Outer-banks

Good Day All,

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Did you do the Black Friday thing?  I must admit that I’ve never really been one to do Black Friday shopping although the last few years I’ve been doing it sitting at home in front of my computer.  Yes I’ve gone to doing my shopping through the internet, not sure if it's smart or lazy but it’s my way of getting it done.

I’m a bit behind with this weeks blog, I had pre-written some blogs to post over the last few weeks so while I was gone on my two-week trip I wouldn’t have to worry about putting a blog together, but I’m back home and out of the pre-written blogs.   

I thought since I just got back from my trip to the outer banks of North Carolina with some sightseeing excursions on the way, I’d do a post about what all my cousin and I did on the trip.  We started out on Monday morning with Alexandria Virginia being our major first destination with a nights stay in Somerset Pennsylvania on the way.  We arrived in Alexandria hoping to see Mount Vernon that day but with it being Veteran’s Day the place was packed and the parking lots were full, so onto plan B.  We took the Metro into DC the next two days to see the sights with the help of a hop on/hop off tour bus.  We finally got to Mount Vernon on Friday after checking out of our hotel then onto Williamsburg Virginia.  Plan A was that we would have had the time to go to Virginia Beach before heading to the outer banks, oh well maybe next time.  Saturday we got to the outer banks, had lunch at The Blue Point in Duck along with some shopping and sightseeing.  Spent our last night before getting to our final destination in Kill Devils Hill.  On the way to Trinity Center in Salter Path North Carolina were we would spend the next five nights at a Road Scholar program, we stopped at Elizabethan Gardens on Roanke Island.  Through the Road Scholar program we visited Fort Macon, Cape Lookout National Seashore and historic Beaufort (pronounced bow-fort, we were told not to pronounce it the same as they do in South Carolina).  The weather had turned very seasonably cold for all the areas we visited (figures, so much for going to warmer climate) but it appeared that it was also happening here at home also so I guess I was in a warmer climate even if it was seasonably cold for the area.  We left Salter Path Friday after lunch and started back arriving home on the Sunday before Thanksgiving.

It was a great two weeks and I have tons of photos which I haven’t had a chance to go through them all yet, I can’t say that I’ve got the ultimate shot from the trip between the weather and the time of day that we were sightseeing (not being the optimal light) but it’s the memories of being there that they bring that will makes them special to at least me.

Thanks for visiting my blog and have a wonderful day,

Until next time,

~Bonnie
