Jun 12, 2017 - First Flight Adventure Park

Hanging out at parent's in Kitty Hawk for past 3 weeks. Went to Adventure Park yesterday (Gordon, my brother Robert and his wife Valerie and Nicky & Charlie did the course Memorial Day weekend but I was too chicken at the time) and tested my limits on obstacle course-type runs high above the marsh. The builder-owners are friends of Robert & Valerie and have designed and built these parks throughout the states. Very fun and if we come across these towers again I will try it again!

LUCKY 58

Oct 4, 2016 - Bodie Island Light Station

After a night of gusty winds and Winnie rattling and rocking, I got up early. I hadn't planned anything today because it was supposed to rain all day. When I got up it looked like the predictions would be right, but by 0900 the skies started to clear to the north and I decided to drive up to the Bodie Island Light Station. Sue chose to stay at Winnie and relax. The ride to the light house is along the same route we'll be taking on Thursday when we leave and I was interested as to the condition of the road as it passes those temporary dunes...

Nov 14, 2011 - First in Flight, Kitty Hawk, NC

We usually don't have another entry so soon but today was such a treat I just had to share it with you. We left Williamsburg on Sunday, 13th and arrived at our RV site, "The Rufuge" later that PM. We are situated at the edge of a lake which is on an island (Roanoke) between the mainland and the Outer Banks of North Carolina on the Atlantic. Oh, what a spot. Today we visited the Wright Brothers National Memorial Park and what a joy!! We were able to see an exact replica of the Wright Flyer. The Wright Flyer was the first powered plane to fly...

Dressell's USA Quest

Sep 13, 2011 - Outer Banks

Once Corky and I connected with our gypsy souls, restless sets in quickly. The lure of the wide open road is never far from our minds. The pattern has become one day home; next day off to who knows where. Suffolk, Virginia lies very close to the VA/NC state borders. Sunday was a gorgeous day to travel the back roads of North Carolina ending up in the Outer Banks. The barrier islands compromise the Banks with MANY fishing villages, tourists beaches, and a National Seashore giving it its identity. Irene's storm surge has left much clean-up;...

Hunter's Travel

Aug 25, 2009 - Walking on Diamonds

Outer Banks of North Carolina Our son and his family have rented a beach cottage in South Nags Head, North Carolina. He invited Linda and I to join them for a week of sun and sand and to see our grandchildren experience their first trip to the ocean. We went to the Wright Brothers memorial and museum yesterday so the kids could see where aviation all began. Stopped at Jockey's Ridge park to climb the sand dunes and watch my youngest grandson do a spectacular face plant as he ran down the side of a huge dune! We strolled down the surf line...

Jul 10, 2009 - Roanoke Is 10, 11

Friday, July 10 Left Cape Point National Park and traveled north about 40 miles, about an hour, to Oregon Inlet campground. Also a National Park campground. The weather is perfect. Cool enough to sleep, but warm enough for shorts and T-shirts. This is a nice campground with the ocean just steps over the dunes. Took the day off from site seeing, and just relaxed around here. Had a nice walk on the beach, and the breeze is great. Keeps the bugs down. A lot of people came in for the week end. We have a lot of young men here this week end,...

Mar 22, 2008 - The Outer Banks

OK, you can see I'm (Joan)getting tired! Not being very descriptive in my notes here! It was pretty chilly, but sunny - but windy. The wind was blowing that fine sand pretty seriously. We visited one of the lighthouses ..and then went to Jockey's Ridge - the largest active dunes on the East Coast - over 90ft. tall - and pretty extensive. If it had been warmer, I might have thought it was the Sahara - well, maybe not --there were alt of people around! --saw someone cleverly flying a kite attached to a fishing pole!

Jul 5, 2006 - Paris-Norfolk-Nag's Head

I should plan better! Like last time my plane leaves the airport at an ungodly hour and I need an early taxi to get there for the first leg of my journey, Paris to London. Thunderstorms over Heathrow mean that we have to circle in a holding pattern for half an hour or so meaning that I can go straight on to my BA flight to Washington. My bag was not so lucky as it was despatched to Washington! After being fingerprinted and photographed, my connecting flight to Norfolk is delayed for 3.5 hours. The bad thing is that this delay is extended by...
