👋 from near Rodanthe, North Carolina in the Outer Banks!
Still on ’vacation’ touring up the East Coast with my family. We’re posted up at a beach house with several of my wife’s friends from college & their families.
If you haven’t heard of the Outer Banks
, they’re pretty wild. A string of peninsulas and barrier islands separating the Atlantic Ocean from mainland North Carolina. One spot, Ocracoke was the last refuge of pirate Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard.
It is also where the infamous pirate was killed November 22, 1718.
Today or tomorrow I’ll ride south with a route planned on Komoot
to Creed’s Hill Lifesaving Station
at Trent (today known as Frisco) with watchtower, cisterns and outhouse. The station was built in 1878 and abandoned in 1947. Read more about the Lifesaving Stations here on Hatteras island here
. And more about the history of them globally here.
As always, thanks for reading! ✌🏻️
