Beautiful sunrise on my morning walk on the beach. Amazing sunrise on the Outer Banks of North Carolina Found this guy on the beach this morning. Morning walk on the beach in the Outer Banks. Caught the sun rising at the Avalon Pier. Wright Brothers National Memorial, located in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, commemorates the first successful, sustained, powered flights in a heavier-than-air machine. From 1900 to 1903, Wilbur and Orville Wright came here from Dayton, Ohio, based on information from the U.S. Weather Bureau about the area's steady winds. On my recent visit, those strong, steady winds were still blowing!! The Wright Brothers National Memorial is a Big sky day and low tide beach. Outstanding sunset off of the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
#obx2015 Mans best friend left a trail. I actually took this with a Canon S30 point and shoot about 15 years ago. Hull and cottage makes a great pair. Just one of those moments when I thought that everything was in optimal composition. Breathtaking sunrise Early August, early morning sunrise on the Outer Banks of NC. Taken with my iPhone 7 Plus. The beach is here is the #1 attraction. Other attractions include Wright Brothers National Memorial, Nags Head Woods Preserve, Jockey's Ridge State Park, surfing, kite surfing, shopping, skydiving, and so much more.
I highly recommend taking a 45 min drive north to Corolla for a unforgettable experience. You will need a 4 wheel drive vehicle to drive along the 11 mile stretch of white sand beach and explore the off roads. The best part of this adventure are the wild Spanish mustangs that roam this area. The Wright Brothers National Memorial is a On a morning stroll, just happened to walk up on a washed up crab pod. Taken with a Canon A2. Beautiful piece of history! Fun for the whole family The impact hurricane Hermine had on the Outer Banks of NC! Don't think I've seen this much sea foam...ever! Took this with my iPhone 6S+ #beachbound Model of first airplane at Wright Brothers Museum in Kill Devil Hills OBX. I've photographed the Avalon Pier for so many years, I wanted to get a tight shot with the rising sun in the background. Cute, kitschy $1.00 fee to sightsee on pier. Good beach to visit after seeing Wright Brothers Memorial. #Colorful A different way to watch t he sunrise, I thought it made for an interesting shot. Vacations are meant for sleeping in, but, how can I miss a magic show every morning? Flight sampler at Outer Banks Brewing Station. Good food and beers, great staff. Highly recommended! The impact hurricane Hermine had on the Outer Banks of NC! Took this with my iPhone 6S+ Hurricane Jose creating some major surf in Kitty Hawk! The first windmill powered brewery in america. In 11 years the contraption would have paid for itself and runs for 30 years. The food was amazing, I had the bison burger Wright Brothers Memorial, Kitty Hawk NC, USA - April 2013
