Outer Banks - Day 1

Sunday, August 16th, 2015

Today was the first day of our vacation in the Outer Banks. My alarm went off at 3:20am (!) in order for us to get out the door at 4:10am and to the airport at 4:30am for our 5:50am flight. The kids got up surprisingly easily and seemed to be ok with the early hour. In the car Rachelle asked Nolan if he was okay and he said, "No, Sleep!" That pretty much summed it up.

Even at 4:30 in the morning, Rochester International Airport was very busy. The line to get through security was huge. But it moved quickly and our flight took off without a problem. We were actually early landing at BWI and had to sit there and wait for a gate to open up. That was the worst of the air travel.

When I picked up the rental car in Norfolk, they upgraded me from a full-sized sedan to a Ford Expedition at no additional cost! I was super excited about having the extra room. I guess they had a bunch of big cars available and were offering to upgrade everyone. The poor kids finally got to take a nap in the car on the 90 minute drive to Nags Head. It wasn't long enough, but I guess better than nothing. 

Since we were the first to arrive in town we stopped by the rental office to pick up the keys. We were a few hours early, but the house was ready and they had no problem with the timing. The house was rented by my dad who has the same name, so I assumed I could get away with checking in for him, but they never asked for identification.

Aside from the ludicrisly early start to today, it was a great travel day. Hopefully the rest of the vacation goes as smoothly.
