Cape Hatteras National Seashore

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Here are some photos from Cape Hatteras National Seashore, at the very southern tip of Hatteras Island. We didn’t do much here except walk around, though we did come back the next day to visit the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum.

The grassy vegetation here is typical for the Outer Banks.

In particular, Sea Oats were everywhere. Apparently some of these were planted by the Civilian Conservation Corps to prevent erosion. The island is basically a giant hunk of sand that’s constantly changing and eroding, due to the ocean waves and the constant winds.

Indian Blanket was also common.

I am not sure, but I think this little guy who washed up on shore is a Blue Button.

So, this was a fun little excursion that didn’t take more than half an hour. It was well worth it! The fact that I didn’t have a bicycle allowed me to focus more on photography, which was a welcome change of pace.
