Spring Break Nags Head, NC

We took our little family and one friend to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  I found this little Beach House/Cottage on Craigslist for our spring break vacation.  It was perfect.  I worried a bit about it being a real place as I had to pay all up front but it turned out to be an awesome place.  except for the fact that it was freezing and windy most of the time we were there it was a great vacation spot.  I'd really like to go back in the summer when its warmer.    It would be a great place for a few families to go into together and get one of the beach houses that sleep like 24 people.   Anyone want to do that with us this summer or next? 

The Beaches were amazing!  The sand was perfect!  I really loved the whole thing.  Kathryn loved playing in the sand and getting all dirty that first and only day it was warm enough to get wet. 

We visited some fun places while the weather was our of sorts for  any beach time. 

The North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island features the largest aquarium in the state — a 285,000-gallon ocean tank complete with sharks, sea turtles and hundreds of fish.

 Fort Raleigh National Historic Site protects and preserves known portions of England's first New World settlements from 1584 to 1590.

 Wright Brothers National  Memorial - Wind, sand, and a dream of flight brought Wilbur and Orville Wright to Kitty Hawk, North Carolina where, after four years of experimentation, they achieved the first successful airplane flights in 1903. With courage and perseverance, these self-taught engineers relied on teamwork and application of the scientific process. What they achieved changed our world forever.
Cape Hatteras National Seashore - The sound of ocean waves, the starry night sky, or the calm of the salt marshes, you can experience it all. Shaped by the forces of water, wind, and storms these islands are ever changing. The plants, wildlife and people who live here adapt continually. Whether you are walking on the beach, kayaking on the sound, or climbing the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse there is something for everyone to explore!

I got 3 stamps for my National Park Passport!  I love visiting national parks!

Happy Easter!
