A visit to the Coinjock Marina. A few days later, we tied-up at this marina.
Always a wonderful woodworker, Ron shows off how to work a 'pedal lathe'. The lathe was set up in a replica of a small, colonial village.
This monument, in tribute to Orville and Wilbur Wright, sits atop the hill overlooking the field where they first succeeded with their four test flights, in Kitty Hawk/Kill Devil Hills.
"X" marks the spot where Orville and Wilbur flight tested.
The fourth stone, in the far distance, marks where their fourth attempt to fly landed - concluding that they had now succeeded in proving that man could fly!
Orville and Wilbur's 'camp' -replica buildings of where they lived and where they worked on building/repairing various parts of their flying machine.
Kitty Hawk...just one of many places I had always wanted to see...to think that we were standing where Orville and Wilbur stood...
