On our last full day at the Outer Banks (Friday, September 20th), Bob and I drove to Buxton to see the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.
Counting the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, we saw a 5 lighthouses during our week at the Outer Banks.
Have you read the book or seen the movie “Nights in Rodanthe“? If so, you will recognize this inn as the one that had a starring role in the movie.
After the movie was filmed, coastal storms, erosion and repetitive ocean over wash caused the inn to become precariously close to falling into the ocean. New owners bought the house and moved it to higher ground in Rodanthe. The new owners restored the inn to appear as it did in the movie. Tourists to the area can rent portions of the Inn at Rodanthe and stay in the specific rooms that were used in the filming.
Throughout our stay at the Outer Banks, I enjoyed watching surfers at South Nags Head beach. I took pictures from the comfort of our ocean-front deck; however, I was too far away to get good pictures. On our last day at the Outer Banks, though, I walked out to the beach and took pictures from there. Finally, I captured some photographs worth sharing.
We drove home from the Outer Banks on Saturday, September 21. We made the trip all in one day. Thus concludes our Outer Banks 2013 Vacation. I hope that you have enjoyed reading about our vacation and seeing all the pictures.
