Beautiful weather in Nags Head, Outer Banks NC

Tare Heel Motel, Nags Head Outer Banks

The weather this weekend has been a peek into what the summer has in store for us. Took a stroll around 10:00 am this morning on the beach and it was already reaching into the 80's. The ocean was clear and sparkling, I expected the ocean to be freezing but it was actually not so bad with ocean water temperature at 67 °F. Waves were chest high yesterday not so much today. None the less, surfers were out south of Jennette's Pier and sunbathers were stretched out getting rays as far as the eye could see.

A few more weeks until Memorial Day Weekend means a few more weeks at off season pricing. Now is the perfect time for that weekend getaway. Waiting for the holiday weekend for some beach time? Memorial Day Weekend is almost booked out for us at the Tar Heel, so if you haven't booked yet better do it soon!

April leaves with hoorahs and hooks!

We had a blow out weekend at the Tar Heel Motel! The last weekend of April marked the ending of the Outer Banks Bike Week. We had bikes lining one side of the motel and trucks with fishing poles lining the other! The weather was not the best over the weekend but both bikers and fisherman alike were troopers and the weekend turned out to be a lot of fun for everyone.

Our fishing group went out Saturday morning on the Fishin' Frenzy and it was not an easy ride. What they brought in was well worth the bumpy ride out there however. Eddie was kind enough to send us a few pictures and what a catch! They brought in just under 300 lbs of fish, not bad for a rainy and blustery day. Tuna and Dolphin where the catch of the day and by the smiles on these guys it made up for any ugly weather. Thanks for the pics Eddie, we will be posting these on the Tar Heel Motel's Facebook Brag Spot album.
