I get asked this question quite often, both in a professional and a personal capacity. I have lived here so long that I am used to the fact that storms and hurricanes are just a part of life on the Outer Banks.
I posted a question on our Facebook page the other day asking for help in choosing a blog topic. It is August, and my brain is tired, so I wanted suggestions on what to write about. And I got them, a lot of them.
Whew...August is here. One thing those of us who live here know for sure is that summer creeps in and then flies by. Really fast. Probably just like your vacation week seems to you. From mid July to mid August, we are either at 100% occupancy or very close to it.
During the summer season, many of our restaurants stay busy. So busy that you may sometimes have to wait to be seated. The wait staff is working hard to get you seated, get your order in...the kitchen help is cooking, broiling, frying and prepping. Busy Busy Busy.
Well, summer is officially here now according to the calendar. Hot days, lots of sun, ocean waves, seafood, ice cream and happy families. That is how it should be. We want you to be happy and we want you to be safe while here.
