Our family started coming to OBX in 1959 to Kitty Hawk. Beach was big and we stayed in a group of cottages 3 together. My dad put money down on the one we stayed at then and again in 1961. These 3 cottages disappeared in that storm been in KDH since. The picture always made my kids afraid seeing it and we were to drive to the Wright Memorial if something like that came in. Not sure how fast the car or us would get there!!
