We spent some time in the Outer Banks with our son, daughter-in-love, and our precious Zoë. Needless to say the camera was seldom put away. You’ll find here in this mish-mash of photos some pelicans – there were actually five of them flying low over the surf, but my lens was not wide enough to capture all five of them together clearly. But it was a great thrill to see them, and a lot of luck to be walking the beach at that time!
I’ve also included, for the sake of our Colonialist, to whom I had to explain about what the Outer Banks are and some of their significance, some quick photos of the Wright Brothers Memorial Obelisk and the life-sized model with statues representing the people who were there on that famous day over 100 years ago. The actual first flight took place in Kill Devil Hills, NC. People often mistakenly think it was in Kitty Hawk; however, Kitty Hawk was the nearest place to KDH with a telegraph office. Enough history – on with the photos!
By the way, the chickens belong to our eldest son, Josh and his fiancée. You’ll notice near the end some of our wild irises, some of our roses, clematis, pansies, dianthus, and blooms that mean we might get some blackberries this year! The last photo shows the view of our perennial garden getting ready to POP! I’m sorry I couldn’t caption everything properly. Everything at WP seems to have gone kerflueyon me while I’ve been away!
A good morning kiss – both still half asleep!
Have you captured any light lately?
