers were retirees looking to travel and supplement their income - or volounteer their services while traveling North America. Since RVs started becoming more popular after 9/11, even that age group is younger, and many couples and families and couples are enjoying this life style. There are also more seasonal workers traveling this way during their slow seasons. Big money it isn't, but the experience is invaluable and never boring.
