Spanic Boys 'Spanic Boys'
After a full day’s worth of writhing around in pain instead of visiting Ocracoke, it was time to pack up and leave for home.
We discussed checking out the Blackbeard artifacts at a Nautical Museum in Wilmington. I had some visions of spending a day and night there… Checking out the Blackbeard stuff by day and finding a cool watering hole by night within stumbling distance of lodging. Since we had to keep expenses down, we ditched the staying over and thought about leaving the Outer banks by way of Ocracoke. We’d take a ferry over to Cedar Island and drive to Wilmington. But we really didn’t want to spend 16 hours working our way home with that detour… So we ditched it entirely for perhaps another day.
Since I have to pack my bags for a week away (I’ll try to update while I’m gone), I’ll leave you with some of the pictures (the ones I snapped) from our trip.
We found a cool cemetery by the Pamlico Sound. I took some shots of the graveyard and some nearby fishers. And I took what turned out to be a great shot of Jamie in a replica hanger at the Wright Brothers monument in Kitty Hawk. I also took some of Jamie while we were taking our last look at the Atlantic Ocean.
Again, I’ll try to update during the next week… And as always, thanks for the visitation.
