Michele and I went a weekend getaway for our 29th Anniversary. Because weather forecast was calling cooler temperatures, we decided on weekend getaway to the Outer Banks. It been 18 years since we stay at Nags Head. In the past, we alway went to Hattera or Ocracoke Island, but because of Hurricane Dorian Ocracoke Island is close. The eye for the storm went right over the barrier island. Dorian’s flood at least matches levels from the storm of 1944. There was very little wind damage north of Nags Head. There are three brewery in the Outer Bank, four if you include the one on Ocracoke Island. We are planning on stopping at “Lost Colony” on Manteo, the “Outer Banks Brewing Station” in Kitty Hawk, and the “Weeping Radish” in Jarvisbury. I haven’t been to Currituck Lighthouse in Corolla.
For the brewery tour, the plan is to stop at the Lost Colony on Thursday, then to stop at Outer Banks Brewing Station on Thursday evening. On Friday, drive to Corolla and sling over to Jarisbury for lunch and brew at that Weeping Radish. At the Outer Banks Brewing Station and Weeping Radish, they brew their own Root Beer, which was very good.
The next stop was Nags Head and across our cottage was Jennette’s Pier. I got some terrific sunrise in the morning on beach near the pier. There was a surfing competition going that weekend and the surf was up.
On Friday we stopped at the Wright Brothers National Memorial, located in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, commemorates the first successful, sustained, powered flights in a heavier-than-air machine.
Next stop Currituck Lighthouse in Corolla. It took about a hour to get there from Kitty Hawk.
I had to get my last sunrise for the trip on Saturday before going home.
My only disappoint was that I didn’t get a chance to take any sunset pictures on the trip. We took our dogs with us and we found a nice dog park across the Wrights Brother Memorial. If we were not there, then you could find us on the beach in Nags Head with my puppies.
But to end the weekend on a positive note, we went to Atlantic Beach on Sunday evening for the sunset.
