We continued on our way to Kitty Hawk to see the Wright Brothers National Monument. It was really interesting and I am glad we were just in time for the telling of their story.
This is a replica of the plane they made their first flight in.
Here I am flying out to the 4 different distances their first flights went.
You can see the last marker way out there. Way to go guys!
Snapped this one on the drive. We didn't have time to go see all of the cool lighthouses.
This is the Bodie Island lighthouse.
It was really smokey from some fire on the mainland, but the view was still great!
We decided to take a ferry back to the mainland rather than trekking all the way back up the Outer Banks. I turned out to take a lot longer, but we enjoyed the experience and the break from the car.
We had about an hour wait between the two different ferry rides.
Luckily their gift shop was going out of business so we scored some
cheap souvenirs including the Frisbee that kept the boys entertained.
Here we are on the ferry with a front row view.
Sorry the only view you get to see is of some man.
