A travel blog entry by bambinmike

Mike complained the whole time to Brian about his ankle hurting, to stay away from the short hand rails, and to stay away from the edge once on the top. Brian keeps calling Mike a chicken.

A travel blog entry by malbet


... 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 ...
