Outer Banks Weekend, Day One - June 2012
We decided to take a long weekend break at the Outer Banks - the old
lady had never been, and I can never go often enough.
Did some backroad driving through Eastern North Carolina...lots of
small towns, the birthplace of Catfish Hunter, and farms.
Lots and lots of farms.
We made a stop in scenic Edenton, which was quite a neat little
town. Unlike most of the area the downtown was fairly lively and
all of the town restored to former glory. Lots of retirees here
keeping it afloat apparently.
The old Taylor Theater, still in use. Would love to have seen the
inside of this place.
There was a drug store with a real soda fountain in it. I had a
tasty fresh squeezed lemonade. I'd be there every single day if I
Finally got out on the banks and finished our evening at Jockey's
Ridge. Giant sand dunes as far as the eye can see.
And sometimes the old lady is standing right there in them.
