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.
