on the way home, we saw a sign for a covered bridge, we thought it would be a nice detour. It probably took us an hour to find the bridge, it was way off the main road. So by time we got there we were hungry and we had a nice little break, with lunch and a walk in the creek, while we were there.

On the boat, the boys learned to tie sailors knots, swab the deck, raise the anchor

We went to the Outer Banks after going to the Symposium that Richard received free tickets to when he received the honored reward of Medic of the Year.
We took a ferry out to Ocracoke Island http://www.ocracokeisland.com/
We stopped to see the Ocracoke Lighthouse, you can only get so close, it's blocked off. But it is beautiful. Ocracoke was my favorite island, it's quaint.
We watched kite surfers.
We camped right on the beach, big mistake, very windy, we hardly got any sleep.
We played on the beach
We went to the Cape Hatteras Light Station
We climbed to the top 150 steps in a spiral, boy I was dizzy when we got to the top. But what a viewWe stopped at the Bodie Island Lighthouse, again you can't go up, but we could get pretty close.
The beaches were great, no one else on them.
