Hello and welcome to part 26 of our journey through North Carolina.
From our restful time at the “Farm Country Campground” in Williamston, NC we were off on a day trip to explore the Outer Banks (OBX) and the towns along the way.
It was a beautiful drive with many incredible sites to behold including a visitor center in Tyrrell County that had several walking trails for us to meander down and enjoy views of the beautiful waterways. We also spent time at Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo, NC where we enjoyed resting along the water watching folks kayaking.
Then we arrived at the Outer Banks peninsula which extends from off the mainland of Virginia and right on through past North Carolina. We gotta be honest however in saying that even though it was beautiful, the commercialism overpowered and detracted from the wonders of being able to overlook the vast Atlantic Ocean. Probably the best parts of our trip to the Outer Banks was spending time wiggling our toes in the Atlantic Ocean and on the way home watching the splendid lighting storm spewing its bolts down toward the ground. Then it was back to relax at the Farm Country Campground to a great home cooked meal.
Well this is it for today. We hope you come back and see how the trip unfolds as we share more of the USA Through Our Eyes. Until then be safe.
