Let me begin this blog with a gratuitous roadkill picture. We kept seeing these dead birds on the sides of the bridges. They would fly over the bridges never seeing the cars and the cars would just knock them right out of the sky... So I made Dan stop in the middle of the bridge so I could get a picture.
I found out however that is not how my Mother in law typically vacations.
I thought it was quirky when we went to the blackbeard museum, a little weird when we took 3 kids into another museum all about shipwrecks. I think Dan and Teresa took pride in not leaving any word unread. The kids however seemed to finish up with the museums a little quicker. Georgia and I would kill sometime taking a freaking tour of the bathroom of every darn building we entered. I was about done with the museums by the time we got to the Indian Museum. I stayed in the car with the sleeping girls while Dan and his mom took Tommy.
Now really I enjoyed the museums, I just would never have imagined going to so many on a vacation. Teresa and Dan told me later how relaxed this vacation was and how usually they are just trying to see as many things as they fit in. (I am pretty sure they really meant how many museums they could fit in)
The Light house
Teresa, Tommy and I climbed the lighthouse. It was an experience I think we will all remember for a long time to come. One of the highlights of the trips for sure. We then.... you guessed it... walked around another museum!!! This one was about lighthouses. I walked around it for a few min with Georgia, then she decided it was time to check out the bathroom facilities and see if they were up to par. After that we just walked around outside and enjoyed the outdoors while Teresa and Dan read every word possible in the museum.
Dans Idea of a Vacation:
We all had a very good time together and I can't wait for some time to go back to the outerbanks and spend some time in the sand and water. The parts I would recommend the most would be the Hatteras Lighthouse, the ferrys, the Breakwater Inn, and the Cafe at Avalon.
