Summer Reunion

This August we had a family reunion in the Outer Banks, NC. We (I lost count after two dozen) rented a beautiful beach house near Jennette's Pier in Nags Head for a week. It was a really memorable affair, and hopefully we will get around to doing it more often in the future.

On one of the days we went to the Wright Brothers National Memorial, which is built on the site of their first successful controlled flight. Their story is truly awe inspiring, and it is hard not to come back from the Memorial without a sense of immense respect for their hard work and ingenuity.

Interestingly, a week after we had been there, Hurricane Irene ripped through the Outer Banks. In fact, in one of the videos on Weather channel had the beach house we lived in, in the background. As someone remarked, we may have been the last people to have enjoyed the house.
