We then drove up to Nags Head to Jockey's Ridge State Park. The hike to this largest sand dune on the Atlantic coast reminded me a little of the deserts in Utah.
At the top of the dune, we looked east at the bay and Albermarle Sound.
I really enjoyed the view from the top floor of "Ocean Breeze" (for those who want to look it up on VRBO). It was great to watch dolphins swim in the ocean. Kookie enjoyed watching other people and dogs on the beach.
We loved going to Hatteras in the off season. All of our other trips (starting in the 80s) were in the summer when the crowds and mosquitoes were annoying. Also, I saw more birds than people which was nice.
Next is our trip to St. George Island in Florida.
