Here I am under the Avalon Fishing Pier. We walked about 30 blocks! (OK, it wasn't 30, but if sure felt like it!)
If you have 4 wheel drive you can drive right on the beach in Corova, and places like that. It is a must for seeing the sights.
From 1981-83, we had a blue Buick station wagon that went several times to the Outer Banks and many more times to and from Grandma's house.
