|We stayed two nights in the lovely and quiet little town of Manteo on the sound-side |
of the Outer Banks at The Outdoors Inn B&B.
|A view of our rental car as it takes a ride with us on the Ocracoke Island Ferry. The free 45-minute boat ride from Hatteras was a lot of fun and afforded great views of the Pamlico Sound and the Atlantic Ocean beyond it.|
|The lovely Ashlee at the lovely Ocracoke Lighthouse.|
|A little muskrat love on Ocracoke Island.|
|The visitors center perched over the bright green, swampy water of |
the Nature Conservancy's Nags Head Preserve.
|A sound-side view from atop the Currituck Beach Light in Corolla.|
Only 214 steps needed to get to the top of the red-brick beauty.
|Tooling down NC Hwy. 12. Yep, the beach north of the town of Corolla is still considered part of the highway and it's the only way to reach a large number of rental and private beach houses located in this area.|
How much fun did we have in the Outer Banks? Well, enough, to say "Heck, yeah!" to another trip out here in mid-August. We got the same great flight deal into Norfolk and this time we are going to stay right on the beach. We might even try our hand at some kite-boarding??
