Since I was traveling solo this weekend, I stopped for dinner and waited for the sunset.

Vacation Day 6 – Hike 27 #52hikechallenge

We were not happy with last night’s campsite, muddy, bugs, so we moved again.

Clay, Kay and I headed out for a later afternoon hike on the Sawmill Trail. Lots of blown down trees to climb over, and LOTS of bear scat, no luck seeing one.

Sam and I walked down to the lake for the sunset, nice to have a quiet moment with the two of us! I am glad she suggested it.

The day was spent working, replacing wood, stucco work, etc.

Tonight Sam and I tried a short hike from Cone Manor to a field for the sunset. Folks showed up and we had a half dozen folks to watch tonight.

Then we headed back to find a place to camp for our 6:30am ferry.

Well crap, thunderstorm warning, lightning, and wind. We slept (or tried) in the truck cab till about 12:30am and gave up and set-up the Flippacs.

After the hike we camped for the night, waiting for our morning ferry to Cape Lookout – the South Core Banks. Kodak seemed happy to back at the beach.

We drove around looking for a secluded area to camp and found this fresh turtle track, she must have laid her eggs hours before.

This site is perfect, can’t see a camper down either side!
