Day 5 of the Bowser family vacation, lighthouses

A travel blog entry by bambinmike

Today we woke up in Kitty Hawk and drove the full length of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore of the Outer Banks to see the light houses and beaches.

We have no idea who it was but Mike seems to think it was Elvis and Michael Jackson performing a duet. We saw the Bodie Island Lighthouse, ...

We continued on for the rest of the day, almost always surrounded by dunes as we travelled the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Another 40 minute ferry ride took us from Cape Hatteras to Ocracoke Island. We drove the length of Ocracoke and came to our hotel (booked in advance) the ...
