Thanks for visiting and of course all comments are welcome.
Today is my last day here in Outer Banks. Time to pack up and get ready for the 8-10 drive back to NJ with a 1 and 8-year-old (this is fun!). I hope the traffic is light and we make it back in record time.
Since it is the last day I decided to take a ride and explore other parts of the Island. I drove out to Roanoke Island. Roanoke is where the first settlers landed way back in the late 1500’s. (Click here for some history.) This was formerly part of Virginia.
I went to the William B. Umstead Memorial Bridge and there was some nice scenery just waiting to be photographed.

Took a walk in Berlin Park today. I lived in this area for most of my life and never actually walked this park.
A Dragonfly even decided to pose for me.
I am not sure if this is a “weed” or a “flower” but I thought it photographed nicely.
Took a ride with some photographers to the decaying coal pier in Port Richmond, PA (just outside Philadelphia). This place is a hidden gem. The pillars in his place are the canvases to these young artist.
I am assuming that this is where the ships would come in with the coal for the electic company a few miles away.
While we were there kids were even swimming in this river.
I know most of their parents would ground them if they knew what they were doing. This could be very dangerous.
