obx & crystal coast



music credit: radiohead

some highlights of the obx & crystal coast leg of our vacation:

  • getting up before dawn to travel down to the beautiful outer banks & watching the sun come up as we traveled south
  • being the only people on the beach at such an early morning hour
  • arriving for an 8am for a 2 hr horse back ride through a wooded trail and on the beach at equine adventures (ryan is on tonka and i am on belle)
  • taking the croatoan ferry from hatteras to ocrecoke island - our first ever ferry ride
  • visiting the ocracoke island horse
  • more lighthouses!
  • feeding the ocracoke ducks
  • yet another ferry ride from ocracoke to cedar island - a much bigger ferry this time!
  • arriving at the harborlight guest house in cape carteret, nc (we stayed in the beautiful swann room)
  • enjoyed doing yoga by the bogue sound and of course some hammock lounging
  • spending just a little time on emerald isle before we got rained out
what a lovely trip!

be sure to catch part 1 of our vacation. part 3 is coming soon. :)

Hey Melita! How are you? It sounds like you had a spectacular vacation! Are you still on vacation or back home now? We don't live too far from the Outer Banks so if you ever want to stop by, let me know! Ocrecoke....I've never been, but it is definitely a trip I would love to take sometime in the nearby future...I heard it is so beautiful! Glad you had fun!
