|Sculpture recreating the first flight.|
|The monument on Kill Devil Hill.|
After the monument we didn't have anything planned and decided to just go for a drive down the outer banks to Hatteras island. Much of this area is a bit too touristy for my taste, with t-shirt and beachwear shops scattered every block down the towns of Kittyhawk, Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head and others. If it weren't for the Hatteras National Seashore, I'm sure these spits of land hanging off the U.S. coast would be fully developed from one end to the other. I'm thankful that some of our past leaders had the foresight to preserve places like these.

|Cape Hatteras Lighthouse...or the point south of which our boat|
turns into a pumpkin according to our insurance.
It was a nice trip and a much needed break. Now I guess it is time for us to figure out what our next plans will be...if we ever hear back from the boatyards.
