hang gliding was probably the best adventure during our OBX vacay! it was something new, different & exhilarating FUN! it was a HOT Sunday morning when we trekked up the sand dunes. a whopping 131 degrees to be exact. there was plenty of water for everyone, but we also brought our own. we both managed to finish 6 bottles by the time we headed back down to receive our certificates & honestly, i could have had more.
i wish i had a better photo of the instructor pictured above, b/c he looked & sounded like Matthew Mcconaughey. he could easily pass as his brother for sure. it was surreal. i was going to say something to the guy, but i didn't. i'm sure he's been asked or told many times before, ha!
i had awesome take off & flight, but my landing was sure horrible, LOL! as you can see above, i'm about to crash into the sand, hahaha!
Tim had much better landing...he's got skillz ;)
oh, i can't wait to do this again. even though it was extremely hot, it was well worth the five flights!
when we headed back to the hotel, we quickly showered & rested. we were so burnt out, i couldn't think of doing anything else, LOL. i ended up napping for almost 2 hours...woke up just in time for happy hour ;) hahahaha!
for our last meal, we had dinner at the Black Pelican. their food was YUM! very cool setting, right off the by the water, which was nice!
before we went to see Savages, we stopped back at Trio to pick up a t-shirt for me. they had beer 50% off, too. we couldn't refuse, so we indulged in some cocktails before the movies :)
it was a GOOD day!!!
