Cape Lookout

From here we headed north looking for the perfect camp spot (read no other people, waves and soft sand)

For some reason I didn’t take any more pictures today, setting up camp, twice since Sam’s tent was not happy in the wind. Cooking dinner and sharing food with friends until everyone was ready to go to bed early.
