The only problem with vacations is that they end rather too soon. The empirical rule is that however long the vacation is , it is always three days shorter than what it should be. Switching off the work-mode was surprisingly tougher than what I thought but the beautiful location helped!

The highlight of this vacation —atleast for me— was not any of the activities we indulged in or the beautiful beaches or the company (awesome though each of them were). The beauty of the trip was the cottage we rented. We found a lovely beach house right on the banks of the Sound at Outer Banks with an affordable rent & a million dollar view. Surrounded by water on three sides, the house was literally 10 steps away from the water. In the distance we could see the Roanoke island with its towns of Manteo &  Wanchese and golden sands of Jockey Rodge State Park.

Jim—the live-in owner of the house was away for this long weekend and decided to rent out his residence to us while he visited family. The living room had long windows that looked out on to the water, sitting in the living room seemed like we were right on the sea, it was like going on a ocean cruise without leaving your home.  We could see bea

utiful sunsets right from the living room. The first sound we heard on waking up was the sounds of the water lapping the shores.  You couldn’t help but feel happy when you see this wonderful view every day!
