Night Sky in Hatteras, N.C.

Nightscape, Travel

So often our skies are filled with light pollution. We miss the beauty that Night Skies in OBXlies beyond the street lights. However, there are points in the OBX that allow for a better view.

Where we stayed in Hatteras, gave us the privilege of witnessing some of this natural beauty. The 180 degree view from the house allowed us to see for miles.

Nightly, we sat out on the deck enjoying the stars. However, this particular photo captured a faraway storm. The night sky would get dark and then occasionally a blip of light would be seen across the horizon.

It’s a reminder that natural beauty exists, but sometimes we have to sit still long enough to appreciate it. Our lives fly by at an incredible speed, yet we miss so much when we don’t take time to “breathe.”

The OBX Life

Travel

It’s been about a month since we went to the OBX. And we’re still missing this view. There’s nothing like starting your morning with breakfast on the deck, overlooking a 180 view of the bay. Or sitting outside for snacks while you watch the sunset. It was art in its natural state, true beauty.

Farm Show 2015

We’re taking a break from the OBX this week to feature two photos from the Pennsylvania Farm Show. The Farm Show is an event that takes place every January in Harrisburg, PA. One of the features is a butter sculpture that changes every year (yes, it’s a sculpture made from butter). The Farm Show also houses a variety of animals including cows, goats, chickens, bunnies, and more. Additionally, you can get a glimpse of chicks hatching and ducklings playing.

The event is also not short on food. There is an area for snack sampling and wine tasting. They also offer a packed food court, featuring delicious eats from maple cotton candy to potato doughnuts and apple cider.

These are just a few of the things that happen at the Farm Show. However, if you want to learn more, check out the PA Farm Show’s website.
