NC Outer Banks
We've spent the last few days exploring the Outer Banks of NC. David Senseney has graciously hosted us in his house on Ocracoke for 3 nights - a great refuge to escape most of the bugs and heat, and be able to shower off the sweat, sand, and saltwater. He took us out to a nearly-deserted part of the beach in the Cape Hatteras National Seashore; the best place to "bare-butt body surf". We also went to Springer's Point Preserve on the Sound, reputed to be Blackbeard's favorite hang-out and near to where he was eventually beheaded. Aarrgh! And speaking of beheading, Adalaya has become an expert green-headed horse-fly killer.
