Our Outer Banks Vacation: Day 3

On our third day of vacation (Monday, September 17) Bob and I visited the town of  Manteo, located on Roanoke Island, and the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge along the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.  En route Pea Island, we did stop at the Bodie Island Lighthouse but did not take any photographs.  The lighthouse is in the midst of a restoration project, which was begun in 2009.

The lighthouse is located in the town of Manteo.

A major attraction in the town of Manteo is the Roanoke Island Festival Park.  We did not visit the Festival Park this year; however, I did capture a photograph of one of its attractions.

We spent most of our time at the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge watching turtles.  The little turtles were pushing this bigger turtle out of the way.

    Sounds like a great day, Linda! One of my favorite places was the Pea Island refuge. I loved seeing a lot of birds there. The lighthouse was being worked when we were there. The turtles are cute. Great shots.
