Ease into Outer Banks fun with a water slide that's as kid-friendly as it is fun.
From the bow of our sailboat, we saw the pelicans dive into the waves. Again and again, they plunged from the clear sky into the water, landing just feet from where we sat. She clapped her hands and laughed as she watched. Suddenly, I had an idea: why should the birds have all the fun? I tossed a small float into the ocean. "Let's go, little pelican!" We jumped into the refreshing water, doing our best impression of the hungry pelicans. Her smile grew wider with every dive. What a fun afternoon!
