The night before heading out on a weeklong backpacking trip in the Laurel Highlands in Pennsylvania I was restless in a second floor room in our B&B. The night was beautiful and I look out onto an expanse of field between the home and the mountains. I was mesmorized by the seemingly continuation of the fireflies and this starry night.

We took the island ferry to Ocracoke on the Outer Banks to attend their summer music festival.
The weather was perfect so that in the mornings i could go for a beach run. In the evenings all over the island musicians played in different venues. The central park was set up with a stage and lighting and there was something magical about the stars, lightening bugs, and good music that made it a vacation to dream about during those long Ohio winters.
