Not too long ago I posted a photo of the top of the "buried castle" under Jockey's Ridge. The turrets are part of the castle that is part of the putt putt course that has long been hidden under lots and lots of sand.

Nice People

I think one of the best things from visitors here on the Outer Banks is how nice they think most people who live here are. From shopkeepers to wait staff to doctors and medical professionals, surfers, fishermen and other locals. Well, we, all of us, should be nice and kind and polite and considerate to each other. Always, or most of the time anyway.
