Brindley Beach: We’ll get through this

As many of you may know, the Outer Banks has been closed to nonresidents. At this point in time, the only people allowed across the bridges onto the Outer Banks are permanent residents, workers and non-residents from adjacent counties.

It is apparent why the Dare County Control group, who made this decision, did so. In their letter addressing closing the county they wrote, “These restrictions may be inconvenient, disappointing and have financial impacts, however, they were made in the interest of public safety to limit the spread of COVID-19.”

It is a sad day for us here at Brindley Beach Vacations and for everyone on the Outer Banks. We pride ourselves in being a community that welcomes everyone to what we think is one of the most wondrous places on earth. It is, of course, how we earn a living; but it is also who and what we are.

We’ll get through this, as a community and as a nation because of who and what we are—resilient, stronger than we often think we are and able to overcome remarkable challenges.

It won’t be easy, but the sun keeps rising and setting each day and with it all those amazing colors that are part of the beauty of this special place. And soon enough, almost like magic, cars will once again be crossing the Wright Memorial Bridge and we’ll be here to welcome you.

In the meantime, we’ll still let you know what’s happening on the Outer Banks, post some pictures of its beauty and let you know that we’re doing just fine.
