Of all the hills you can throw yourself down I guess this one isn’t so bad.
Literally looks like a house.
North Carolina has beaches for miles.
It’s hard to imagine a time before flight, but at the same time flight itself feels really miraculous.
North Carolina’s Outer Banks.
Summer’s just around the corner.
It’s not one of the more iconic lighthouses of the outer banks (like Cape Hateras or Bodie Island) but the diminutive Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse on Roanoke Island (yeah, that Roanoke) has a certain charm.
The Cape Hatteras light house, though not quite in its original location, is a pretty iconic site (and sight) in the Outer Banks. Too bad you can’t climb it in the early spring!
I love the lighthouses in the outer banks but I’ll have to come back later in the season so that I can climb the towers!
Even in early march the sandy beaches of the outer banks are really spectacular.
At the Wright Brothers National Memorial in the Outer Banks there’s a bronze statue of the launching of the Wright flyer. From the top of the hill overlooking the scene its hard to tell the difference between the bronze figures and the people looking at the statue, so that they all look like little figurines.
