The trip is from New River, West Virginia, to Stinking Creek, Tennessee, by way of Long Key, Florida.
Duck, Outer Banks, North Carolina
We continued driving south on Rte. 12 from Corolla to the town of Duck. There is an extensive boardwalk along the inland side of the island that we walked.
Several wading birds posed for me.
Including this sleepy-head.
And, of course, seagulls.
There was a small chapel along the boardwalk. I could see how it would be a beautiful setting for a wedding.
It was a wonderful place to stroll.
By the time we finished walking the entire length of this impressive boardwalk we were done for the day. We continued driving south on Rte. 12 to where it joined Hwy. 158 at the place we had come onto the island in Kitty Hawk. Just beyond the Kitty Hawk Memorial we turned west onto Colington Rd. and drove off Bodie Island onto Colington Island. There we found a private campground on a canal that opened up to the sound.
At a nearby seafood market we bought some shrimp that had been caught that day. They seasoned and steamed them for us, then we took them back to the campground to gorge ourselves on. A clear night sky was a fitting end to a great day.
