Outer Banks and a Travel Day

Sunday - We check out of the house at around 9 and headed north to the Currituck Lighthouse in Corolla. There was also a small maritime museum with local boats and history. 

The focus of the boats seemed to be more on hunting than fishing. At least in this area, waterfowl seemed to be what their markets wanted. I guess that seafood was readily available but wetlands for waterfowl was less common. 

After the lighthouse, we stopped for an early lunch at an Asian place. I had a curry rice bowl with pork katsu. It was a nice change from the norm of the last couple of months.

We then headed to Virginia Beach since there was plenty of time to catch our flight. There is a Naval Aviation Monument on the beach with a number of bronze statues. 

There is also a large bronze statue of Neptune. The Virginia Beach area is much more built-up than the Outer Banks. 


  1. Martha and I have been to that statue of's impressive.
