    East Cost

    October 9 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 21 °C

    Das Wetter kann nie zuuu schlecht für Strand sein! ;)
    Nachdem ich die Nacht in Wilmington verbracht habe (manche kennen die Stadt vielleicht auch als "One Tree Hill"), fuhr ich weiter nördlich da der eigentliche Plan ist, bis Sonntag in New York zu sein. Zuerst ging es an den Topsail Beach, wo ich bisschen am Wasser entlang bin und den restlichen Tag am Ft. Macon, bzw. Atlantic Beach ausklingen ließ. Am nächsten Tag ging es zum "Cape Hatteras National Seashore" (Nationalpark). Eine Straße, immer gerade aus und Sand und auch Wasser auf der Straße. Die Häuser stehen teilweise im Sand und sind kunterbunt. Am besten fand ich die Leuchttürme, die es auf dem Inselabschnitt gibt. Insgesamt 3, von denen ich zwei gesehen habe.Read more

    3.1 Waves on the Outer Banks

    September 4, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    First day in Norfolk and immediately left to go to the beach house in Waves on the Outer Banks.
    Best weather I had there, ever. And this is my 6th, 7th, ... 8th time there? Not sure. But it was super cool. Also the company was quite enjoyable.

    However, the Outer Banks suffer from strong hurricanes and the rising tides. Luckily, our house is in third row and not at the ocean front, which makes it more protected.

    If you are interested, you can book the house here:

    Drive to Nags Head North Carolina

    May 24, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 18 °C

    Today was all about driving. The kids from the campsite next door finally woke up (as Brandon wanted to wake them up for a few hours) to say goodbye.

    We had a 4 hour drive from ashville to chapel hill and then another 3.5 hours or so to Nags head.

    While on our trip Bruce, josh's dad, asked us to chat with Bea. Bea is an American who is engaged to Josh's cousin Calvin, who lives in Canberra. Bea just happened to live in Chapel Hill, NC, halfway between Ashville and Nags Head. Bea and I organised to meet for an early dinner.

    From Ashville we planned on starting our day with a walk to a waterfall Elisa's mom suggested and we thought that would be great to tire the kids out but, as we got to the parking lot of the walk,.Inara was already asleep.

    We made it to Chapel Hill a few hours earlier than planned and had a lunch with Bea rather than a dinner. She took us to a old style pharmacy which has a diner in it and a confectionary store. To enjoy the interesting old fashioned store we all had milkshakes. After lunch we had a walk around North Carolina University campus, with old heritage buildings, big old trees and lots of squirrels.

    The kids were great on the drive and was our longest of the trip. We made it to Nags Head about 8pm, 2nd to arrive. Elisa 's mom and husband made it a just a couple hours earlier.

    Outer Banks

    September 20, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Heute fuhren wir mit dem Auto weiter über die Inselkette Outer Banks. Die 280 Kilometer lange Kette aus größeren und kleineren Inseln, die vereinzelt nur mit Fähren zu erreichen sind, sind besonders bei Einheimischen ein sehr beliebtes Ausflugsziel.
    Die langen Sandstrände laden zum flanieren und verweilen ein.
    Auf Bodie Island befindet sich das Wright Brothers National Memorial. Den Gebrüdern Wright gelang an dieser Stelle der erste Motorflug.

    Mad Hatteras

    May 26, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Driving down the outer banks today to our next camp site in Ocracoke. Memorial Day weekend so weve had to be organised for a change and actually book somewhere!

    Took a crazy little ferry half way down the banks - only looked like a mile on the map but took over an hour as we winded our way past all the sandbanks. Check out the wobbly Elvis on the dash (perfect pressie Claire ☺️).

    Spent the last few hours of glorious sunshine on the beach learning how to fly our stunt kite (I don't remember kites being so much fun!)

    Wright Brothers National Memorial

    May 24, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    As a kid I was a bit fascinated with early flight and I wasn't going to pass up on a chance to visit Kitty Hawk.

    What's most amazing is that 66 years after flying 852 feet is that we put a man on the moon (with a big of the original plane in his pocket).

    Spent the rest of the day lazing around on the beach and pimping put Elvis with a new stereo (we now get more than one radio station, although they are all playing country music!)Read more

    Alligator River

    May 25, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Another run along the beach followed busy a quick dip to cool down then the inaugural outing of our inflatable kayak at Alligator River. Fortunately the closest we got to one was a pair of eyes disappearing under the surface.

    Visited the lost colony - Walter Raleigh's first settlers. As you can guess from the title things didn't go so well for them. The first 'American' baby was born there, appropriately called Virginia Dare.

    Checked out the beach but the pesky bitey flies took the edge of it. Ended up chillaxing back at camp and settling in to watch the first Game of Thrones (only 6 series to go...) As you can see from the photo, it's pretty comfy back there with a king size bed that we leave up as we lazy!

    Hatteras/obx

    January 10, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 59 °F

    Winding down the obx (Outer Banks) basking in the warm 60's weather. Saluted the Wright Bros at Kitty Hawk, pondered the lost colony at Ft. Raleigh (whatever happened to Virginia Dare?), and enjoyed lighthouses and surf to Hatteras. Lovely stop at KOA on the beach with giganto hot tub, ahhhhh...
