Get some energy going before you visit Jockey's Ridge if you plan to hike up the sand dune. It's longer then it looks! :)
I was amazed at this beautiful site. I was in awe of the massive dunes. My Grandson, daughter in law and son went sand boarding. The views were breathtaking from the top of the dunes. I have to admit , I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was truly amazed at the fun and beauty of Jockey's Ridge.
