We have taken Lacy to the Outer Banks many times. We usually stay in Salvo, where there aren't a lot of people on the beach even in the middle of summer. Lacy loves the beach, and romps through the waves and digs big holes in the sand. In the summer, we limit her time on the beach to morning and late afternoon since the sand and sun are way too hot in the middle of the day. Even though we don't allow Lacy to drink the salt water, she does end up ingesting some while she plays in the waves, and this always causes major stomach issues for a day or two, so be prepared for some hurried trips out to the yard for bathroom breaks!
