Outer Banks Bucket List

What’s YOUR Gotta Do?

I am sure most people remember the 2007 movie, The Bucket List, a Rob Reiner movie starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, about two terminally ill men who came up with a list of things they had to do before they "kicked the bucket". It was a charming movie about two men trying to see/do all of these things they always wanted to do, but never had time/money and settling on the fact that, in the end, family is what mattered most.

I must confess that I totally absconded with this idea from friends, Marcel and Leanne Finnegan, who have a site about vacationing in the Canadian Rockies. Marcel has a great story about a grandmother and her grandson and about the two's desire to stay in a chateau in the Rockies. I have no such great story, but I did really like the idea. In fact, I even asked for some help from some Twitter friends on what would be on their Outer Banks list.

How about you? Is there some Outer Banks sightseeing you want to do? Or maybe parasailing in the sound? What are the things you know you want to do and just haven't gotten to yet? So join in and send me a note on Twitter @OBRevealed, or send me a note via our contact page. I will add your ideas to this list.

My Outer Banks Bucket List

  • When the Bodie Lighthouse is repaired, take a trip to the top to see sunrise and sunset. It must be an awesome view given its location right by Oregons Inlet.

  • Take the ferry to Ocracoke and spend the day to see what all the raving is about.

  • Meet Joyce and Carl Bornfriend of the Frisco Native American Museum. Joyce was very helpful when I wrote about her museum and grounds, and their story so intrigues me that I want to meet them. Update: I did get to the Museum(some pretty interesting stuff), but Joyce wasn't there so it stays on my list.
