It’s always fun exploring new beaches.
We decided to get up early and drive south for 1.5 hours to Hatteras to catch the ferry to Ocracoke.
So glad we did!
We were able to get right on the ferry (a perk of coming at the end of summer when peak season is coming to an end). It is such a nice ferry ride!
We drove through the village while reading about the famous Pirate Blackbeard who loved coming to Ocracoke and eventually was killed there. (Some say his treasure is nearby? His headless body is too. Ugh.)
We also checked out the Ocracoke Lighthouse. Beautiful!
We finally made it to the beach where we spent hours boogie boarding and jumping in the waves.
The kids also played some baseball.
This beach is stunning. The water was perfect – enough waves to have fun, but not enough to scare you!
We headed back on the ferry and enjoyed the beautiful views again.
|How much do you trust me?|
We decided to stop at the Hatteras Lighthouse on our way back and climbed it. Stunning views, but very windy!
Another pretty lighthouse.
After the lighthouse climb, we were zonked. We grabbed some burgers for dinner, did our usual evening beach routine and fell asleep to the season 3 finale of Gilmore Girls!
What to do tomorrow? Shall we go to the beach? Or maybe go to the beach?
