Detour to North Carolina

Here's a few more beautiful fall pictures, this time from North Carolina.
It is 7 years since we first visited here.  We were in our first year of cruising, motoring down the Intracoastal Waterway and we were taken in by the scenery and friendly people.

Hiking has been a pleasure, both in the state parks and on the walking trails near our friend Reed's home.

Just a few hours from Durham and we were on the Atlantic beaches.
Gorgeous stretches of white sand as far as you can see.

We came across a kite festival at Wrightsville Beach.
Just look at the size of these kites in comparison to the people on the ground!
A beautiful sight on a perfect fall day at the beach!

Tomorrow it's back to beautiful Grenada.
We have a few weeks of boat projects to finish up before launching Merengue.
Can't wait to be back on the water!
