Surprise trip to Kill Devil Hills, Kitty Hawk, and Duck NC

One morning, as I was lazily finishing breakfast, Tom told me to get ready and that we were going for a ride. He wouldn't tell me what his plans were. What a great surprise! We went to see the Wright Memorial.

This boulder marks the spot where the first flight started.

The white marker on the right in this photo shows how far the first flight was off the ground.

The marker way down by the brush is where the "official" flight ended.

The dune they used when practicing with gliders.

Had to add this as we don't see signs like this at home.

The visitor center is currently closed for remodeling. It will reopen in 2018.

Our amazing tour guide, Jessica Filson. No one else showed up for the tour so we had her all to ourselves. We were extra thrilled when we discovered she is a Mansfield University graduate!

A shot we will send to the Alumni Association.
