Nights in Rodanthe

Dave and I just got back from our annual summer vacation to Rodanthe, NC in the Outer Banks. We rented a little beach house near the ocean with my parents and our doggie, Sampson. Our trip consisted of sunbathing on the beach all day, making the 'difficult' decision of which seafood restaurant to eat at each night, taking Sampson for walks on the beach, and seeing which of us could stuff our bellies with the most food. :-) It was so relaxing! Here are a few pictures from our trip:

So, I remember seeing the preview for the movie, 'Nights in Rodanthe' and being so excited for the simple fact that my family and I have been camping and renting beach houses in Rodanthe, N.C. for the past 20 years. Rodanthe is such a small town on Cape Hatteras Island that very few people have actually heard of it so it was shocking to me that they filmed a movie in this small beach town. We happened to be in one of the local shops and I spotted t-shirts that read "I spent a night in Rodanthe" with a picture of the beach house from the movie. (SEE PICTURE BELOW)

I remember asking Dave what sucker would blow $12.00 on a t-shirt with a picture of the 'Nights in Rodanthe' house on it

So, yeah........I was one of those people who got suckered into buying the t-shirt on the last day I was there. Looks like I stuck my foot in my mouth on that one.
