Our Outer Banks Vacation: Day 4
On our fourth day of vacation (Tuesday, September 18) Bob and I went to the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge, located on the Dare County Mainland only a few miles from Roanoke Island.

We had hoped to see a bear. All we saw was a turtle crossing the road, one great blue heron and lots of butterflies. Bob enjoyed the off-road driving. We decided to make our way back to U.S. Route 64 when we had no signal on our cell phones and the GPS didn’t show us on a road. What “roads” we did travel and were on the GPS looked like tractor routes through a hayfield!
By the way, there are alligators in this wildlife refuge. I saw photographs of them on the Internet. We didn’t see an alligator in person though.

Very nice photos, Linda. I am glad you didn’t see any gators. 🙂
Hi Linda, your trip photos are bringing back many memories of my trip there. We also went to this Alligator River refuge also hoping to see a bear. I was a little upset all we were seeing were hunters. I think we went the wrong time of year. Loved the photos, especially the turtle.
Sounds like some fun driving
I enjoyed reading about your trip and seeing the beautiful photos, Linda.
