We explored the area some and went to the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education. Of all the museumy things we went to on our trip, this one was our favorite. Lee had fun looking at all of the duck decoys.
On the way back, we stopped in Duck for lunch at a pizza joint named Waves. It was a tiny shop, right on the sound. It was so nice and relaxing to eat our slices and drink our beer out on the deck overlooking the water.
Up next was Jockey's Ridge. I had never been there and have to say it was pretty cool. The pictures I took really don't do justice to the amount of SAND and the experience of being there.
On Sunday morning, we packed up and checked out of the hotel. We stopped in Manteo at the Roanoke Festival Park on our way home. They have a replica of the Elizabeth II ship and of a colonial settlement site. It was pretty neat but we were ready to get on the road and head home (and to see Sugar!).
All in all it was a great trip and the perfect way to celebrate our first year of marriage.
I'll leave you with one last shot of the beach. Wishing I were there right now...
