We stopped to get a fishing licence and they had this huge Adirondack chair out front. I had to test it out.
Our first stop was the Currituck Lighthouse. It is located on the northern part of the Outer Banks, in the town of Corolla.
We climbed the 214 steps to the top and enjoyed a great view of the ocean and sound.
After the climb we picked up some picnic supplies and headed to grounds around the lighthouse. We watched the sunset and marveled at the beauty that surrounded us.
We stayed at the Hampton Inn just down the road and relaxed on our balcony over looking the ocean.
In the morning we woke to watch the sun rise. (Yes, Jule I got up!) We walked along the beach and snapped pictures.
They persevered though so many trials. It was an amazing story to relearn as an adult. I really didn't pay to much attention in school.
We walked the grounds where they built and flew the plane. Their first flight was only 12 seconds long.
They had markers for each of the flights.
Next we went to Roanoke Island and saw the light house in the harbor.
Then it was on to the Cape Hatteras National Seashore and the Bodie Lighthouse.
|We were'not leaving. The light was better on this side of the sign.|
We ended the day at a local fishing pier.
Tomorrow I will share our final two days of our road trip.
Thanks for stopping by........
