Full Moon.. Worth The Wait.

We started Friday as most mornings with coffee and then out to breakfast this time at a place called The Grits Grill in Nags Head. We both had Hotcakes but not the grits. Afterwards we headed into Manteo and then the North West end over an older bridge into Mann's Harbor. The bridge is home to the Purple Martin that shows themselves in the early morning and evening. You can launch a kayak from the beach there and fish. From there we drove onto Hatteras Island over the Oregon Inlet to scope out a place to watch the full moon rise up from the ocean. Lunch was at the bar of Tortuga's Lie. Around 8PM we returned to the spot we picked and had the beach to OURSELVES, while waiting for a spectacular full moon rising that these shots just can not capture! I'll link more of the shots when we get home.
