Kitty Hawk, Nags Head & the missing chin-strap!

We’ve made it to the Outer Banks, this series of islands fronting the Atlantic and out from the North Carolina mainland and stretching 100s of kilometres.

We left Fredericksburg just after 8.30 am after a great continental breakfast. I drove the 700 km to Kitty Hawk (of Wright Bros) fame where we’re staying at Seascape Villas.

On the way down we drove through beautifully wooded Virginian countryside, skirting some of the immense Chesapeake Bay and into North Carolina.

It’s just over a month until Halloween (I’ve never caught the ‘secular’ celebration of it) so roadside markets are resplendent in pumpkins – huge & numerous.

Having checked into Seascape – our verandah overlooks one of the golf-course fairways – we drove about 15 km South to Nags Head, where we briefly checked out Jennette’s Pier where we’ll go fishing tomorrow. Good chance then to catch a beach walk.

We then drove the esplanade (of sorts) north to check out the amazing architecture of the beachfront houses.

Finally, the chin strap. For my sleep
Aopnea condition I use a C-PAP machine. Forgetful me forgot to pack in the chinstrap which accompanies the face mask apparatus. Makes me look like Hannibal Lecter all up, just worse. Mmmm, a whole week without it … too long. Answer- ask around local drugstores for somewhere selling chinstraps.

Yes, there is one in the area. Excellent. Dale kindly rings them up. “sorry, ma’am, he’ll need a doctor’s referral for that.’

You are kidding! I can understand the referral for the $1000 machine itself, but for a chinstrap. I’ve heard everything!

Solution for now. I buy some headbands (3 Vidal Sassoon ones for $5) from Walmart. Here I look so un-stunning wearing one vertically.

You like it!!!???? The double-chin completes the picture so well, says I.

Tomorrow, the fishing.

Cheers,
David
