NOVEMBER 20, 2013 (Wednesday)
Got up and discovered it was sunny outside. Looked lovely. Michael wanted to blow the dust out of our hair so we got dressed and moving. First stop – Duck Donuts. Had to have them one more time before we leave. They are soooo good and soooo bad for us. Michael and I even broke down and got some coffee and were both surprised that it didn’t taste as good as we remembered.
After breakfast, Michael and I decided to go to the Visitor’s Center and see what all there was to do here. Lexi decided to stay in her home. Once we talked to the people in the Visitor’s Center, we decided to go for it and go to Cape Hatteras Light Station. We were almost there the other day but stopped about twenty miles shy. (It’s about an hour and a half drive.) It was really windy and was weird to see the sand blowing like snow across the road. Also, strange to see the sand plows instead of snow plows.
We stopped at a turnout and watched a person kite surfing. It was really amazing in that there were lots of white caps and he was flying about twenty feet into the air. He was good. I’d be afraid I’d end up out in the ocean and couldn’t find my way back to land.
We drove to the end of the road, past the lighthouse, then started back North. While driving to the Cape Hatteras Light Station we saw an “alien house” that I thought Michael would like. He said it wasn’t his idea of his dream home.
Once at the Cape Hatteras Light Station we got out and took pictures. The fog was moving in quickly and the temperature was starting to drop. It is a lovely light house. Would have loved to have been able to climb to the top but they close them down during the slow season. We got to climb the one in Corolla only because it’s privately owned.
On the drive home we stopped at the Walmart to get the fixings for a chicken salad Michael is making. That was our day. Hope yours was great!
