Graveyard of the Atlantic

Beach on the Atlantic side – Ocracoke Island, North Carolina

The Outer Banks of North Carolina have always been a special place for me. I’ve gone there every decade since my teens and have seen massive changes slowly take place over the years. Many fond memories remind me what interesting times I’ve had on the beaches of the wild Atlantic or in the calm waters of Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds, by myself or with companions. This is one of those times, when Cindy and I did a road trip down in the winter, and appreciated just how stark and empty the shoreline is during that time of year – especially with an ominous weather front bearing down on us.
