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 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 1,610-horsepower engine is fine; the steering is screwed up. OK fine. Worse things could happen. So we wait an extra 90 minutes, knowing our burger at Wendy's was not necessary.

... Virginia we made it to North Carolina. Around that time Yotam realized that our schedule was not up to date and that we will not be able to see much of the outer banks. Which was disappointing for all, but understandable do to the intense circumstances.
Just as we were excepting the fact that nothing was to be seen, I spotted the Wright brother monument.
