OBX: a few more pictures

(Pictures also on previous 2 posts)

My hero! Twenty-fourth state, thirty-some marathons... since multiple myeloma diagnosis 6 1/2 years ago. Every day is the best day of the year: a masterpiece.

On the day before the race, after finding the start line, we visited the visitors' center in Kitty Hawk.
The map of shipwrecks was awesome.

Don at the Wright Brothers Monument

They could see the ocean from that hill!!

Precious days.... I love the beach.

This picture would be better without spots in the sky, the permanent lens spots inside the camera.
Camera is also wearing out. I sense a Christmas present coming!

I wondered about the damage to beaches in Kitty Hawk, Nag's Head.. and down the outer banks as we watched the weather channel coverage of the Ida Hurricane storm.

I loved the race! (See Make It a Masterpiece report if you haven't already.)

Didn't get a good picture of the magnificent bridge to Roanoke Island and the finish line. The view of the sound from the top of the bridge was forever!

Still getting occasional knee therapy. Can't seem to stretch out the tight crunch in the middle of my knee joint.
Sweet Pea and I are running/walking nearly every day. Never giving up.
Looking for half marathons after the holidays.

I've lived in NC for two years now and still haven't gotten myself to the Outerbanks. Your pictures are fantastic (even with the spotty camera) and just the push I need to get a visit to OBX on the to do list for 2010.

Anne said...

Nice shots. You really captured some of what makes the Outer Banks unique.

Sounds like you had a spectacular time in OBX. I have been there and like you, it is such a beautiful place.

Elaine Merrill said...

Love all your posts and pictures of the last few posts! So glad you're running and soaking up some beauty.

Beth said...

Love the pictures! What a great trip.

Margaret said...

I love all your photos and trip commentaries, since these are places where I will probably never go so it is fun to read about them...and learn something new!
Take care of your knee! And make sure Santa gets a letter re a new camera. ;-)

Wonderful Photos and Don looks amazing. Hope you knee continues to improve well. We wanted to wish you three a really wonderful Thanksgiving from us here in UK.

Wow - those photos are simply gorgeous! I have never been to that area, but I certainly want to go now.
