We had a very enjoyable visit to the national seashore. We drove the entire length with another couple. We stopped at the Pea wildlife refuge and the lighthouse. It was February so we didn't 't walk on the beach. This is a must experience when visiting the Outer Banks. But

Once we were in Cape Hatteras and at Frisco Woods Campground, we took the F150 out to one of the gate entry ways nearby and we were able to drive on the beach and get a good spot for the day.

As we were headed to dinner we pulled off into Salvo to view the sunset. Beautiful view of the sound and the sun as it set for the evening.

The National Park Service has done a great job here. Beautiful area to drive through, informative park rangers, and nice visitor centers. We were there not long after Matthew and they had done a great job getting back in shape. Just a beautiful, restful day.
