I was in Duck the same week, have never stayed in the northern beaches, had a house in south Frisco for the week, no damage to house but of course that part is still closed until this Thursday. Anyway my question to you is, are the northern beaches always that hilly and the dunes really looked beat up to me. How much of dune do you think they lost there, since I never was up there I didn't have anything to compare them to? It was very nice there but I prefer Friso area, I think the sand there is so much smoother and the beaches are not hilly. The weather was wonderful, could have been a bit warmer but you get what you get. I did take a drive to Hatteras Island, since we go there all the time and it really was sad to see so much destruction and the sand clear to the soundside in places, I can't even imagine what Hatteras Village is like, other than the pictures I have seen. Good luck to all you guys down there and I sure hope you all get your lives back to normal in the upcoming months.
