The blog returns to Winston with many happy memories of a short but major (by the blog's standards, which are admittedly very low) trip to Avon in the Outer Banks. There is much of interest to report, including a new obelisk sighting, but for today the blog is enjoying two photos from its visit this morning to The Wright Brothers National Monument. The first shows Nate gamely assisting Orville; the second is a charming detail from the beautiful art deco door in the monument at the top of Kill Devil Hill.
