Outer Banks Trip

Of course I didn't take nearly as many pictures as I would have liked, but that's because I didn't have enough time :(
Stopped and stayed the night in Virginia Beach at First Landing State Park. Got up and watched the sunrise, drove down to Kitty Hawk and down the Outer Banks and took the ferry to Orcacoke Island. Stayed the night out there, got hammered by rain/wind from tropical storm Danny at night, and watched the sun pop out of the clouds in the morning. Then I drove up to Banner Elk SC, met with Trent and Cortney for a quick dinner, took a few pictures, drove home through rain/fog and pulled in the garage around 1:30am.

I need to drive this route again with my with and much more time. Next time I want to get down to Charleston, Savannah, and check out the Blue Ridge Parkway.

I posted about it in off-topic!
Yes it's off of Shore Drive. The weather was terrible Thursday night! I hid in the cab of my truck for 30-45 minutes while I watched lightning strike all around and people drown their cars in flooded streets, lol.

i doubt he did since that is way out of his way. and its 11 dollars or something like that to get through the toll. so if he did he must have been lost

Those houses right on the water are crazy.

What happens when a huge storm comes in? Do they just get destroyed?

idk but i have always wondered the same. you can see the waves are pretty rough there and plus danny's off the coast and the house is already pretty much in the water doesn't look good.

the pillars they are on are way in the ground they are designed to have the water come up under them. but i would imagine if a huge storm hit they could be destroyed.
