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.

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.

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!
