Outer Banks Scouting Trip
By Sandy Schenck
The highlight of the scouting trip for all of us was getting out on the water. Saturday, Allison and Stephen paddled from the town of Beaufort out to Shackleford Island and Cape Lookout. A total of 10 miles! Shackleford is the home to roughly 120 wild horses in addition to miles of shore and sea life. Allison, a marine science teacher, was able to point out multiple creatures along the paddle including a conch laying her eggs!
Phen and I took the ferry from Harker’s Island and met our rock-star paddlers on Cape Lookout. We all explored the seashore, Phen played in the sand (and ate some too!), and then we took the ferry back to Harker’s to conclude our day.
We still have a few spots open in OBX 3, and 1 spot remaining in OBX 2. Don’t wait to sign up – this is a trip you won’t want to miss.
