Our second and final day on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We planned to race through the southern chain of islands and hopefully reach somewhere between Charleston and Wilmington for the night, while trying to have as much fun as possible on the islands. It will be a packed day.

It was end of May and beginning of summer, and I decided my adventures should go a little bit farther than usual, and there came this trip to the Carolina’s.
So on the afternoon of May 30th, I went to New Jersey to pick up a dear friend and very good companion for the trip, and we set off for Norfolk, Virginia the next morning. It was 4pm by the time we drove past Yorktown, as we decided that
- We would be driving into rush hour traffic of Norfolk, which would be bad.
- I had been driving for hours that day without any sightseeing, which would be boring.
Since Yorktown Colonial National Historical Park was just nearby (actually I could see the spire of Victory Monument as I crossed York River), we decided to pay it a visit.

First week of November, when autumn was in its prime, my friends at the trails club organized this hiking trip to Catoctin Mountain. It turned out that autumn colors were spectacular this time of the year in the countryside.
