Where I stayed
We went to see the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Reg asked if I would like to go to the top I asked if there was a lift ha ha. When Reg saw it was half price for seniors his little eyes lit up. He couldn't get his money out fast enough. It was 275 steps to the top, the tallest lighthouse in the USA. We were both knackered half way up. but as we were representing our country ( England expects & all that)we forced ourselves through the pain barrier finally reaching the top sweating profusely & blowing for tugs
We booked into a hotel at Nags Head for a couple of nights , it backs onto the beach Thursday we went for a walk along the beach & then to the Wright Brothers Memorial at Kill Devil Hills,which we found it very interesting. We intended to spend the afternoon chilling out on the beach reading our books but it rained ( sods law) We went to an outlet mall instead but wasn't impressed & kept our dollars in our pockets.
The hotel was supposed to have wireless internet but it was a joke I spent ages trying up update the blog but when I tired to save it the connection was down & I lost all the info. the connection would only last for a couple of minutes at a time.
