Boone, NC

My mom, sisters and I took a girls trip to Boone to watch the famous outdoor drama, “Horn in the West” We got to tour some old settler’s cabins and watch people re-enacting living during that era. It was facinating! There’s no photography allowed during the drama so if you click on the link above it will take you to their website so you can see some photos.

We found this charming little health food cafe in downtown Boone..

The most delicious veggie burger ever – and I really mean it.. it was DELISH!

And just to clarify, the cup was made out of corn, not the coffee. The coffee was amazing!

Kitty Hawk Beach Trip

Kitty Hawk Beach –

A cute little jellyfish..

My yummy breakfast on the beach… :)

Heading out to catch some waves..

Wait for it…..


Enjoying some delicious fresh roasted coffee at Front Porch Cafe..

Bodie Island Lighthouse –

Cape Hatteras Lighthouse – my personal favorite of all the NC lighthouses. :) My dream is to go to each one someday, so far I’ve been to four of them, so that means I only have three left!

I’ve dreamed of climbing a lighthouse, so I was perfectly delighted when John bought tickets to go into Hatteras! 257 steps up a winding staircase to the top – it was so much fun!

The view from the top…

John will be posting some beautiful HDR’s he took of the lighthouses very soon!
It was definitely one of the most wonderful trips ever… -beth

Kitty Hawk Beach Trip! (iPhone pictures)

This is our collection of iPhone photos from our weekend trip to celebrate our half anniversary.. :) I’ll post the ones from my camera once I get home and sort and edit and such. :)
The Wright Brother’s Memorial…

The waves were huge! And no they don’t look big at all in the picture, but that’s what always happens. :P If you weren’t prepared (or sometimes even if you were) when they hit you, they’d knock you flat and carry you all the way to shore. :)

Going to Pamlico Jack’s for a fresh seafood dinner.. :)

Crabcakes.. they were some of the best I’ve ever had! So absolutely delicious..

The restaurant was right on the sound.. so we got to watch the sunset over the water right from our table.

Incredible fresh roasted coffe at Front Porch Cafe before we head home..

Yellow #4 & 5
