During the Summer of 2014, we took a trip down the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We stayed in Kill Devil Hills, Hatteras, and Ocracoke sampling the local seafood and culture. We spent much more time on nature trails than on the beach or in the surf. Highlights included spotting a bear in the Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuge, a fox in Jockey Ridge, and the wild horses in Corolla. We had a great trip and highly recommend it.
