OBX Pegasi

Before the centennial celebration of the Wright Brothers flight at Kitty Hawk/Kill Devil Hills, a local arts organization organized the decorating and display of 99 winged horses, many of them along Hwy 158 and NC 12. Around 70 or so of them are still around - this one is named "Shiner" and sits along the highway outside of Kitty Hawk Kites in Nags Head across from Jockey's Ridge. And yeah, that is the mini-golf castle there on the dune ridge (see the picture I posted a few days ago). I don't know if they've suffered the kind of damage and theft from vandals that other public art often does, but it's wonderful to see so many of them still there and seemingly in good shape! You can see more of them here, but I particularly like this sunset view. Enjoy!

I believe Some Australian boys while a bit inebriated stole one of the horses from the roof of one of the local restaurants. They were caught, fined and the horse was returned to its un-amused owner
