summer getaway: ocracoke island.

we spent most of day three on the beach collecting seashells before hopping on the ferry to ocracoke, another barrier island on the outer banks.  as a ferry boat veteran, i was rather impressed by the 30-car, 45-minute free ride to the island.  once you make land, it is about a 13-mile drive, sandy coasts on both sides, before you arrive at a string of little restaurants and shops.  we settled on dajio, a little seafood spot where we sat outside under strings of lights, drank local beers, and i enjoyed my first (ever!) oysters and clams before a delicious greek salad.

we obviously had to squeeze in a last sunset, too.  unbeatable ’round those parts.
