Outer Banks Sea Turtle Release

I had a chance to see a sea turtle released back into the Atlantic Ocean this evening. It was at Coquina Beach in South Nags Head–actually south of South Nags Head just across from the Bodie Island Lighthouse.

Outer Banks Weekend Thoughts

I had a chance to fly a couple of kites on JockeyâåÛåªs Ridge the other day.
