Outer Banks: The Lost Colony

My last blog from my four day weekend to the Outer Banks. My friend and I went to Roanoke Island to watch the outdoor drama about "The Lost Colony."

What's the Lost Colony? Here the explainer courtesy of Between 1585 and 1587, several groups attempted to establish a colony, but either abandoned the settlement or disappeared. The final group of colonists disappeared after three years elapsed without supplies from the Kingdom of England during the Anglo-Spanish War, leading to the continuing mystery known as "The Lost Colony". One possible explanation is that they were assimilated into the local indigenous tribes.

The show has been being performed since 1937. North Carolina native Andy Griffith reformed a few summers in this show in the early 40's.
