Road's End

Today we drove north until we ran out of road. We've been to one end of the Outer Banks to the other in the last couple of days.

Mary and DH climbed the last of four lighthouses today.

The Currituck Lighthouse is located in the beautiful community of Corolla. Just down the road from the lighthouse is the renovated, historic district of Corolla. Including, the old one-room schoolhouse (now housing the Wild Horse Museum), general store and community church.

We also made a stop at the NC Wildlife Coastal Education Center. This is the coastal version of the wildlife center that Mary and Katie take classes at when we are home. They had a great museum on history of fishing and hunting along the coast, along with information about all the wild birds that winter over in the area.

Emily made friends with the catfish

Tonight, the little ones are abed and DH is teaching Mary how to play backgammon. I'm heading outside to enjoy watching the full moon.
