Kitty Hawk, North Carolina – Big Trip 2019

Wednesday 5 June – sunny with a high 28-30 Celsius today.    We left Williamsburg and got to Kitty Hawk, North Carolina in about four hours.  The States are pretty close together, doesn’t take long to get from one to another.   Not like the provinces in Canada.

Side Note  –  Here are some key facts about Ontario’s geography, which is where I live.  The longest east-west distance in Ontario is 1,568 kilometres (974 miles). The longest north-south distance is 1,691 kilometres (1,050 miles).  It would take 24 hours of non-stop driving to get across the province of Ontario.  And Ontario is not even our largest province or territory.  Quebec is our largest.
