Outer Banks III

One day we took a day trip to Ocracoke Island. We all enjoyed the ferry ride over there. On the way back we stopped at Cape Hatteras light house. It is the tallest brick lighthouse in the world and is an international symbol of the North Carolina seashore.

Being funny! I love foolin’ around with my family.

One night we ate dinner at a seafood restaurant. Meredith was so excited to order fish from the menu. When it got to our table, she asked “Where’s the fish?” We pointed it out to her. She looked perplexed and said, “But there’s no eye on it!” She was very disappointed about that.

My little shrimp.

There is a lot of history in the Outer Banks. Everything from Pirate history (Blackbeard was beheaded off of its shores), America’s first colony (the lost colony), Underground Railroad history, and the Wright Brothers’ first flight.

I guess you should take her to a more exotic restaurant where they serve the fish whole. =-O

Looks like a fabulous trip!

Wow - Clara is getting so big! (So is Meredith, too, for that matter.) Thanks for sharing the pics - you all look like you had a great vacation.
