Let's start off with the name, and how to pronounce it. Locals will tell you, in a skinny minute, that it is pronounced Kuh-RAH-Luh...not like the car. Kuh-RAH-Luh. Corolla is located in Currituck County, on the northern Outer Banks.
The other day I posted a photo on Facebook that showed some deer right on the oceanfront in Kill Devil Hills. Someone expressed surprise that there were deer here. There are, a lot of them, and other wildlife too.
I have had many jobs since moving here in 1972...retail, restaurants, hotel and then vacation rentals. I have even had several jobs while with Village Realty for the past 11 years. My current position is handling social media; Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, blogging, etc.
I had heard good things about Cafe Franco's for a while but honestly, I don't eat out a lot in the summer. However, my oldest daughter and her husband took me there last night. Wow. It was outstanding. Everything. Nice atmosphere.
One of the most fun parts of my job is that I get to give away stuff, good stuff, via Facebook all year long. Things like gift certificates to restaurants, comp tickets to concerts, swag bags, and more.
