This is Highway 12 on the way to Cape Hatteras (looking north, Hatteras is south of where I am standing). Something really wonderful about being the only one on this road with huge sand dunes on either side. Sand blows whimsically across the asphalt and the roar of the ocean falls over top the seaward side. The smell of the salt reduces blood pressure and for a moment I, like the landscape, could care less that the market and economy are in bad shape. I envy the fact that when I left this place, it still had no clue about our condition.
Maybe these will inspire you to head down to the outer banks of NC.
