Outer Banks On 4th Of July

I  hope you all had a nice long weekend 4th of July. Ours was wonderful. We went to Outer Bank, NC. This is the first time for me to visit this famous beach ( well at least around where we live :) We left early in the morning to beat the traffic. It took us about 3 hours to get to there. Thank God we had a wonderful beautiful day after rain almost everyday during the week. We drove along the coast from Kitty Hawk all the way to Hatteras Island.

First we stopped by at Wright Brothers at Kitty Hawk. This museum is very educational. We learn something from this museum about aviation stuff.
We were thinking to see Cape Hatteras  light house and half way there we realized it took further up than what we thought. Since we just spend the day at Outer Bank we turned around. Instead, we stopped at Bodie Island light house. This is also the first time for me to see the light house ( well a couple things that the first time for me on this trip :) 
The sky was blue and clear that day. We really enjoy it except the heat and humidity. The beach is really beautiful and relaxing with all the white sand.

One thing, I would say about Outer Banks is very family type of beach. Basically, if you come here just relax and enjoy the family or your company. I barely see a high rise building, mostly a beach vacation house.
We also visit Roanoke Island, this Island has very interesting story about the lost colony from England. We learn something from this Island as well. Our day were very busy and most of all we were spent and had great time together. We were heading home around 5 and thinking to see fireworks but it didn't happen because we were wiped out from having a great time.
We were collecting the sea shell from the beach. I brought home a half shopping bag of sand. I will use it for summer decoration or even as a memories keep sake. I put them inside this hurricane, very simple yet very meaningful because there is memory to tell in it.
