One of the great prides of my home state of North Carolina is the Outer Banks. The narrow, 200-mile-long string of barrier islands sits off the North Carolina coast—a harrowing surprise for ships, but a peaceful and absurdly beautiful place for people. Horses run wild on the beaches, kicking up sand and frolicking in the waves.
