TUESDAY 6/2 ON THE OBX. - Posted By: JimmyZ on 6/3/2020
Well the sun was out when I woke up. Then the clouds rolled in and finally the sun came out in the late afternoon. The temp was 70. The ocean was fairly calm and the strong winds were out of the ENE.

The June Coastal issue of Our State magazine has a good read about Outer Banks Distilling. If you've never been to Manteo or the distillery it's well worth a day trip.

DUNE BURGER - last year was a disappointment
We have always loved DB, but in 2018 we tried to go to Dune Burger. When we went, after we ordered informed us that they were out of beef patties, which seems really odd since that is the key thing that they sell. Then it was an ordeal getting our card credited.
