Blogging From A to Z – O

“O” is for outer, as in the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

These barrier islands separate the Atlantic Ocean from the mainland and consist of:  Hatteras, Bodie, Oracoke, Roanoke, and Ile d’Ocracoke. The beaches, state parks, ship wreck diving sites, and lighthouses make this a popular vacation destination.

Over thirty years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, a group of 117 weary men, women and children waded ashore and made history on Roanoke Island in July 1587, establishing the first permanent settlement of its kind in the Americas.

Three years later the colony and all its inhabitants had vanished. Their fate has been the subject of many theories and the story is reenacted every summer during performances of  The Lost Colony, the nation’s longest symphonic drama. If you visit the Outer Banks, be sure to see this wonderful production!
