Outer Banks Sunset.

My husband and I are recently retired and we have discovered that travelling in September is a well-kept secret. We went to the Outer Banks for a number of reasons: we were heading there last year when an accident resulting in a severely broken elbow, emergency surgery, and a quick flight home; we always wanted to visit Kitty Hawk/Kill Devil Hill; and a favourite author sets some events of her novels in Ocracoke. The weather is still very warm in late September - early October and we camped at Cape Hatteras and near Ocracoke. The amenities are limited but completely compensated by the sand, surf, sky, sunsets and sunrises. Kill Devil Hill is very impressive but we prefer flora and fauna and they did not disappoint. We also discovered a lovely art gallery/shop on Pea Island. There is artistic talent to burn on the Outer Banks. The pleasant ferry ride back to the mainland took our minds off the fact that we were very sorry to leave. We will return!

Will return.
by: Barb Dickie

Hello Dan,

The trip with the broken elbow was in 2008 and occured in Pennsylvania before we ever reached the Outer Banks. We returned in September 2009 and had the wonderful time I described. We want to return and spend much longer poking around. We only scratched the surface, a fact that was reinforced by the art work at the Pea Island gallery. I loved the photography by the photographer who incorporated his grandmother's old chair and also one whose landscape was rendered into a montage of a zillion monarch butterflies. Memorable.

Beautiful Sunrise

Thanks for sharing this terrific picture. I love how you have the sunrise peaking through the dunes. I hope everyone has recovered from the surgery. Hopefully your next trip will be less eventful and more relaxing.
