Recently returned from a week long vacation to The Outer Banks in North Carolina. We stayed in an ocean side house in Nags Head, but we traveled around a bit up to Corolla and Duck and over to Roanoke Island to go to Manteo and Wanchese. Also drove through Alligator River Nature Preserve in search of black bear. Here is a Google Maps link to the area if you are not familiar.

One of the outstanding places for me was the Elizabethan Gardens.

The Gardens are a tribute to the first English colonists in the New World.

I just though I would share a few images of the grounds while I was there. I actually went 2 times because the first day we went, it rained pretty heavily when we got to about half way through.

Looks like a really nice area for visiting. :cool:

I know #28 was likely intentional but it might be a good candidate for the "Pareidolia" challenge.

Nice series. My wife and I visited Manteo and the Outer Banks once, many years ago. We only spent a few days, but I enjoyed it a lot more than the larger, highly commercialized eastern beaches. I imagine it has changed a lot in the last 30 years.
