Welcome! I hope your visit here contributes to your beautiful day. I want to remind you . . .

“Every day we are alive is a beautiful day.” – Debra Parmley

Life on a sandbar is as close to living on a beach as you can be and living on the beach had long been one of my dreams. My husband and I spent last summer living in the Outer Banks of North Carolina in Rodanthe, for the 2022 season.

Shipwreck uncovered after the Nor’easter in May 2022 off-ramp 27, the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

Currently, we are living in Kentucky near Lake Cumberland while our motorhome is being repaired and I’m back to writing full-time.

Beautiful Day Traveler is Debra Parmley’s RV Travel Blog. https://beautifuldaytraveler.wordpress.com/ You will find posts from their 109-day western U.S. trip in 2021 and posts from her summer in the Outer Banks as she gets caught up on posts. She has also started working on her first travel memoir about their first year on the road.
