Jockey's Ridge

Our vacation adventure of the day was Jockey's Ridge State Park, home of the largest sand dune system in the Eastern United States.

Here's Jazz "hand gliding."  There's a hand gliding school at Jockey's Ridge where they practice by gliding off the dunes.  Unfortunately, Jazz had to limit herself to this demo hand glider!

Certain portions of Jockey's Ridge make you feel as though you're in the desert, even though you're at the beach!

Tess, Jazz, and Indy on a small sand dune, with the large dunes in the background.

This photo was taken in the area of Jockey's Ridge that borders the sound.  The Dals enjoyed a nice romp in the water to cool off after visiting the dunes.

When we took this photo, someone passing by said that the dogs were better than her kids at posing for pictures!

Currituck Lighthouse

On our prior trips to the Outer Banks, we were able to visit three of the four lighthouses in the area:  Hatteras, Ocracoke, and Bodie Island.  This year, we wanted to see Currituck Lighthouse.

Below are some of our pictures from Currituck.  Out of the four lighthouses, this and Hatteras Light Station are close favorites.  I loved the Currituck Lighthouse and the area surrounding it.  Well worth the trip to see it!

Jazz, Indy, and Tess in front of the lighthouse.

Even though I normally post pictures that include the dogs, I just loved this shot of the top of the lighthouse taken through the trees that surround it.

Here are the Dals on a bridge over the pond that's in view of the lighthouse.  

The area surrounding the Currituck Lighthouse was so pretty, and we took lots of great photos.  We enjoyed a beautiful day and look forward to returning to Corolla again on another trip.

Back in the Outer Banks

The Dals are happy to be back on the Outer Banks for our annual vacation.

Tess, Jazz, and Indy romping on the beach shortly after our arrival.  Around the time we get to Norfolk, the dogs figure out that we're headed for the beach!

Sweet, happy Jazz!
