In Duck

In Duck




It's Thursday night in Duck, top of the ridge. We're staying until tomorrowhave to go back a day early, I'm afraid. But our first storm, (apart from the windy effects of Chris,) is blowing fiercely outside. We're tucked, cozy in our rental cottage after a two week stay. I have no point really, it's only that our rental's satellite just went out and my wife is downstairs asleep with the dog. The Banks have been good to us this trip and it's hard going back. As I look out at the Lightning and the Outer Banks ghosts swirling about, I think of our notice of returning next year to the same cottage and at least we'll be back for our 17th year of visiting Duck so Chapel Hill doesn't see so bad. To those of you coming in or still here, have fun, watch out for rip tides eat well and we'll see you next year.

RE: In Duck




Departing is always the saddest part of any trip, however as you note it is mixed with the joy and anticipation of blocking in and return next year. I always look in my rear view mirror as I cross the causeway and remind myself that I will be back.

Im glad you had a good two weeks. I understand your perspective...its hard to put into words what makes a place special, it is always hard to leave.

So you will be in Chapel Hill this Fall? That’s my favorite season there! It’s so beautiful, Southern Part Of Heaven...
