Wright Brothers Memorial

While in the Outer Banks, we walked the dogs around at the Wright Brothers Memorial in Kitty Hawk.
I'm not an aviation or history buff, but I still found it interesting. The monument and statues provided some good photo opportunities  :) 
Trekking up the large hill to the monument. Porter says "Thank goodness for 4-Paw-Drive!"
I guess this was originally one of the dunes they soared from.
But they reworked it from sand to something that would hold a monument  :)


I love this photo.

John is such a good sport when it comes to my photo-taking  :)

Stout is slowly becoming the super model that Porter is: his poses are improving (along with his "stays")

This was a life-size recreation of the first flight.
Right behind my head is the bronze guy lying down on the wing.
This FREAKED Porter out. He barked & barked, and only barked more when the statue didn't move...

  1. Neat! I've never been to the OBX, so haven't seen the memorial. You would think w/ how close we are (5 hours) I'd have gone at least once, but we always go to Myrtle.
