The beach in NC was different from the beach in Virginia. They had pebbles under the sea, instead of sand. We saw several jellyfish, and decided to stay out of their way.
I felt a little uncomfortable at this beach, as far as swimming was concerned. My dad warned me that there was an abrupt drop-off between the area who could stand up in and the area where you can’t. So we stood in the area where the waves broke on the shore. The trick is to stand up right away when you’re knocked down. Otherwise, you can get sucked back out with the wave (just a little) or you’ll get to ride the next wave further into the shore. 🙂 It all worked out, once we got the hang of it.
There are loads of other pictures here, including pictures from Kitty Hawk (First Flight Monument) and the Farmer’s Market.
