Cape Hatteras, North Carolina

New England is blessed with some nice beaches.  In my view, however, there are few beaches here to compare with the Cape Hatteras beach, which runs along the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.  It takes about 75 minutes to drive from Nags Head to Cape Hatteras, along Route 12.  Most of the way, the beach is about 100 yards away, at most. It lies just on the other side of the dunes.  These are barrier islands.  In places there may be less than 1/4 mile separating ocean from the Sounds.  They are made of sand, and they are moving. The Park Service is constantly battling the water that defines these islands. It is such a vast stretch of beach that even during the summer, you can easily go there, find a place to park, and if you walk a few hundred yards down the beach, you’ll be alone.  _DSC7839-Edit
