First stop was the Hammock Hills Nature Trail directly opposite Ocracoke Campground. Both are located in the Cape Hatteras National Seashore and are managed by the National Park Service. The 3/4 mile loop trail meanders through a maritime forest with tall pines to a salt water marsh.
Fishing on the beach opposite the Pony Pens.
Wading bird. Too tired to ID it now. I'll do that when we get home.
Howard Street is one of the oldest streets on the island. A very pleasant shaded walk.
Good advice for driving on Howard Street!
