Wildlife Central: Outer Banks Edition



One of my favorite things to do anywhere we go is meet the natives. Here's a few of the locals that we ran into while visiting the Outer Banks late last month: 





 

 


I finally did a search for the red caterpillar and he's a Pandora Sphinx Moth. AMAZING!

My first lighthouse.



I've lived on the east coast for about 12 years now and I've finally visited my first lighthouse!

The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse on the Outer Banks of North Carolina is tallest brick lighthouse structure in the United States with 257 steps to the top. 








I actually found the way down more difficult and dizzying than the way up!

Do you have a favorite lighthouse?

And then these things happened...



We moved this little guy off of the hiking trail.
 


Visited our favorite town in Massachusetts.



Took the train down to the city.
 


Felt the power of belief. 
 


I hope you had a great week!

Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary II




My previous post was all work and no play so I wanted to take today to introduce you to some of the animals on the farm!
 
 








This last little guy is Pogo and it was all I could do not to stuff him into my purse and head for the hills!

Woodstock Animal Farm Sanctuary



The amazing company that I'm lucky enough to work for offers an allotted amount of days per year to use for volunteering. This was one such day :)
 
 








And what an amazing day it was! If you're ever in the area, I highly recommend stopping by
