6/04: Monday. More water brings more bridges, some large ones. We went on to Roanoke Island. Stopped at the visitor's center and got some information. Camp sites are very expensive in this area, and mostly booked now. It'll be harder with school out now. We went to the Roanoke Island Festival Park and parked there to walk around the water area. There's a couple blocks of eating/shopping places. Went to the Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse, probably the smallest one I've seen. From there we went to the next island, not able to drive along the coast. There's houses or businesses on either side. Went to Kill Devil Hills to the Wright Brothers National Memorial. I always thought it was at Kitty Hawk, but it wasn't. Kitty Hawk is the next town over. It's an interesting place to visit, well worth the $4 each we had to pay. The pavilion was closed due to a storm they recently had. (Seems like every place we stop, something is always closed.) It's interesting, as a tourist place, these islands are not near as pretty or kept-up like some of the other ones. Maybe they're not that much of a tourist place.
