Outer Banks Wanderings

Went to the beach this past weekend to regroup and recharge my batteries.  While I was packing I discovered that my camera fit into the arm band that was SWAG at a race from June.  So, instead of blogging a huge paragraph - here's the details.

Time of Day:  not too long after sunrise, around 5:30ish
Distance: 6.77 miles  (distance planned?  7miles, there was a GI issue that lead to an early turn)
Weather:  Ideal
Location:  The National Parks around Buxton NC


I started my run by leaving this house...



and running down this road....



before long, the road looked like this...


and I ran past this tree ...

and this house...
and into the Cape Hatteras National Park...

and took this trail ....


and ultimately, ended up here, before turning around.... and doing it in reverse!

Wow! The pictures tell that story better than any long paragraph could. That's beautiful!

I know all those spots. Probably because I live on the Outer Banks. The Northern portion in Kitty Hawk. I think I've probably been by each spot on your list at least five times over the last 20 years.

Hope you had a great time!

This makes me homesick but I'm so glad you posted in pictures. I needed them to "jog my memory." I hope you and your family continue to carry on like its a vacation once you get back to Richmond. At least for a few days.
