Gilmores head for the Outer Banks with cousins
Friday morning we piled in the car and headed for North Carolina to meet up with Ericlee's cousins, Sean and Amy Bennett, and their son, Whitaker. The Bennetts had a plan to take us to the "Outer Banks," which is the Atlantic Coast. We made it to our hotel Friday evening and head a seafood dinner at Miller's Restaurant.
Then we drove over the sand dunes at Kitty Hawk, where the Wright brothers flew that first plan. We arrived right at sunset and enjoyed running up and down the dunes and watching the colorful hang gliders and kites. The sand was so cool, squishing between our toes.
Meilani and Whitaker ran and played in the sand. They were bathed head to toe in warm sunlight and sticky sand. Time for a bath!
We watched a flaming magenta sun ball slip into the horizon. We drank in the complete beauty of it all.
