Outer Banks, NC

A Beach, Lighthouse, and Gardens trip

Roanoke Island

Roanoke is home to the Lost Colony which was the first attempt at an English settlement in North America, but after five years the colonists had disappeared. We watched a play re-enacting the events, some of which were speculated on the small amount of evidence left.
