Nag's Head, NC

Here are a few pictures from our hotel balcony of the sunrise Sunday morning.

We attended church at Nag's Head Church this morning. The service was a little more rockin' than I'm used to, but they preached the Word of God and had a great message. We checked out of our hotel, grabbed some lunch (I ate grits), then headed out of town.

Our first stop was at Kitty Hawk to the Wright Brothers' National Memorial.

Around the base of the monument was the saying, "In commemoration of the conquest of the air by the brothers Wilbur and Orville Wright conceived by genius achieved by dauntless resolution and unconquerable faith".

We were hoping to take a route south via a succession of ferry rides along the coast, but were unable because the ferry was booked and they were running limited departure times. We ended up going back inland and retracing our steps from yesterday a bit, then heading south to Atlantic
Beach, where we're staying tonight.

"The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and they are safe." Proverbs 18:3

I saw Gwenyth as they carried her in from the parking lot. I was sitting in the car finishing my diet Coke.
