On Hatteras (OBX 5)

Finally arrived to stay a few days on Hatteras Island, at The Cape. The lighthouse is within walking distance. Last year we stayed on Hatteras for the week, but this year I wanted to tour the Outer Banks and stay at Nags Head and Ocracoke for some time. That may or may not have been a mistake. But Hatteras is the real thing. The ocean water is warmed by the Gulf Stream. The summer atmosphere is timeless. Sunsets over Pamlico Sound are from another coast. Like Bubba’s BBQ (chicken and ribs combo for me, Emmy the sliced pork) Hatteras Island sticks to your soul.
