Sunday, June 9
After the nice sunrise, I ate a Pro-bar and a handful of prunes for breakfast, and drank a cup of hot tea while sitting on the beach. Even though it was so warm that I slept most of the night lying on top of my flimsy sleeping bag liner, the hot tea with honey hit the spot. The sun was already warm, and my clothing was still totally damp in the humid salt air. It was pretty clear that my next dry clothing would be in about 36 hours.
After doing several miles of beach combing, I decided that I would spend a good bit of the day hiking. Chris and Carl decided to spend the day around camp and maybe get in their tents for some shade (that later proved impossible, as it was like 120 degrees in the tents in the peak of the day). I went back to camp, packed my lunch, some emergency gear, and three liters of water, and started walking east. My goals were to (1) find some great shells (2) see some wildlife and (3) reach the east end of Shackleford Banks where it should only be about a mile for the Cape Lookout Lighthouse. The map at the end of this post shows where I walked.
I had already found some good shells the day before and in the early morning, but I wanted more.
It is a wild and beautiful beach there.
