We awoke to a cold, frosty morning. Fortunately, the sun was shining, although the temperature never rose above the upper 40s all day. We decided that today would be a good time to ride to the Outer Banks, since the weather forecast is for rain all day tomorrow. Danny and Sandi joined us for the ride. We first visited the Currituck Lighthouse in Corolla, but were disappointed to find that it was still closed for the season. Spring flowers are blooming and trees are putting out new leaves. Spring temperatures will get here soon. Then we visited our son's beach house, which he named the Sand Bar, in Corolla. It is a three-story house with five bedrooms. A great place for family vacations. After touring the house, we were ready for lunch. We returned to Duck to the Red Sky Cafe, which our son had recommended. Great food! We all enjoyed the homemade tomato bisque before our sandwiches. After lunch, we visited a few shops in Duck along the waterfront. We particularly enjoyed seeing horse statues painted in different styles. On the way back to the campground, we stopped at the Cotton Gin, a popular gift shop on Hwy. 158 in Jarvisburg, NC. Wow! One could get lost in there! We purchased a couple of items and then returned to the North River Campground. We were pleased to see that three more of our Travelin' Tarheels coaches had arrived during the day. The remaining coaches should get here tomorrow.
