Vacation Day Seven

The last offical day of vacation started on Friday with breakfast on the pier. Then we took a nice walk to the end of the pier to watch the people fish.

This fella caught two of these big Drums.

Then we bought Jerry some fishing gear and headed to Harker's Island to catch a boat to Cape Lookout. On the way we saw the wild horses!

Here's our ride. They leave Harker's every hour for a fiftenn minute ride over.

It is very beautiful over there. There is a nicely maintained boardwalk to a visitor's center, restrooms, museum, lighthouse, and a beach full of seashells.

This is the building where they used to keep the oil for the lighthouse. It's modernized now and flashes it's light every 15 seconds.

Waiting for the ride back.

They are crazy about their lighthouse downeast. I saw replicas everywhere.

The beach and pier at the Oceanna. Very relaxing place to stay.
Did a little birdwatching. this gull has a baby fish in his mouth. Took him a while to break it into a manageable size.

We are home now. Yesterday we drove from Atlantic Beach NC to Selma NC so Jerry could go tot he JR Tobacco store. We made it to Richmond Hill GA before calling it a night. Yesterday I got a photo with a Ratbone friend's mother and then today had breakfast with another Ratbone volunteer. Fun to meet people I've talked to on the phone. Back to work tomorrow, I hope. Feeling feverish :(
