Remembering a long ago Thanksgiving.....my first on on the Banks. 1978

It was magical.

It’s where I’d be this Thanksgiving if my wish could come true.

Yes
So very different.

From where I was sitting in that picture I could out toward the sound without another house in view.

Thanks, OBX Dreaming
That house, the SeaLove, is still there although it’s been changed so much and there are so many houses surrounding it that it’s hard to pick out.

It was so wild and free back then.
At least compared to now.

I’m trying to remember if there were any grocery stores other than driving over to Manteo. Maybe Seamark?
I know at some point (maybe in an earlier trip) we had to go to Manteo to shop.
