Here are some pictures from the trip I took to see my brother Jim in N Carolina November 16, 2003. It was significant to an aero. engineer on the 100th anniversary of the Wright Brothers first flight.
The weather was good on the beach at the hotel.
The motel was close to big Kill Devil Hill and they were having a Shrine ceremonial there that weekend.

Jim would like to do something with his back yard which has a really steep drop off, but not this fancy.
