    ... places. We both liked the naturally weathered shake homes that were nestled in the coastal dunes. We happened to stop by a North Carolina BBQ place called Sooeey's and shared the sampler platter to get a taste of all the great types of bbq they did there. The platter came with brisket, ribs, pulled pork, fried chicken (for which they have won awards), hush puppies, coleslaw and fried okra. They had local drinks ...

    ... sunk here over the years...and hence the museum. It had a lot of cool old scuba equipment. My favorite part of recent history was some cargo ship carrying Doritos dropped a few containers and tons of bags of chips washed up on shore. Now that's my kind of day at the beach.

    Basically the orientation repeats the sign that it could be hot, noisy, crowded. there are 8 levels where you can stop and look out or take a break. She requested that we stay to the right so that people coming down could stay to their ...

    ... I’m a simple girl! Sadly we were too late to climb to the top; I think the views would have been spectacular, but it’s obviously a dangerous occupation!

    From Hatteras, we caught the ferry across to Ocracoke Island. This 40 min journey was free and is a well used service. Had we have followed our original plan, we would have been sailing north on this with Bree, as you can see ...
