On the way to Nags Head we saw this beautiful sunset over fields the night before
didn't take long to disappear
Aah, the relaxing sound of waves crashing on shore
Not many seashells to be found. I found only a very few small ones.
The Name Nags Head as one legend has it is that a lantern was tied around an old gentle horse or "old nag"
and was led up and down large sand dunes so to be visible out to sea.
When a ships captain saw the bobbing light, he thought it an anchored ship in a harbor.
As the captain tried to put his ship into what he thought was a safe harbor , he shipwrecked in shoals that changed shape beneath the surface. Land pirates looted, then burned the ship and made away with the bounty. Another reason for the name that I have read is that it was named after Nags Head island in England.
After this down pour
Came down in sheets for a little while
A beautiful rainbow later
Looks like it's going into the sea
Another one of many places I would like to live. Maybe I should just visit more often.
