The Outer Banks






During spring break at Duke, we took a little trip to the outer banks of NC. We drove the 4.5 hours out, went to the beach and stayed the night in Kill Devil Hills, where the Wright Brothers flew the first aircraft. It is still the off season so we got a great rate on the motel. The next morning when we were getting ready for another day of adventure, we ran into our friends, Morgan and Emily Stinson. They were staying at the same place....imagine that. We spent a fun day with them that included seeing the Wright Brothers museum, lighthouses, Ft. Raleigh, Roanoke Island, the beach, and Festival Park (pirate heaven). It was a fun little trip. Ethan got a kick out of all the sights, the sand and playing with the safe in the motel room!
