Picture of the Week

It’s Fan Photo Friday!

Thank you to Charles B. Richardson for submitting this beautiful rainbow over Salvo on Hatteras Island accompanied by a very touching story. How could we choose another photo over this one?

“For a number of years our entire family has vacationed at OBX. The picture shown here is the first year after my Mother-in-Law Kathy passed away. She loved rainbows and our first day there we got a double rainbow. It showed us that even though she wasn’t with us that year, she really was.” – Charles B. Richardson
