Between being subjected to Tom’s awful taste in music approximately seven thousand fifty six times, I managed to take some awesome pictures of our trip. Enjoy!
Camp Awesome: We came here for taxon identification, sleep, and snackage.
Even 15-foot tall sand dunes are futile attempts to prevent the erosion that barrier islands experience naturally.
We went kayaking in a salt marsh and I spotted a duck. I was able to get close enough to take this sweet pic right as it took off.
The Cape Hatteras Light Station. It is 198 feet tall, and you must climb 257 steps to reach the top!
The view from the top was insane! It took me three minutes just to stop hugging the wall and stand by the edge to take this picture.
The Littoraria snails will climb the Spartina marsh grass to escape predation by crabs below. They can hold on even as they sleep by secreting a sticky substance onto the spot and just hang there, sleeping.
We came across this huge fish skeleton in the salt marsh. I took a picture with my hand next to it to set the scale for how huge this thing was.
Once you get the chance, go check out the Outer Banks! But whatever you do, don’t feed the Laughing gulls! They will stalk you forever if you do.
