My trip began at Cape Point on Hatteras Island, but after three nights I was moved to higher ground before Hurricane Jose passed by. This was a good thing as I then positioned the homestead behind a sand dune in Frisco, and we survived the 40 mph wind gusts without a glitch.
While I really like the southern towns of the Outer Banks, I had to take a day trip to Ocracoke Island, too. It's the one spot I've seen twice before on the barrier islands, and it's definitely my favorite little spot of all!
After a week of playing at my new location, Hurricane Maria was on the way! I was given a 24 hour heads-up that the campground was closing and that evacuation was a must. Thankfully, I know where most of the hostels are, and I am now spending my last of 3 nights in Wilmington, NC. Tomorrow, I hit the road again for just an hour's drive back to the tent at a camp near Emerald Isle.
As crazy as this all sounds, I had a good time in the Outer Banks, and this morning, I had coffee and conversation with gents from Austin & South Korea who are at the hostel, too. Life stays interesting.
