Believe the lady and I are going to make a long weekend trip to Buxton this weekend. Will have a rod or 3 with me but she is all about the shells. Other than the point, any good shelling locations? She can find shells while I am eating an Apple Ugly!
If shelling is the goal, take the ferry over to Ocracoke and spend the day. You can also wet a line or two. If shelling is REALLY the goal, try to get over to Portsmouth Island. I don't think any of the tours are running now though, so it might be hard to find a ride.
Hope you have a great time! We'll be in Hatteras Village the last week of May. Might try to get back to Portsmouth.
