KURT'S 2016 VACATION REPORT 8/28 - 9/4 IN AVON, NC - Posted By: kurthi on 8/29/2016
In 24 hours, I hope be somewhere close to the Wawa at Hillcrest Parkway, on our way to Avon for our 2016 Vacation!!! This year is a one week trip, after three straight years of two week vacations. Instead of dwelling on that, we intend to make every day count. This year, we will be in Avon, instead of Frisco. That means we won’t be staying the home of Friscofan1, Herons Haven. Instead, we will... [Read Full Post]

BACK FROM OUR 1ST TWO WEEK TRIP - Posted By: shaefins on 8/29/2016

LAZINESS PAYS OFF! - Posted By: Greg MD on 8/29/2016
The tomatoes are coming in faster than we can eat them so it's time to start saving them by making fresh sauce for the winter when it will be most welcome. BUT... scalding and peeling a couple dozen is a pain. Feeling lazy today, I just cored and seeded them and tossed them into the pot. I figured the immersion blender would annihilate them later. After two hours of simmering, the peels were curl... [Read Full Post]

MANHUNT IN DUCK - Posted By: OBXYaYa on 8/29/2016
Apparently a police manhunt is going on in Duck this morning for a very unsavory character. Keep your doors locked and your eyes open.

Hi! We just arrived in SS tonight. Our house we rented is great. But there are ants coming in from the kitchen window and onto the counters . I figured that might be something the agency would want to hear about? Just because it could be a bigger problem down the road? I don't want to be a pain in the butt though. It got me thinking, what else do they want to hear about? We found t... [Read Full Post]

RUNDOWN CAFE - Great food once again
We stop by every time we are in the Outer Banks. This past July we had the nachos, big wave dave, jerk burger and the softshell crab sandwich. Everything was fresh tasting and delicious.

I GOT YOUR CRABS - disappointed
This past July we ordered for take out a dozen oysters, fried flounder and 2 oyster sandwiches. Only 2 or 3 of the oysters were steamed opened, we called and we were told that they don't always open and they should be good. Being on vacation we did not take the chance. The oyster sandwiches were fine but the fried flounder was so fishy tasting it I could not eat it.

BOB'S GRILL - Consistently Good
We always stop at Bob's for brunch after checking out. Their menu is diverse and always has something for everyone. I always get the same thing every time we go and I've never had an issue.

DUNES RESTAURANT - Will be back for sure!
3 of us went out searching for a dinner on a Saturday night. We stopped somewhere else but it was over an hour wait for a table. Someone had recently told me about The Dunes, so I figured we would give it a try. We were a bit weary after pulling in to a nearly empty parking lot at 8pm. We were pleasantly surprised! Our waitress was friendly and fast! Calamari and Fried Pickles were great! All of o... [Read Full Review]

I GOT YOUR CRABS - I will never go back
While on vacation I thought I would give this place a try. The prices for crabs were crazy expensive but I decided to get some since I was on vacation and wanted to treat myself. I waited at the counter ( as signed stated to do) for over ten minutes for someone to take my order.The girls working behind the counter looked my way several times but never asked if they good help me.After this long wai...
