OBX = Roanoke, Bodie, Hatteras, Ocracoke & Cedar Islands in 24 hours
As promised in my blog back in February, I did make it to the coast, only not in winter. Daniel and I took off Friday evening, spent the night in Rocky Mount and hit Roanoke Island by about 9:45 AM on Saturday. We took tons of pictures, explored light houses, ate at local haunts (I recommend the Froggy Dog Cafe in Avon, NC for lunch - I had the Froggy's revenge). We rode the ferries from Hatteras to Ocracoke and then to Cedar Island. Lots of good shots for the "Where does this lead you" series and just some good landscapes of the dunes and whatnot. I really think everyone should take a weekend and make this drive, you will not be disappointed. It was wonderful to see so many large sections of the coast undeveloped. I expect much of the thanks for that belongs to the North Carolina Coastal Federation. Anyway, I am planning on making the trip again, but scheduling in about four days so we may take our time.
