Got up this morning and decided to take a ride. So, I called a friend, and we rode to the outer banks. I was already in North Carolina near the capital. It would only be a little more than a three hour drive. It was a beautiful day, and there was nothing on my agenda.
It was an easy and scenic drive.
Stopped at Kitty Hawk to take a closer look at the lighthouse.
We ate in Avon. Most restaurants were closed as this is the off season. So, we eat like the locals. Oceana’s Bistro was a great place. Sorry I didn’t take a picture of the food, but it was terrific and the people very friendly.
We spend a little quiet time at the beaches along Hwy 12.
As the sun began to set, we left the beaches and head back to the Piedmont. The roads were lonely and quiet. A light breeze blew sand from the dunes across the road. At times it was so beautiful that it all looked artificial.
