We were stopped at the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge parking lot because the road was closed for the filming of a music video. 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, ...

... the beach for well over an hour, finally we caught a glimpse of the owl. She was resting on the beach with her eyes closed, but not totally asleep. We got some pictures before some sea gulls started harassing her and she flew to another spot on the beach. I think a few of these gulls may have made a recent meal for her. She is a mighty hunter, but quite outnumbered by the gulls. With the Cape ...

... and a forest of post-holes (at least 417 but more likely 500 ). The finds are very early C17th and show transfer of European material to the native peoples. The prize finds we're a 1604 Nuremberg counting token and a 1kg mass of smelted copper. As so few Europeans had visited N America at this time, there are relatively few ways that the goodies could have got here.......change a few names and implements and it's just a big game of Cluedo......except much more ...

    The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. they recommended a restaurant just next door (name escapes me but the food was unforgettable).
