Good time to see the Outer Banks

Patrick and I have traveled adjacent to the North Carolina coast except there are so many large rivers the coastal estuaries and marsh are huge and do not have roads. Inland Corn is grown then allowed to dry to harvest for feed. The combine pictured takes the corn plant and removes the corn. The coastal pine trees are hsrvests and stacked to take to lumber miles as shown. Monday we rode 35 miles inland and 60 miles north around a wildlife preserve. Tuesday we rode back to the coast and up 12 miles up Emerald Island. Today we rode up the coast and caught the last ferry to Orcacoke Island. Tomorrow we will catch the ferry to Hatteras Island. The Outer Banks Islands extend over 200 miles off the mainland. Patrick is our navigator and I am the sommelier. In doing long unsupported bike tours you learn that there can be long days to transit to the next stop but the payback is to get to somewhere special. Tonight the air is soft and fragrant. The locally caught shrimp, scallops, and fish have the sweetness fresh from the sea. But wait there is more!
