Thanksgiving at the Outer Banks

JennySlash reminded me that we took this week off last year and spent Thanksgiving week at the Outer Banks - with the Nor'easter tearing things up the last couple of days, it sounded like a good thing we didn't decide to repeat. It looks like it moved through faster than expected though, so hopefully folks will have a good rest-of-the-week out there. Cindy Lee at thoughts and things has some great photos of Canada geese walking around on the "ground" in Roanoke Sound (or is that Croatan Sound? I can never keep them straight.) after the wind pushed all the water towards the mainland. Pretty cool!


Hope you're all where you're gonna be for Thanksgiving and that you have a safe and happy one!

The photos I took were taken on the Nags Head Causeway heading east off of Roanoke Island. The body of water I shot was the Roanoke sound.

Quick name the sounds lesson; Roanoke Island is roughly cigar shaped with the longest “sides” going north to south. The Pamlico Sound starts at the north end of Roanoke Island, the Albemarle Sound starts at the south end of Roanoke Island. The body of water to the west is called the Croatan Sound and the body of water to the east is called the Roanoke sound.

Things have changed today; The water is up and the geese are gone.

Hope you and your family have a great holiday.

Reverse what I said above the Pamlico Sound is south and the Albemarle sound is north :-)
