Wordless Wednesday: Jockey’s Ridge Sand Castle

3283228748_92dcafd2b4_m

Jockey’s Ridge is a huge sand dune on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The Outer Banks are barrier islands that are constantly moving. Jockey’s Ridge moves with them, swallowing the properties on its perimeter. In this photo from 1999, I’m standing of what remained of a putt-putt course miniature castle, now barely visible. The scene has even changed since then — see other photos of the same area on Flickr.

    So a discount is offered to play the course, I presume?

    I think I’d be less distracted by the sand than by that woman in the jean shorts.
