This is the first Christmas season I’ve experienced in Manteo and last night’s boat parade and Christmas tree lighting event kicked off the season in a perfectly festive way. The free soup, hot chocolate, and cupcakes didn’t hurt the experience either.
While walking Zoe this morning, I came across this pretty view near the Washington Baum Bridge.
There are quite a few hidden beaches within Fort Raleigh National Historic Site. The beach in the picture is below is north of the Waterside Theatre and east of the Thomas Harriot Trail.
Check out the Fort Raleigh National Historic Site Visitor Center if you ever find yourself on the north end of Roanoke Island.
