Bayberry for Candles...

Combing the beaches this morning brought us to a picnic area with a historic marker of a battleship lost to the Confederacy early in the Civil War.  This is bayberry and it grows wild and prolific on this island.  It also grows on the other Cape where we spend  winters.  Does anybody want to make candles?

In our quest to find the end of the earth here on Hatteras Island, we stopped at Cape Hatteras Light Station.  Wow!  History and beauty surrounded us; I was so fascinated that I took 89 pictures. 

We kept driving until there was no more earth to drive on.

After this, there is nothing but water unless to take the ferry to Ocracoke Island.

We are leaving in the morning.  Who knows what tomorrow may bring?
