We wanted to stay and play awhile but it was SO windy this was a super quick stop for us. I love the lines of the Bodie lighthouse. The best part is that we can see the light at night from our RV!
The weather today in Nags Head was all over the place. It was very cold, very warm, sunny, rainy, very calm, super windy. All the span of a few hours. Then after dinner we spotted this double rainbow! It was so bright and just incredible! I wish we were out on the beach just past the dunes to view it!
Today we went and found a playground near the beach. Z absolutely loved the pirate ship playscape because he’s super in to pirates right now! He loved the dolphin and my mom teaching him how to pump his legs on the swing too.
Today we trekked out to Ocracoke Island. It’s an hours drive from Nags Head in the Outer Banks plus a one hour ferry ride. We had so much fun and made some wonderful memories. We were hoping to score some really amazing shells. We found some, but it wasn’t at all what we’d hoped for even at low tide. But! We did see a sign for shelling tours out to an island and booked that for later this week! So excited!

Over Christmas I asked my mom if there was anywhere on her bucket list that she had never been, but had always wanted to go. She immediately answered “Outer Banks, North Carolina” without giving it a thought. I immediately said, “let’s do it!” So we started planning this stop and she flew in to meet us here. We were here less than 30 minutes before we ventured out to the beach in search of shells. We found a few keepers and I loved all the purple pieces so much. I’m so happy to spend the next 8 days exploring with my favorite people! Tomorrow we are taking a ferry out to Ocracoke Island!
