Kayaking Slash Creek in Hatteras Village

Exploring the end of the island…

My mom and I walked down to the very southern end of the island today. We left from the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum and walked about 2.5 miles on the beach to the southernmost tip of Hatteras Island, where Hatteras Inlet cuts through to the Pamlico Sound.

A quick trip to the city and our country goes nuts…

I had to go to Atlanta last week for work. While I loved seeing my friends there, I couldn’t get back to my tiny island fast enough. There is not a single thing I miss about the suburbs. Not a single thing. While I was in Atlanta, the crazy MAGA riot happened at the Capitol.… Continue reading A quick trip to the city and our country goes nuts…
