Roanoke Island, NC

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.

I like how the roots from this tree twist and intertwine with the next one. I wonder how old this tree was here before it died.

Another view of the tree.

Cape May – Lewes Ferry

Today I took an impromptu drive to Cape May New Jersey to take a few pics at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry.  A lot of people take the 45 minute Ferry ride to venture into Lewes Delaware.

I learned today that part of Cape May is an island.  I have lived in this state for almost 48 years and never knew that it was an island.

An Island??

An Island??

From my home to the Ferry it takes approximately 1.5 hours to get there but the drive is worth it.  It provided me peaceful time to think about the week to come and the next photo excursion.  I think Philadelphia Wednesday.
