I don't know about you, but I always look forward to and thoroughly enjoy having dinner with a few good friends. It's especially nice when you can all go on a retreat to a place like the Outer Banks of North Carolina for a week, enjoy beautiful surroundings, a comfortable place to stay and sharing the time and food you all enjoy.
This photo was on one such retreat with a group of my long-time single friends from Winchester, Virginia. I have a friend who owns a timeshare in a very nice beach house in Duck on the North Carolina Outer Banks or OBX, as it's abbreviated. From time to time he and his family have other commitments and can't use some of their allotted weeks at the beach house, so he makes it available to his friends. I've taken advantage of this opportunity on several occasions during different seasons of the year. This particular retreat was in early to mid September, a perfect time with beautiful weather, great temperatures and NO CROWDS!
