The Most Beautiful Sand Trap


Jockey's Ridge Janx

Welcome to Jockey's Ridge State Park, the largest sand dune on the East Coast. This free-form sandcastle, just a couple of blocks from the beach in Nags Head, NC, fluctuates from 80 to 100 feet tall & covers 420 acres. The park is located a couple of miles down the road from where the Wright Brothers flew their experimental aircraft at the turn of the last century. Today, all kinds of kite flyers & hang-gliders, well, hang out here.

When I want to chill, I go to NC's OBX. When I can't go to The OBX, I like to look at Superior Snaps of the beach & its environs. We've just finished a hectic 3rd quarter; 10 more weeks & counting. I've got Summer on the brain now, big-time.

Our Humble High School plans to close up shop on June 25th. I plan to be on the road to The OBX long before Principal Man says his final goodbyes. A couple of weeks of sand & suntan lotion are in order, don't you think?

Wow, that's a beautiful sky....I have never seen such an enormous dune...Glad there are at least beach snaps to ease the pain of Principal Man....You should have a field trip to OBX.
