Busy Beach Weekend

The Memorial Day weekend is in full swing on the Outer Banks. Friday, the Avalon Pier was fully laced with rod and line by breakfast as eager vacationers didn't wait to get down to the business of relaxation. Meantime, local residents are preparing for the procession of minivans and SUVs from our northern neighbors Saturday. And the people we talked with on the OBX didn't seem to let the high gas prices stop them from making the trip.
