First in Flight...

more on the trip to the coast of NC and the Outer Banks....
we broke camp on Thursday morning and we drove up to the north end of the OXB.

Our plan included a stop at the Wright Brothers Memorial and Museum near Kitty Hawk..

 

There is a huge Monolithic tribute....it's really huge!  One side has this wing pattern on it and the other side 


has the names..

 

and a replica of the plane ...


The cluttered background makes it hard to see the plane...ooops.

Inside all sorts of cool facts n stuff..


Like this wind tunnel they used to test the effects of wind on the plane design.
I got my passport stamp here and on we went...up to 


Nope Im not gonna pay to make my heart race..


I like this little cistern building off the side of the house..what a great idea!  People take notice!  I know its illegal to catch rainwater in some areas but if it ain't we should do it! 



We had hopes to see some of the wild horses up around Corolla  but turns out its 4 wheels drives only or pay $50 for a "safari" type tour...passed on that you can help rescue a poor slaughter bound horse for that...
So we did have a nice dinner then headed back to the mainland we took a motel for that night and turned out they had a sweet heated pool so at 9 pm we were dog paddling!! 

My Impressions of the Outer Banks: 
TOO Commercialized! 


PEACE
