Duck 9/8-15/19 Trip Report




First of all my best wishes to all those devastated by Hurricane Dorian.
I’m so happy to be in Duck. My wonderful daughter-in law sent me some house links a few weeks ago and asked me to pick the one I liked the most for a family get together, so here we are. What a generous surprise. Thank you kids.
Day 1 – Sunday 9/8 - We watched the storm as it moved up the coast and didn’t think our check in would happen on Sunday, but Dare County and Twiddy surprised us. When we got into NC the traffic volume picked up. Morris Market, lines were long so we continued on and stopped for a little visit with our daughter and grands on the Currituck Sound mainland. They had their power back on by then. The traffic headed north on 158 was loaded with bucket trucks headed home. Thank you power people. Got to Jarvisburg and hit a standstill. Took us over an hour to reach WMB and then it moved easily into Duck.
Day 2 – Monday 9/9 – Woke very early to the sound of thunder. Lighting and heavy rain continued all morning. The house has a view from its sandy ridge of the Duck Rd. and Currituck Sound. All day long the traffic headed north was bumper to bumper stop and go. Twiddy responded quickly to trouble ticket requests and we relaxed in the pool and hot tub after the storms had cleared. Cottage is beautiful, recently updated and just the right size for the whole family. By sunset the traffic jam headed north had cleared.
Day 3 – Tuesday 9/10 – Beautiful day here. Headed to HT (well stocked) in KH for supplies and SC peaches from the Duck Green Farm Stand. Beach time and a late lunch at Village Table and Tavern. We were the only people there and both enjoyed the crab cake sandwich with a view. Pool time and sunset from the deck.

Nice! How is Duck doing? Enjoy your trip!

What did you think of Village Table and Tavern? I’ve been there a bunch of times and they struggle with consistency imo.

Day 4 - started with blue and pink skies and coffee on the deck before heading to Art’s Place for a tasty breakfast. Next to Avalon Pier to take a short walk and look around. They were busy making repairs to the roof and securing the end section that was taken out. Stopped at Tullios Bakery to order a special cake and then picked up delicious tuna steak from Dockside in Duck. Beach, pool, relaxed. Waiting for our son and wife to arrive tonight.

Day 5 – Thursday 9/12 – Wind had changed direction and when the kids arrived last night the Midges were waiting on the front door for them. Pesky, but don’t bite. Watched the deer on the Research Pier property from the deck. It was a beautiful beach day, took a walk down to the Duck Pier, relaxed in the pool and fixed shrimp Alfredo dinner in. Took in the Harvest Moon over the ocean and watched a gal with a fire hoop by the ocean as the moon rose in the night sky. Family time memories are the best.

Thank you friends for all your kind words Alphatic, jdj1991, judyk, nehall & KelLovesOBX
