A Jolly Good Place

To Dine And Play

W

“We just like to make people happy and see them enjoy a good meal. We treat them like they’re in our home. That’s what makes us who we are,” -Owner Carol Ann Angelos.

BESt BREaKFaSt ON thE BEach… iNclUDiNg OUR Daily $3.99 SpEcial

Featuring Two Eggs,Any Style With Homefries, Grits or Apples & Homemade Toast!

The Locals’ Favorite Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

hen you first catch sight of The Jolly Roger, you might be unsure exactly what to think of it. Since its conversion from a gas station/grocery store to a restaurant in 1972, The Jolly Roger has been anything but your ordinary Outer Banks restaurant. “We’re eclectic, it’s crazy. You’ll not find another Jolly Roger; there’s no rhyme or reason to this place—and that’s what people love about it,” says owner Carol Ann Angelos. It’s been 33 years since Angelos took ownership of Jolly, and over the years she has experienced many changes, including three expansions and a renovation after Hurricane Isabel in 2003. Although the restaurant has gone through several changes over the years, Carol Ann’s style is unaltered. The restaurant decor is an eclectic blend of Christmas, pirate paraphernalia, aquatic murals, handmade boutique-style gifts and old-time movie posters. Almost as diverse as the restaurant itself is the food selection. The Jolly Roger is open year-round for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and they offer something for everyone. Breakfast favorites include the Eggs Benedict, pancakes and home fries—all made in-house from fresh ingredients. Great lunch selections include burgers, NY diner sandwiches and even meatloaf. For dinner the restaurant offers a wide variety, from Italian, fresh seafood, steaks & prime rib. All of the restaurant’s sauces are house-made from scratch, and everything is taste-tested to ensure the absolute best quality food is being served. When it comes to food specials, The Jolly Roger is simply unbeatable. Among the most popular are the daily Early Bird Specials. Topping the list, the Buy-OneGet-One FREE Italian Specialties Dinner Entree, offered daily, followed by the World Famous Prime Rib Friday Nights for $11.95 with two sides, Saturday Night’s Lobster Mania offering two 1 pound lobsters with baked potato and coleslaw for only $19.95 as well as Lobster Mac and Cheese with two lobster claws, also at the low price of $19.95! Specials truly are special at The Jolly, and you never need worry about sacrificing quality for price - even when the prices seem too good to be true. For those looking for entertainment, there’s always something fun happening here. During the winter they host live poker events, Buzz Time NTN with weekly tournaments and contests… plus nightly karaoke year-round, hosted by local’s favorite D.J. Hambone. Over the years, Angelos has encountered a bit of pressure from some customers to change her style and “fit in” to match the times. But she has always found that

Constructed initially as a filling station in 1936, this eclectic building evolved into the Jolly Roger in 1972. By 1984, current owner Carol Ann Angelos kicked things into high gear by serving breakfast, lunch & dinner.


EaRly BiRD DiNNER SpEcial Between 4:30-5:30pm

BUy ONE - gEt ONE The Jolly’s authenticity and originality is what keeps happy guests coming back time and again. “I was almost ready to sand down the booths, give in, do another color, but that wasn’t what I wanted to do,” Angelos says. “People love it the way it is.” From the unique atmosphere to the unmistakably home-cooked cuisine, everything about The Jolly Roger is welcoming, warm and completely unlike any other restaurant in the area. -by Chelsea Sherman

ith a variety of adventures around every corner, as well as plenty of space to just spread out a beach towel and relax, the Outer Banks can be paradise to just about anyone. Protruding out into the Atlantic Ocean, the Outer Banks is primarily made up of sand, beautiful marshes and trees. On one side, clean ocean waters wash up against pristine beaches; on the other, peaceful sound waters provide safe harbors for boats and lagoons for wildlife. The thin strip of land in between is at the mercy of wind and water, resulting in a rugged terrain of windswept sand dunes, maritime forests, flatlands and marshes. For such a thin stretch of land, the Outer Banks is packed with a long list of activities, adventures and attractions. Surfing, fishing, stand up paddleboarding, kayaking, golfing, hang gliding, parasailing, jet skiing, wildlife spotting, lighthouse climbing and sailing are just a few of the activities that are available any time of the year from Corolla to Ocracoke Island. The remainder of our welcome to you has been compiled by Kip Tabb, a local and long-time native of the Outer Banks who has kept track of all the awards and nominations the Outer Banks has received over the years. With his personal thoughts, research and local knowledge, you will quickly learn just why the Outer Banks is so special to both its visitors and locals alike. With so much to see and do around the area, it’s not surprising that these popular barrier islands keep showing up on “Best of” lists. The latest? The Outer Banks was chosen by U.S. News & World Report as the No. 1 Best Family Beach Vacation in the USA. It’s nothing new that the Outer Banks has been recognized as a place of charm and beauty—it’s been ongoing for 430 years.

Hyperbole? Perhaps, but he was writing about Roanoke Island, and to this day, there are still farms there. There is no way of knowing just how many “best 1201 S.

U.S. News & World Report | March 2016 “Best Family Beach Vacation in the USA” Ranked No. 1, U.S. News & World Report wrote, “Why go: Outer Banks beaches are lauded for their consistent-yet-manageable waves and verdant landscape.” The Outer Banks has ranked No. 1 for five years in a row.

OnlyInYourState.com | Aug. 2015 “Here Are The 10 Most Beautiful, Charming Small Towns In North Carolina” OnlyInYourState.com chose Manteo and said, “For Outer Banks charm, minus the crowd, check out Manteo. Stroll along the boardwalk or seashore.”

Fox News | July 2015 “America’s Best Boardwalks” “If the hustle and bustle of most traditional boardwalks turns you off, try this one,” Fox News wrote about Town of Duck.

Business Insider | June 2015 “The 23 Best Beaches in America” Named No. 1 Best Beach in America, Business Insider said, “Cape Hatteras— located in North Carolina’s Outer Banks—takes the top spot on this year’s list.”

10 Best | June 2015 “10Best Island Escapes You Can Drive To” Aerial view of Jennette’s Pier

Continued from Page 14

Hatteras in the Top 10 American Beaches every year since at least 2000—that’s as far back as the research went—and rated Ocracoke as the Best U.S. Beach in 2007. After achieving the No. 1 rating, a beach is not included in future lists. The 2015 rank for Cape Hatteras placed it at No. 5. Kill Devil Hills was awarded as one of USA Today’s “10 Destinations Where the Weather’s Just Right” in April of 2014. As a way to show how often the Outer Banks is recognized, Kip Tabb has compiled a sampling of some of the mentions for the Outer Banks over the past year.

“Off the coast of North Carolina, the barrier islands of the Outer Banks are connected by a coastal highway, offering easy access to many great beaches and attractions…,” 10Best said.

The Saturday Evening Post | May/June 2015 “America’s 10 Best Beaches” The Saturday Evening Post named Cape Hatteras Lighthouse Beach No. 4 and wrote, “Wow factor: The beach is part of a narrow barrier island jutting 30 miles into the Atlantic, so its landmass is forever changing.”

AARP | May 2015 “9 Thrilling Drives Across America” The Dare Trail (Highway 12) was named one of “9 Thrilling Drives Across America.” AARP wrote, “Skimming along barrier islands that form Cape Hatteras and rising only a few feet above sea level, the highway sometimes succumbs to the seething Atlantic Ocean just yards away.”

The Telegraph | March 2015 “10 of America’s Best State Parks” “Covering 426 acres of maritime forest and sand dunes, this North Carolinan state park is home to the tallest dune system in the eastern U.S.,” The Telegraph wrote about Jockey’s Ridge State Park.

USA Today | 2015 10 Best Readers’ Choice Travel Awards: Best Coastal Small Town USA Today wrote, “The far northern community of Duck, named for the abundant waterfowl that have long attracted hunters to the area, in the North Carolina Outer Banks is an upscale resort town boasting lots of restaurants and shops and a reputation for its beautiful beaches.”

Yahoo Travel | June 2014 “Say ‘I Do’ at the Most Sought After Destination Wedding Spots” “Outer Banks weddings are not your typical beach weddings,” Yahoo Travel wrote. “This string of narrow islands off North Carolina is known for its natural windswept beauty and unique landscape.”

10Best | June 2014 “Outdoor Concert Venues You Shouldn’t Miss!” “The Outer Banks, the sand-swept playground off of the coast of North Carolina, is also home to America’s longest running dramatic musical,” 10Best said about The Lost Colony.

WorldGolf | April 2014 “Three OBX Courses Crack N.C. Golf Panel’s Top 100 Courses List” WorldGolf named Currituck Club (No. 76), Kilmarlic (No. 89) and Nags Head (No. 97) in their Top 100 Courses list.

Kip Tabb’s Personal “Best of” Best Lighthouse View: Bodie Island Lighthouse— Cape Hatteras, Currituck Beach and Bodie Island Lighthouses can all be climbed and are all worth the effort, but the view from the top of Bodie Island across the marsh and wetlands is absolutely breathtaking.

Best Walking Village: Tie between Ocracoke and

Bodie Island Lighthouse

Duck—It’s impossible to choose a favorite here. Both feature family-owned businesses, galleries and excellent restaurants. The Duck Boardwalk is exquisite, but it’s hard to choose against the 19th-century charm of Ocracoke.

Best Maritime Forest: Nags Head Woods—A tough choice with four protected maritime forests on the Outer Banks, Nags Head Woods, Buxton Woods, Kitty Hawk Woods and Currituck Banks. Nags Head Woods wins because it is so unexpected—with steep elevation gains and deep ravines, and when listening carefully, there is always the sound of surf in the background. The Outer Banks is an amazing place to live or visit. The beauty of our beaches, the spectacular sunsets and the rich, diverse environments created by the convergence of the sea and the sound has shaped something unlike any other place elsewhere. There are plenty of reasons why the Outer Banks has become so popular. Use this guide to plan an Outer Banks adventure, from the sound to the sea and everywhere in between.

Enjoy your stay!

Hang Gliding

J

ockey’s Ridge has been witness to the entire evolution of hang gliding. When hang gliding gained popularity in the 1970s, Jockey’s Ridge became one of the premier spots in the world for beginners to safely learn the sport. The combination of inspiring views, soft sand and ocean winds draws adventurers from all over the world to learn to fly. In the first days of hang gliding, pilots could be seen walking out to Jockey’s Ridge with a roll of cellophane, an arm full of bamboo and a roll of duct tape to build their glider and fly it. The sport was just beginning, and Jockey’s Ridge was a perfect place to practice. These dunes are still a perfect place to practice, although we have come a long way since the “Bamboo Butterfly.” Gliders have become so efficient that, with the right wind conditions, pilots can stay aloft for hours along the lift band of the ridge. In addition, hang gliding is now statistically safer than most other forms of personal recreation. With these advances in technology and safety, hang gliding has become very popular and today the sport is pursued by thousands of people in the United States alone. The origins of hang gliding can be traced back to the 1950s, when Dr. Francis Rogallo (1912–2009) decided there must be a way for the general public to experience the joy of flying. At the time he was working for what would eventually be called NASA, and although they

would not allow him to pursue his theory as an official project, they did authorize him to work on his concept on his own time. With the help of his wife Gertrude, Dr. Rogallo designed a flexible wing that could be steered and could glide forward through the air as it descended. All future hang gliders would be based on Rogallo’s patented design, giving Dr. Rogallo worldwide recognition as the “Father of Hang Gliding.” He was revered not only by all hang glider pilots, but also by the entire aviation community. Thousands of people a year flock to Jockey’s Ridge to understand what it felt like for the Wright Brothers, Rogallo, and others to take their first flight. The most common flights on the dunes are training flights (short flights from the top of the hill to the bottom). Jockey’s Ridge’s resident hang gliding school, Kitty Hawk Kites Flight School, which is the largest hang gliding school in the world, offers these training flights daily. Kitty Hawk Kites has been teaching the world to fly on Jockey’s Ridge since 1974. The school has contributed to hang gliding history as the host to the longest running hang gliding competition, the Hang Gliding Spectacular, held on Jockey’s Ridge each May. Just as the dunes saw the dreams of Dr. Rogallo come to life, the dreams of thousands of people each year come true as their feet pull away from the earth and they glide over the sands of Jockey’s Ridge.

OUTER BANKS DRONE

En Route

What if you could take your much-anticipated Outer Banks vacation and magically add a day?

T

raveling to the remote Outer Banks of North Carolina always makes for a fulfilling vacation. While boat access via the Intracoastal Waterway and air travel by charter plane are viable options, most visitors arrive by car, so it’s important to choose which route is best for you. The southern route is undoubtedly the most relaxing way, since it takes advantage of the North Carolina Ferry System. For those coming from the southern beaches of North Carolina’s Crystal Coast, the Cedar Island Ferry carries you through the same waters that Blackbeard once sailed, landing on Ocracoke Island after a tranquil 2 1/4-hour trip. The final leg of this route takes you through the picturesque Cape Hatteras National Seashore after a short, free ferry ride to the tip of Hatteras Island.

The northern route from Virginia has been improved in recent years with the widening of Route 168. Venture across one of the “Seven Engineering Wonders of the World” via the Chesapeake Bay BridgeTunnel. The Bridge-Tunnel project is a four-lane, 20-mile-long vehicular toll crossing the lower Chesapeake Bay connecting Virginia’s Eastern Shore and south Hampton Roads, Virginia. What if you could take your muchanticipated Outer Banks vacation and magically add a day? Would you do it? Of course you would! Here’s how: Leave a day early. Stay in Chesapeake, Va. and recharge! Pick up groceries and other beach supplies, and arrive on the Outer Banks first thing in the morning—with a full day ahead of you! Let Chesapeake’s hospitality, history and accessibility jumpstart your vacation. Go to VisitChesapeake.com for specials and discounts. Wherever you may be coming from, make the most of your driving experience by enjoying the beautiful scenery, finding unique places to stop—and maybe stay—along the way and always being safe during your travels. No matter how long the journey, remember that once you arrive on the relaxing Outer Banks, it will all be worth it.

Bike/Walking-Paths

The Outer Banks is an outdoor delight. Away from its world-famous beaches, there are multi-use paths beneath old growth trees and hiking trails of surprising and exquisite beauty. While the area is brimming with endless outdoor opportunities, this is a partial list to encourage you to get out and see another side of the Outer Banks.

North Carolina Coastal Reserve

983 West Kitty Hawk Road • Kitty Hawk, NC 27949 252-261-8891 While there are three locations on the Outer Banks—Currituck Banks, Kitty Woods and Buxton Woods—all three are administered by one person working from Kitty Hawk. Trails in Kitty Hawk Woods are suitable for mountain bikes. Site brochures provide excellent directions as well as trail information.

Nags Head Woods

(Part of the Nature Conservancy) 701 West Ocean Acres Drive • Kill Devil Hills, NC 27948 252-441-2525 One of the most beautiful places on the Outer Banks, the reserve is heavily wooded with hills, marsh, fresh water ponds and deep ravines. The elevation gains are surprisingly steep and rugged.

Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge

Administrative offices (Jointly administered with Alligator River NWR): 100 Conservation Way • Manteo, NC 27954 Local photographer Mark Buckler’s favorite place and deservedly so. With spectacles of a verdant salt marsh and sound, the island is constantly in a state of change. Visitor’s Center is approximately two miles south of Bonner Bridge.

Multi-use Paths There are interconnected multi-use paths in Dare County from the north end of Duck at Sanderling to the intersection of Old Oregon Inlet Road and NC12 in South Nags Head. One of the prettiest sections is the path that parallels the Woods Road in Kitty Hawk. There is also a multi-use path on the north end of Roanoke Island and in the Tri-Villages of Rodanthe, Salvo and Waves. In Corolla, the Currituck County plans to have a multi-use path completed from the Whalehead Club to the county’s southern beach access. Maps are available from the Outer Banks Chamber of Commerce.

Surprising Places Worth A Look

Jockey’s Ridge State Park has a trail that loops around the north end of the dune to the sound. Sandy Run Park on the Woods Road in Kitty Hawk features a 1-mile loop trail around wetlands and marsh—an outstanding introduction for young legs to the outdoors. Nags Head Town Park has a picnic area, restrooms and trail that connect to the south end of Nags Head Woods.

First In Flight —For Sure—

Despite Fabricated Claims To Fame, The Wright Brothers’ Reputation As Pioneers Of American Aviation Strongly Soars Story and Photos By Anne Leonard “Have you ever been on an airplane?”

About four years ago, a single, unburied photo kindled a new fire.

The park ranger at Wright Brothers National Memorial stared back at a room of raised hands, myself included. The ranger then held up a monumental photo of the Wright brothers’ first flight. “Now look closely,” he said. “There’s a death in this photo.” The group strained their eyes looking for the ranger’s claim. “The death of impossible,” he said. Since December 17, 1903, the first flight led to the next impossible leap toward what we now know as modern aviation. Once the Wright brothers contacted the U.S. Weather Bureau in search of a suitably windy environment, they landed on Kitty Hawk, N.C., where winds averaged 13 miles per hour. In the windy settlement of Kitty Hawk, on December 17, 1903, Orville Wright took what many consider to be the first controlled, powered flight. The first flight lasted for 12 seconds covering 120 feet; then, after taking turns with older brother Wilbur, the fourth flight covered 852 feet and remained airborne for 59 seconds before crashing into the sand, never to be flown again.   Dayton, Ohio is where Orville was born (Wilbur was born in Millville, Ind.) and the hometown where the brothers studied and developed their flyers. The two bicycle mechanics owned the Wright Cycle Company together, which funded their aviation experiments. They soon realized the same balancing act required to ride a bike was the same concept they’d use to fly. “Ohio’s contribution to aviation and the aerospace industry is well established. This is where their genius produced a practical airplane,” Dawne Dewey, Head of Special Collections and Archives at Wright State University Libraries, tells us. “Having

said that, North Carolina provided the brothers with the wind and sand they needed to test their invention.” Years ago, North Carolina and Ohio ended on a truce concerning the Wright Brothers and the dispute over who could claim their successes. To settle the scuffle, North Carolina’s license plates read “First in Flight,” while Ohio’s read “Birthplace of Aviation” honoring Orville’s birth state. In 2012, the two states joined hands under unexpected circumstances. About four years ago, a single, unburied photo kindled a new fire. In a museum attic, historian John Brown discovered a peculiar photograph of Gustave Whitehead. The blurred photo allegedly showed that on August 14, 1901, Gustave Whitehead flew the “Condor” in Bridgeport, Connecticut, two years before the Wright brothers. It was in the attic that Brown also found newspaper clippings; some even stated that Whitehead might have flown as early as 1897. Soon after the photo surfaced and gained the attention of national media, this pre-Wright flight was then published in the 100th anniversary issue of Jane’s All the World’s Aircraft in 2013. After the story was published in the distinguished Jane’s, former Bridgeport, Conn. mayor Bill Finch commented “Our license plate should say ‘firster in flight.’” In 2013, two dates honoring Whitehead were put in place by Connecticut senator Kevin Kelly, one being “Gustave Whitehead Day.” Later that year, lawmakers passed House Bill No. 6671 to honor August 14 as “Powered Flight Day.” The passing of this bill replaced the Wright Brothers with Whitehead as first to operate a powered flight. However, in the wake of this movement crowning Gustave Continued on Page 38

Whitehead as the rightful heir, a fair share of critics challenged the authenticity of these newfound claims, arguing that they are yet another clumsy attempt to dethrone the Wright Brothers. In 2015, Ohio issued a resolution rejecting that Whitehead’s “heavier-than-air” machine successfully took flight. The short title to House Concurrent Resolution 8 reads: “To repudiate the claim by the State of Connecticut that Gustave Whitehead successfully flew a powered, heavier than air machine of his own design on August 14, 1901, or on any other date.” According to Darrell Collins, historian of the Wright Brothers National Memorial for nearly 30 years, the dispute of Gustave claiming the first flight is neither accurate nor an original proposition. “The story of the Wright brothers and their invention of the airplane have no rivalry in aviation. This is another tall tale to once again discredit the Wright brothers and their achievements,” Collins tells us. “This has been happening since their first flights at Kitty Hawk in 1903. The claims of Whitehead have been coming up since 1937, when the book written by Stella Randolph, Lost Flights of Gustave Whitehead was published in 1937, and it resurfaces about every 5 to 7 years since.”

“The Wright Brothers not only succeeded, they were truly unique in that they left behind a detailed record of their experiments, through written accounts, as well as in photographs,” Dewey says. “And they did not just document their success on December 17, 1903. Their story spans many years. The evidence put forth by others claiming to be first in flight does not support their claims.” In 1945, Orville Wright wrote “The Mythical Whitehead Flight” for U.S. Air Services magazine and stated that Whitehead had business ties with nine-year benefactor Stanley Yale Beach. Even Beach, himself, did not believe that Whitehead’s devices took flight. Orville wrote that if Beach can’t even support Whitehead, he “would have been the last to deny it.” “Not one thing Gustave Whitehead invented or developed is used today in modern aviation,” Collins says. Today, modern aviation utilizes the same fundamental principles, such as the 1902 ‘roll, pitch and yaw,’ concept, math equations and wind tunnel experiments that were put in place by the Wright brothers 113 years ago. Historians at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum raised another interesting point that since Whitehead’s “first flight” in 1901, none of his flying devices that were constructed after this “successful” flight ever left the ground. With the Smithsonian fully supporting the Wright brothers, historian John Brown and other Gustave supporters brought a very important contract to the surface. In reputing the museum’s statement, they cited a contract that says the museum is not allowed to claim another individual as the pioneer in flight, or the 1903 Flyer will be removed from their museum. The Wright heirs originally drew the contract in 1948 after surviving brother Orville had passed. Initially, the Smithsonian mistakenly named their museum secretary Samuel Pierpont Langley the first to build a flying machine. It was then that Orville Wright had the Flyer sent to London’s Science Museum, where it remained until Orville’s death. The contract was drawn stating that the museum could not dispute “first in flight” or first to build a flying machine or the Flyer would be removed from the Smithsonian. The museum did not deny the contract existing, but they further underlined that they would not allow the contract to prevent them from acknowledging historical fact—and Whitehead’s claim is no such thing. Even the Wright brothers’ grandniece, Amanda Wright Lane, expressed that she would hope that the museum would keep their integrity as the nation’s historians to display the truth, but she had not seen it with the developing Whitehead claim. It didn’t take long for the Whitehead findings to be debunked. Just four months later after the article was published in Jane’s, it was discovered that the

photo was not Whitehead and his “Condor,” but it was “The California,” a John J. Montgomery glider flown in 1905. In 2015, Information Handling Services (IHS) owner and publisher of Jane’s released a public statement that the article released in 2013 shortly after Brown’s discovery was solely based off of editor Paul Jackson’s opinion. The statement reads: “IHS Jane’s recognizes and respects that there are differing views on this historical analysis and IHS makes no argument about the success of the Wright Brothers, who hold their rightful place in history as aviation pioneers and heroes.” Then, according to FlyingMachines.org, it was discovered that the article published in the Bridgeport Herald, which documented Whitehead’s August 14, 1901 flight, was actually reprinted from the June 9, 1901 article previously published in the New York Sun, further unraveling claims of Whitehead advocates. It seems that every year, there is a new piece added to the claim for first. This year, Ohio is hoping to have the 1905 Wright Flyer added to their state seal. On February 16 of this year, a proposal for the Wright flyer to be added to Ohio’s state seal was unanimously cleared by the House State Government Committee, further enforcing their place in pioneering aviation. When asked if this claim for first will ever come to a close, Collins replied, “It took almost 40 years to prove that it [Samuel Pierpont Langley being first to build a sustained, powered flying machine] was all a lie fabricated by the Smithsonian to save the reputation of the most prestigious scientific institution in the world. So no, as long as you have people who are jealous and envious of the Wright brothers’ accomplishments, this will always happen.”

UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP

Just In The “St. Nick” Of Time, The Outer Banks Original Christmas Shop Lives On In Manteo.

In 2005, Edward Greene and Richard Lacerre decided to retire from their original Outer Banks Christmas Shop, which they founded in 1967. After 38 years, it seemed to be the logical thing to do. There were very few offers to take over the shop because of its sheer size. So, after three years, in the spring of 2008, they decided to re-open. Thousands of customers rejoiced because a family tradition of many years was back again. Last year the Christmas Shop noted that in many families, the fourth generation was experiencing the magic. In 2015, Greene and Lacerre looked again at retiring. Lacerre was approaching 70 and Greene was approaching 90. Once again, they announced their forthcoming retirement. This time they really were serious. Great sales of merchandise were held and eventually “tag sales” and an auction were held for most of the antiques, fixtures, and props. In early December, the “miracle” happened. The Chatnik family walked through the doors, just in the “St. Nick of Time” and immediately fell in love with the ambiance and tradition of the store. With over 25 years themselves in the Christmas business beginning in Lake George, New York in 1991, Gary & Vicki Chatnik quickly began considering purchasing the business. Within only a few short months the magic of the Christmas Shop was back, as the couple formally committed to preserving the hospitality & reputation Mr. Greene established nearly five decades ago. Hooray… it’s now official! This Roanoke Island original will have a third incarnation. The Chatniks have quickly proven themselves to carry on the tradition of the iconic Christmas Shop and they are already enthusiastic and workaholics just like Greene and Lacerre. On any given day, you might even see Edward or Richard in the Shop. Expect to see some changes, as the Shop does every year. There will be twice as much Christmas displayed, the Jewelry Shop has a fresh face, Home Decor has a greater variety of gifts, there is a large and new Pro & Collegiate Sports ornament and gift area, and, of course, the General Store has the same great candy and Outer Banks fudge.

And last, but not least, you will find the same wonderful, warm and friendly staff to greet you. All is well & the magic continues!

businessmen bought large tracts of land and established private hunt clubs such as the Monkey Island Club, Swan Island Club and the Currituck Club. The hunt clubs established a new industry in Currituck and kept the locals employed. The most famous of these clubs, the fully restored Whalehead Club, currently serves as a prominent historical attraction at Currituck Heritage Park. The Whalehead Club was built in 1922 by Pennsylvania industrialist Edward Collins Knight, Jr. for his wife, Marie Louise LeBel, a French Canadian who liked to hunt. When none of the all-male hunt clubs would allow Mrs. Knight to join, Mr. Knight bought 4.5 miles of land and began building his wife a large hunt club mansion on the sound. The club featured one of only a few basements on the Outer Banks, which was constructed by building the basement on level ground, then dredging a moat around the structure and pushing the fill around the basement. The resulting island became known as “Corolla Island” and housed an additional Continued On Page 58

The home has cork floors, Tiffany-designed wall sconces, crystal and china, 18-inch walls with steel-reinforced beams, hot and cold running fresh and salt water, a copper roof, five stately brick chimneys and so much more. Building materials were barged from Elizabeth City and cost $385,000. It took three years to build Corolla Island. The Knights used the club to entertain their northern friends and many distinctive guests, including Theodore Roosevelt. Having no descendants, the club’s ownership was transferred to Ray T. Adams in 1940. The renamed Whalehead Club went through a series of uses, including a rocket fuel testing site and a boys’ school. In the 1970s, it was purchased by a Virginia businessman who developed much of the land but let the club fall into disrepair. In 1993, Currituck County purchased the Club and the surrounding 39 acres and formed 58 | outerbanks.com | 2016/2017

with the horses’ medical care to ensure the herd is protected for many years to come. The northern beaches of the Currituck Outer Banks offer a unique experience to SUV owners. The communities of Swan Beach, North Swan Beach and Carova Beach feature fabulous vacation homes that provide seclusion and access to one of the most pristine beaches on the East Coast. Miles of sand are framed by dunes spotted with sea oats and indigenous wildlife. The only access to this area is by driving on the beach. Two wildlife refuges and an estuarine sanctuary provide protection for the native seabirds, turtles and abundant sound-side wildlife. Visitors can drive on the beach and catch a glimpse of pelicans and gulls diving for the catch of the day or perhaps see a majestic Spanish mustang overlooking the windswept dunes. Park your fourwheel-drive on the beach, unload the kids, coolers and fishing gear, and spend the day. The only requirement is that you don’t park within one mile of the ramp access to the beach and do not block the travel lanes. Enjoy the sun, surf, sand and peacefulness offered on the northern beaches. Beach-goers can also enjoy the pristine beaches of Corolla by staying at any of the numerous accommodations. One of the newer subdivisions to the Currituck Outer Banks is Pine Island features many private homes that can house up to 30 visitors at a time.

Perhaps you and your family can’t get enough of the secluded beaches and astonishing wildlife and would like to spend more than a day here. The communities of Swan Beach, North Swan Beach and Carova Beach feature spectacular vacation homes that provide seclusion and access to one of the most pristine beaches on the East Coast. Part of what makes your Corolla vacation special is that most of the property is family-owned, giving it a genuine community feel and leaving out the gargantuan mega hotels that litter other beaches. The east side of NC 12 features the communities of Spindrift, Ocean Sands, Crown Point and Buck Island. Spindrift offers acre home sites, a rarity in ocean-side developments. Ocean Sands and Crown Point offer some larger homes but feature the smaller, more traditional beach cottages. Buck Island is reminiscent of a historic coastal community. The sidewalks, street lamps and brightly painted homes offer a different opportunity for the Corolla visitor. Whalehead Beach features a mixture of large homes with private pools and smaller beach cottages. The Caribbean-inspired homes of Monteray Shores feature “stucco” exteriors, curved archways and pastel colors along with more traditional

sort has won numerous awards for “Resort Community of the Year” and continues to improve its accommodations to evolve with the changes in the demands of its guests. Corolla Village is also an ocean-to-sound community and is the oldest of the vacation areas on the Currituck Banks. Sand roads lead to private homes with heavily treed home sites. Adjacent to Corolla Village is Ocean Hill and the Villages at Ocean Hill, which offer beautiful traditional homes interspersed with estate-like vacation houses. Ocean Hill marks the end of the paved road, but one can continue north into the four-wheeldrive areas for additional outstanding accommodations. Spotted throughout the Currituck Banks are terrific shopping areas and an eclectic mix of restaurants. The oceanfront beaches and Currituck Sound offer great fishing and hunting venues, as well as water sport activities like kayaking, surfing and sailing. So if you’re looking for a great place to stay that offers fantastic accommodations, shopping, dining, activities and historical attractions, the Currituck Outer Banks should be your destination of choice. The Currituck Outer Banks is much more than a beach and definitely more than you imagined!

ild horses roam the beaches north of Corolla. The entire herd is watched over, managed and cared for by the 501(c)(3), not for profit Corolla Wild Horse Fund. These Colonial Spanish Mustangs, the North Carolina state horse, roam the organization’s 7,544 acres. It is here that between two and five foals are born annually, and during foaling season (March–August), all newborns are documented and monitored as closely as possible by the CWHF Herd Manager and Executive Director. On June 7, 2015, a tiny foal named Guillermo, which is Spanish for “William,” was born. He was born considerably smaller than the other four foals born previously in May. The CWHF staff watched him closely and relayed photos and videos to their veterinarian in Suffolk, Va. The veterinarian recommended giving the foal and mare a total of five days to bond and ensure that the foal was nursing well and thriving. If it still seemed that his mother was impatient with William, by pushing him away or walking away, the plan was to capture them both and confine them together at our rescue barn.

OVER 60 EXCITING SHOPS On day five, the foal was found to be cold (on a day with a heat index of 107), and his mother was completely ignoring him. The CWHF Executive Director recognized that there was no time to lose and that his mother would have to stay behind if we were to have a chance to save his life. With the help of some nice folks staying in a rental home nearby, William was placed on the back seat of the CWHF Tahoe. His mother showed only mild curiosity that her foal was being taken. The foal was transported to Dominion Equine Clinic in Suffolk, Va., where the staff worked feverishly for three hours to stabilize him. His heart rate was low, his blood pressure was low, and his breathing was shallow. Unable to bring him around, a referral was made to the North Carolina State University School of Veterinary Medicine ICU in Raleigh, N.C.

The three-hour drive there seemed like 10. Under the care of 10 veterinarians, William was determined to be premature with underdeveloped lungs—a heart not strong enough to keep his blood pressure up. Even more serious, there was a hole in his bladder that was leaking urine into his abdominal cavity. He needed immediate surgery to close it, but the risk was high due to his critical condition. It was minute-by-minute, then hour-byhour, then day-by-day for the veterinarians The skilled medical care that William received cost over $17,000, but it was all Continued On Page 70

made possible by hundreds of kind and generous donors from all over the country. Over 1.5 million people followed William’s journey on the Corolla Wild Horse Fund Facebook page. He will be able to celebrate his first birthday in June of 2016 due to the intervention of the CWHF, the experts at NCSU, and just as importantly, all the wonderful people who fell in love with William and contributed to providing him with the best care available. William currently lives at the Corolla Wild Horse Fund’s Betsy Dowdy Equine Center with several other rescued horses. Wild horses are only removed from their habitat for life-threatening injuries, illnesses or extreme habituation to people (loss of fear of people makes wild horses dangerous as they are not tame, but will approach humans). In all three cases, they cannot be returned and become the physical and financial responsibility of the CWHF. If their health can be fully restored, all horses over the age of three are gentled, saddle trained and enter the fund’s nationwide adoption program. All horses under the age of three are gentled, stand for the farrier and have excellent ground manners.

Take the trip of a lifetime with the Corolla Wild Horse Fund to see the wild horses, and all the proceeds will go back to benefit them. Children’s painting activities are held at their Duck and Corolla locations between Memorial Day and Labor Day, and you can meet a gentled Colonial Spanish Mustang at the Wild Horse Museum in Corolla every Friday from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. For more information on the Corolla Wild Horse Fund and the wild horses, visit their Facebook page and website, www.CorollaWildHorses.org, or call 252-453-8002.

Every detail is captured including the crystal clear droplets falling to the waters below. “The world of nature is not stagnant,” Mark says. “There are a lot of beautiful things outdoors and most are in motion.

There are very few galleries that carry his work on the Outer Banks, or anywhere else for that matter. Although he enjoys the creativity of photography and has a book in print, Coastal Wild, Mark has found his niche and enjoyment in teaching workshops. “I’d rather be in nature teaching people how to take better photographs. I enjoy meeting new people and going to beautiful places. It’s better I share this experience with people than schlepping up and down the Outer Banks trying to get people to accept images into galleries,” he says.

“The short story is I got suckered into teaching a wildlife biology course in the very high school I attended. I never thought teaching would be something I would want to do, but quite frankly, I fell in love with it instantly and ended up coaching and teaching for 14 years,” he says. Fieldwork continued to be a part of his work, but he eventually understood what he really wanted to do. “It was about 15 to 20 years ago that I realized it wasn’t the research, it was photography. As interesting as wildlife research was, my connection to nature was through the creative aspects of photography,” he says. Largely self-taught, Buckler has coupled his science background with an artist’s eye to capture the beauty of the world around him. Once he understood photography would be his profession, the move to the Outer Banks was inevitable. “One reason I moved here was [for] the

The ability to capture the exact moment when snow geese take wing or when a doe and fawn stop for a drink of water comes from his background. Years of wildlife field study has given Mark a unique understanding of animal behaviors. He explains, “My background in science, nature and biology, especially wildlife biology, allows me to better position myself to increase photographic opportunities and see things before they happen.” Teaching workshops, Mark has come to understand that each individual has a different viewpoint of what photographs mean to them.

There’s no one way, and there’s no one shot that’s going to best exemplify the scene they’re looking at because it’s very dependent on the person taking the picture,” he explains. His workshops, which he runs year-round, are different than a typical photography class. Because of time spent as a professional wildlife biologist, the workshops are focused on the environment so participants can capture images of choice. “We’re not just going out to take some pictures, you’re getting an eco-adventure at the same time,” he notes. Most of Mark’s workshops are on the Outer Banks or in the immediate vicinity, although this year’s schedule will take him on photo adventures in Hawaii, the American Southwest and the entire East Coast as well. However, there is one place that he believes holds unique beauty. “Overall Pea Island [in Rodanthe, N.C.] is a very special place to me,” he says. “There’s a wonderful transition throughout the year.” To view Mark Buckler’s photography or to sign up for his Outer Banks photography class, please visit Facebook.com/ BucklerPhoto or BucklerPhoto.com.

WATER 900 Sq. Miles of Water and 80 Miles of Coastline

owhere on earth is the reflection in the water of the sun rising and setting more abundant and breathtaking. With 900 square miles of water and 80 miles of coastline, the Outer Banks is ripe with opportunities for on-the-water activities. Our ocean, sounds and canals entice millions of vacationers each year who make the trek to our barrier islands. This area provides countless ways to set sail, cruise, paddle and soar—experience the water from the Currituck Sound to the Atlantic Ocean and all the inlets, bays and marshes in between. Rent a speedboat or wave runner and set your own course across turquoise waters. Many local places also offer wave runner tours where you can ride the waves and see the sights while following a local guide. If you want to learn to sail, the Outer Banks is the ideal place. For those wanting to catch a romantic sunset, embark on one of the cruises in the area and enjoy cocktails and snacks as the sun melts into the mainland. Or bring the family on a dolphin-watching cruise, and get up close and personal with the Outer Banks’ other summer visitors. For the more adventurous, the Outer Banks presents plenty of opportunities. For those days when the wind won’t stop, use its power to try kiteboarding, parasailing or windsurfing. All three activities are available, whether you want to take lessons or just show off your skills. Stand-up paddleboarding, becoming more and more popular by the day, is another sport that’s here to stay on the Outer Banks. This sport can allow you to navigate through still water or surf the waves. The Outer Banks are also known as a paradise for paddlers. Launch a kayak and explore our many nature preserves. Spot wildlife and birds, and get closer to nature than ever before. There are also many kayak excursions that offer knowledgeable guides to lead the way. From high seas adventures to quiet coastal excursions, the Outer Banks offers a wide variety of on-the-water fun. So escape the sand for a few hours, and take some time to explore this coastal paradise.

Dolphin Tours Up Close and Personal

The sighting of dolphins along the Outer Banks delights and amuses many summer visitors. Many people view these chance encounters as a treasured highlight to a relaxing vacation and will happily spend hours observing the dolphins’ antics. What few people realize is that they are likely viewing the same group of dolphins, day after day and summer after summer. Some bottlenose dolphins will spend their summers in the waters of the Outer Banks and then migrate south for the winter only to return again in the early summer the next 82 | outerbanks.com | 2016/2017

dolphins in the Outer Banks. The most famous of these is Onion, perhaps the easiest dolphin to identify on the entire East Coast. Onion and his family spend their summers in the Nags Head area and their winters off of Beaufort, N.C. Dolphins are social animals and spend their entire lives in the company of other dolphins. The pods of three or four (and up to 40) dolphins will range in age from newborns to 50 years old, and physically mature adults range in size from just under six feet to nearly 12 feet and weigh from 330 lbs. to 1430 lbs. Living together in the protective sound waters improves their chances of finding food, increases the likelihood of avoiding predators, such as sharks, makes it easier to encounter a suitable mate and increases the learning potential of youngsters.

Who could remain untouched by the amazing agility of a bottlenose dolphin as it leaps into the air beside a boat or as it exhales a breath of air causing a cloud of spray to shoot 10 feet into the air before disappearing under the surface again, or a young calf breathing out of the water in stride with its mother, never missing a beat? These are the kinds of experiences that stay with people for the rest of their lives.

salt and brackish marshes, maritime forests, swamps and the ocean. Each of these ecosystems offers different wildlife opportu-

tours are conducted on the sheltered side of the Outer Banks where the waters remain calm and are typically shallow. The marshes of the northern Outer Banks are fresh water because of the distance from the tidal influences of the Oregon inlet 30-plus plus miles away. The Pine Island Audubon Sanctuary and marshes further north extend across the state line of Virginia like a maze designed for kayakers. These marsh islands and creeks are

Since the protection of the Nature Conservancy, both bald eagle and osprey, two formerly endangered species, have begun nesting on this preserve. The Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge is a swamp tour. Don’t let the word swamp fool you; this is one of the most beautiful locations to kayak anywhere. The waters here are the coloration of dark tea from the tannic acids of the bald cypress, loblolly pine and Atlantic white cedar. Winding creeks lead to mirror image lakes where alligators can often be seen sunning on floating grass fields (slough grass) or a protruding cypress stump.

confluence of two major ocean currents, the southbound Labrador Current and, of course, the northbound Gulfstream. Huge amounts of baitfish and other sea life are swept along by these two “rivers within the ocean,” and as these two powerful forces collide, the upwelling and ocean eddies created by these currents serve up a buffet that game fish cannot resist. Many anglers know this, and many more are learning that the Outer Banks really lives up to its reputation as “Game Fish Junction.” For the visiting angler, this means that there are countless opportunities for one to pursue their fish of choice. Whether you charter a boat or fish from a quiet spot along the sound by yourself, you will almost always be rewarded with a good day of fishing and probably a good dinner as well. The charter boat fleets along the Outer Banks are among the best in the world. The captains and crews are professional and courteous and will go out of their way to see that your fishing experience will be pleasant and productive. The boats going offshore (30 to 40 miles) will put you onto yellowfin and bluefin tuna, marlin, sailfish, dolphin and wahoo. Many times the catch can be incredible with over 500 lbs. of fresh fish going home to your freezer. (Your friends and neighbors will love you!) The inshore boats will also put you into some really hot action at a great price with catches of striper, red drum, huge cobia, speckled trout, bluefish and flounder. If you are fishing from your own boat or from the surf, the tackle shops on the Outer Banks are all well-stocked and well-staffed by experienced fisherman who can show you what the fish are biting on and rig you up with just what you need. No matter what kind of angler you are, from novice to veteran, you’ll find everyone involved in the industry willing to help you catch fish at a price you can afford.

n the past, millions of viewers watched as one Gloucester caption dominated an entire fleet on his 38’ Novi boat, Hard Merchandise, despite a difficult fishing season. Filmed entirely in the Outer Banks, National Geographic Channel’s hit series Wicked Tuna became top-rated leading to its spinoff, Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks (formerly known as Wicked Tuna: North vs. South), which premiered as the network’s highest-rated new series in 2014 and will begin filming its third season in 2016. Filmed on the unpredictable, high seas of the Outer Banks, the second season of Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks followed four of the New England captains as they took their boats south during the January to March bluefin season. The men were to beat their North Carolina counterparts to the catch as they attempted to reach the evasive bluefin in the southern Atlantic water; however, new and returning Southern rivals—which included the all-female crew aboard fishing vessel Reel Action—made the race challenging for the competitors and nail-biting for the viewers. In Season 3, watch these vessels return for yet another exciting fishing season along the coast of the Outer Banks.

There’s a track for all levels ranging from more than 7,000 treacherous yards of championship links-style-play to nine holes of Chip ‘n Putt family fun. For the more serious and avid weekenders, a deep respect for nature’s elements is highly recommended. Fairways winding through dense forests, rolling dunes and marshland combining with gusting coastal winds often leave “mainlanders” scratching their heads. These natural hazards bump up the challenge of playing golf on the Outer Banks to a new level—often compared to that of Scotland, where it all began.

anks On the Outer B From well-known brands to locally made goods ... Outer Banks has it all

he Outer Banks has been a popular destination for beach goers for decades. Far from the mega mall complexes that are characteristic of big cities, the local merchants of the Outer Banks have made their living on this 80-mile-long strip of beautiful sand beaches. The quaint character and charm of the one-of-a-kind mom and pop shops that are so characteristic of the Outer Banks will keep you busy and entertained for days. Although sitting on the beach all day is what most people come to the Outer Banks for, be sure to keep a few days open to treat yourself to some great shopping! Chances are you will find everything you were hoping for and more, from great gifts to help remind you of your amazing time here to the unbelievable deals. From home décor to apparel to souvenirs, area shops are chock-full of unique items that echo the spirit of the Outer Banks. Find fashionable clothes and accessories at area boutiques all throughout the Outer Banks. No matter if you’re vacationing in Manteo, Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills or Kitty Hawk, you will surely find a locally owned boutique filled with trendy apparel and jewelry that will spice up your closet back home. Not only do the boutiques in the Outer Banks provide a variety of styles and brands to choose from, some are home to beautiful arts and crafts pieces made by artisans living in the area. Browse through galleries that feature original paintings, sculptures, blown glass, pottery and much more by local artists. You will also find wooden items, wall art and chimes that are carefully selected and created with the Outer Banks vacationer and homeowner in mind. Choose from a variety of gift baskets for a birthday present, or fall in love with a locally crafted treasure or antique engraving for yourself. No matter what you walk out the door with, you will be a proud owner of a new creative piece of artwork that can’t be found anywhere else. If you are looking for a unique gift for a loved one back home, handmade glass and jewelry shops abound, with many of these precious stones having rolled in with the tide—literally. Local artists have turned Mother Nature’s wash-ups into beautiful and colorful jewelry. Paintings, stunning beach photography and even handmade clothing are Continued on Page 94

an easy find in one of the many eclectic shops. Arts and crafts are not the only locally made item you will find while shopping in the Outer Banks. While shopping for a new wardrobe or décor for your living room or kitchen back home, stop by one of the shops along the way home for edible treats that are both fresh and homemade—from hand-dipped chocolates and ice cream to healthy snacks, pastries and desserts that will remind you of Grandma’s to-die-for cooking. You will even find homemade treats for your furry little friends, too! For that specialty cheese and wine craving or the perfect delectable treat, step into the local markets to find those must-have food items. Aside from purchasing some tempting edibles, you’ll be able to find that perfect souvenir you’ve been looking for—or the original creation you didn’t know you needed until it was love at first sight. The shops of the Outer Banks include everything from surfboards to sand dollars. You will find beach shirts, sweatshirts and shoes in Avon, surf-inspired clothing and hundreds of bathing suits for men, women and children in Hatteras and plenty of unique gifts and OBX brand items in Corolla. But those are not the only places you will find some great souvenirs for yourself. Whether you are in Duck, Frisco, Nags Head or Ocracoke, you will surely find a variety of items that will take you back to that Outer Banks vacation mindset. Another great way to shop in the Outer Banks is at the outlet centers. Here you will find all sorts of both locally owned and well-known shops that are packed full with clothing, jewelry, accessories, shoes, electronics and home décor. There are so many shops to choose from, you may have a hard time stopping by all the ones you love before closing time! Looking for something more practical, or did you leave something at home because it couldn’t fit in the car? From beach shops to surf shops, visitors have easy access to those last minute items on your list to complete a perfect vacation. Even if you remembered everything, why not add to it with a new bathing suit or cover-up, flip flops or hat, just to make your beach vacation a little bit brighter. Not only will you find wearable items in Outer Banks’ surf and beach shops, but discover plenty of water sports as well. Offering the best quality surfboards, skimboards, boogie boards and wakeboards for the adrenaline junkie in your family, boredom is never an option. You can even rent a surfboard, stand-up paddleboard or kayak for the day and have an adventurous day on the water. If you haven’t had much experience with one of these water sports, many surf and rental shops offer lessons to all ages and skill levels in order to make the most out of your experience. Learn how to ride a wave in all the way to shore, how to balance and cruise on a stand-up paddleboard, or take a guided tour through secret, scenic marshes. If you’d rather stay on the beach and soak up the sun, fear not—swimsuits, sunscreen, umbrellas, kites, beach toys and more are plentiful here. One of the most popular items in the Outer Banks is the specialty-handcrafted hammocks. These make a great gift for Dad or anyone in the family looking for the perfect way to relax. Find that special hideaway spot, set up your new hammock, and rock with the breeze—drink in hand and worries farther away than the tip of Ocracoke Island. The Outer Banks is known for its amazing shopping destinations, so chances are, after a few days of shopping, you will be stocked up on special items and souvenirs that may not all fit in the car when packing up on your last day. Leave the transporting of gifts to professionals. The OBX Shipping Center is your onestop shop to convenience, where shipping, computer rentals, greeting cards, private mailboxes, seafood, packaging services and much more are available for both locals and visitors. Providing solutions since 1984, the OBX Shipping Center is open 8 a.m.–5 p.m. and is committed to safely and securely shipping your shopping items.

Block the Burn: If you’re going the distance and spending the day at the beach, you’ll need to protect yourself from the damaging rays of the sun. We love the new technology in fabrics with SPFs (Sun Protection Factors) of 50+. Some swimwear companies are only making their suits in these fabrics, so you know you’ll be sun safe. Other companies offer sun protective, coordinating rash guards, zip jackets, tunics and leggings to pop on over swimwear. With today’s technology, there’s no reason to go home from the beach with sunburn! This summer, it’s time to be a good sport. No sitting on the sidelines! Put your new suit on, and get out there and go the distance! *JiIl Bennett is the owner of Birthday Suits, a chain of specialty swimwear boutiques on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

very four years I look forward to the summer Olympics with great expectations for the USA athletes, and this year will not disappoint! Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, famous for its Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, its flamboyant costumes and pulsating rhythms should put an entirely new spin on traditional sport. And that new spin is exactly what the 2016 swimwear designers have captured! They’ve combined the practicality of sports clothing with the comfort and style of leisure clothing to produce an entirely new category of swimwear. Look for these “athleisure” trends for this summer:

Women’s Swimwear Sizes 4-24 Bra Sized Swimwear B, C, D, DD, E, F, G, H Cups! Men’s Swim Trunks and Boardshorts Girl’s and Boy’s Simwear

We Got Your Back: It’s a lot easier to surf,

swim, kayak or paddleboard when you’re confident that your suit isn’t going to slip off your shoulders. Competition swimwear always features some kind of a “T-Back” or “Swimmer’s Back.” But this season, back treatment is a dominant trend in all swimwear. You’ll love the new ladder back, strappy back and crisscross back treatment on swim tops and one-piece suits. And be assured, even though these tops are inspired by workout wear, you won’t look like you’re wearing your sports bra!

Cream of the Crop Tops: If you’re looking

for something completely different from your triangle bikini top, try one of the new crop tops. Inspired by yoga, they’re a little longer, a little higher at the neck, and most will give great bust support during athletic activities. And you can even transition them into sportswear by wearing them under a cute, deep V-neck tee or kimono with a pair of yoga pants.

TER BANKS HISTORY CEN

H

By Sarah Downing

ave you ever seen the Outer Banks from the sky? If you’ve not been adventuresome enough to take an air tour, perhaps you have viewed aerial photos of this ribbon of sand. What stands out on the northern beaches—the seaside towns of Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head—is the ability to easily pick out the two north-south thoroughfares that carry natives, vacationers, service workers and commercial trucks delivering food to restaurants, linens to hotels, bric-a-brac to trinket shops and bait to tackle stores. To the east is the older, slimmer and slower Beach Road, and to the west is the newer, wider and faster bypass. These common designations simplify a complicated history of the highways. Names and numbers have changed over the years, while popular culture has endeared these streets in our hearts and collective vacation memories. The history of Beach Road is closely tied to the construction of two bridges— one built in 1927 connecting Roanoke Island and Nags Head, and the other linking Point Harbor at the southern tip of Currituck County to Kitty Hawk. The Roanoke Sound Bridge was the brainchild of Dare County legislator R. Bruce Etheridge, who had big plans for Roanoke Island, even though he faced opposition from his local constituents. To the north, the Wright Memorial Bridge was started by the Kitty Hawk Company. Formed in 1929, its goals were to build a toll bridge over the Currituck Sound, to collect fees and to develop land in the Kitty Hawk beach area—for selling lots, building roads and providing necessary infrastructure. The Kitty Hawk Company ran into financial difficulties while the bridge was still under construction. It was liquidated at a foreclosure sale, but a charter was granted to the Wright Memorial Bridge Company to finish the job. The Wright Memorial Bridge opened for traffic on September 27, 1930, and less than two years, later a hard-surfaced road was built to connect the two bridges. North Carolina, which touted itself as “the Good Roads State,” had an ambitious plan for all of her county seats to be connected by hard-surfaced

The Untold History Of The “158 Bypass”

WHALEBONE JUNCTION:Old time photos paint a great picture of how the Outer Banks road system has evolved over the years. roads. Under this same “good roads” initiative, the new Beach Road became part of a much larger Virginia Dare Trail that brought cars travelling east and west through the Albemarle Region of North Carolina and north and south along the Dare beaches through Manteo. On early maps, the new Beach Road was shown as N.C. 345 and N.C. 34 before upgrading to U.S. 158 status. The thoroughfare was only two years old when it was washed out in Kitty Hawk by a 1933 hurricane. As more and more restaurants, juke joints and seaside hotels were built along Beach Road during the summer, this chief artery was getting clogged with summer traffic making for slow travelling from Kitty Hawk to Manteo or Hatteras Island. In 1956, the State Highway Department announced it had $700,000 set aside for constructing an alternate U.S. 158 to the west of the original, but if the necessary rights of way were not obtained in a timely fashion, the money would revert to other needed highway improvements in the Tar Heel State. “The new road would carry U.S. 158 from Wright Memorial Bridge through Jockey Ridge through to Whalebone, and would lie about 1,000 feet west or Continued on Page 100

The modern-day Bypass carries natives, vacationers and service workers totaling an average of 23,000 vehicles each day, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation. This number is expected to increase to 57,000 vehicles by the year 2035.

inland from the present road,” reported the local newspaper The Coastland Times. W.H. Rogers, an engineer with the State Highway Department, explained that the new site would “provide a location less affected by ocean storms and a road which would be able to handle beach season traffic with less congestion.” Bids for the job were opened on June 25, 1957, and by the close of the summer season, Raleigh’s F.D. Cline Paving Company received an $800,000 contract to grade and pave the 15-mile stretch from Kitty Hawk to Whalebone Junction; the job of removing buildings was awarded to Crouch Brothers out of Mooresville, North Carolina. The State Highway Commission worked with the local jurisdictions negotiating rights of way through the three beachside towns. Creating a new highway along the Outer Banks would not only ease traffic on the overburdened Beach Road, but it would provide new spaces for commercial development along its east and west sides. Enterprising citizens invested road-front property. After its construction, new location names became part of the everyday Outer Banks lexicon. People vacationed or lived oceanfront, between the highways or westside. On March 7, 1962, the Ash Wednesday Storm left its watery calling card along the Outer Banks and the Atlantic seaboard, when this

“perfect storm” of high spring tides combined with a nasty coastal low-pressure system. Because the U.S. 158 Bypass was built on a raised roadbed, it was front and center during the tempest when it was proved that it was higher than its surroundings and was an impediment to the free flow of storm tides that made occasional visits to the windswept banks. The U.S. 158 Bypass acted as a virtual dike and kept ocean water from making its way toward the sound. Especially hard-hit was the Nags Head Historic Cottage District. Outer Banks native and fisherman Jethro Midgett, Sr., had been an outspoken adversary to the raised bypass. “It blocks the ocean going to the sound,” he told reporter Lawrence Maddry of The Coastland Times in 1962. “I told them about it, told them what it would do, but they built it anyway.” As a step toward a solution, a culvert was installed under the highway to allow the flow of flood tide. Later that year, problems arose with slow-driving sightseers along the new ribbon of concrete. Under the headline “Minimum Speed for 158 Urged,” an August 1962 front-page article in The Coastland Times reported on the town of Nags Head’s dismay with drivers clogging up what was meant to be “a fast through route to Hatteras, Roanoke Island and other points, but that dawdling motorists were causing frequent traffic delays as well as an accident hazard.” Officials wanted a 45 mph minimum to keep travelers moving. But in neighboring Kill Devil Hills, the board of commissioners did not agree. They were more amiable to a 40 mph minimum because of busy intersections and the congested Avalon Beach section, which flanked the U.S. 158 Bypass near Milepost 6. By the early 1980s, school children were enlisted to come up with a new name for the bypass in order to give this thoroughfare a more appealing moniker. Over two hundred suggestions were made in the “Name the US 158 Bypass Contest,” but the winning entry came from Heather Tolson of Kitty Hawk Elementary School. The sixth grader proposed the name “Croatan Highway” after a location on Hatteras Island that made its way into history when Sir Walter Raleigh’s 1587 colonists carved it on a tree as a message. In order to keep up with the times and the flow of traffic, portions of the bypass were four-laned, or rather five-laned, in the ’80s in order to ease congestion. The infamous French-Fry Alley in Kill Devil Hills was one of the areas where two additional traffic lanes were added—north and LOCALLY OWNED south bound—but there was also a middle lane, a sort of free-for-all space used in preparation to make a left-hand turn. By moving over into the dual-direction lane to make a turn and wait for a break in oncoming traffic, drivers avoided stopping in a lane of moving vehicles. Driving on the bypass during this era was a challenge indeed. Although the addition of five lanes more or less modernized the road, it left the narrower stretches in a time warp. When the asphalt resumed to two lanes, it made for a maddening scene southbound as fast drivers went all out to make sure they were not stuck behind a slowpoke headed to Roanoke Island. Manteo High School students and nine-to-fivers jockeyed for positon with unrelenting determination. Robert H. Ross of Kitty Hawk expressed his concern in a letter to The Coastland Times editor. He wrote, “As it exists, now, two lanes of traffic may be travelling side by side at 55 miles per hour only to suddenly realize that they must quickly funnel themselves into one lane.” Ross contended that the entire road should have been expanded. He was right, and when additional funds became available, the bypass was widened. Today, our 158 Bypass, or The Croatan Highway, carries locals and vacationers to their various destinations offering shoppers, gastronomes and the adventurous a host of shops, restaurants and recreational pursuits—quite a change from the two-lane alternate that was created 60 years ago. Sarah Downing has written extensively about the history and culture of the Outer Banks. After making the area her home for 30 years, she now writes in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains outside of Asheville, North Carolina.

acationers arrive to the Outer Banks by the carloads anticipating relaxed days at the beach. The elevated traffic patterns begin mid-April, heighten throughout the summer months and return to a normal pace in November. The blur of colorful license plates tell an interesting story of those who consider the Outer Banks to be their second home. While award-winning beaches are the primary draw, historic sites, outdoor recreation and seasonal festivals guarantee exciting new adventures to enrich

each vacation. The landscape of the Outer Banks has evolved to meet the demands of its popular resort status; yet its quaint beach towns and Southern hospitality continue to extend a warm welcome to visitors. The perfect beach vacation experience holds no singular definition. It’s as unique as the visitors who arrive. Some prefer to rent small cottages and spend family time highlighted by casual barbecues and lazy days on the shoreline. Others arrive in vehicles loaded with gear for a relaxing week of fishing, surfing or cycling. Many plan events or multi-generational vacations that require large accommodations filled with resort-style amenities. Whatever the need, the varied inventory of Outer Banks homes easily meets the diverse requirements. Inventive homeowners continuously add new features to vacation homes. Kristen Constantineau, Marketing Manager at Resort Realty says, “The new

Brindley, Owner, President and General Manager of Brindley Beach Vacations and Sales highlights their properties’ new interior amenities, which include maxed out bathrooms and kitchens. “Think remodel,” he says. As for the exterior, imagine a pool and pool deck entertainment area equipped with a hot tub, an outdoor bar and games like bocce ball and corn hole, he tells us. Vacationers can expect new enhancements this summer. He explains, “[We’re offering] early check-in (with fee) and online booking and online payment. There are special discounts that appear about 6 weeks out if an owner decides to allow this.” The best advice when planning an Outer Banks vacation is to plan ahead and reserve your home early.

Of The Banks Outer

A

n area is defined by more than just its geographic boundaries. There are people, places and things within those dotted lines on a map that help shape the idea of that space. Some may be obvious, like monuments, museums, a beach or mountains. Others, still, are less obvious, like finding a perfect place to relax with a good meal and a good glass of wine as the sun sets. The Outer Banks are defined in many ways, but for me, I think of the food and foodways, both historic and contemporary, which have brought me to these barrier islands for the past quarter-century and keep bringing me back. Each and every one of my trips to the Outer Banks is filled with visiting familiar chefs at tried-and-true restaurants and discovering new and exciting places to dine. But one thing is consistent—the number of chef-driven restaurants on this special strip of land is phenomenal, and so many are honoring the food and foodways of the Outer Banks with exciting preparations utilizing fresh, local foods from land and from sea.

KEEPING IT LOCAL

One thing to keep in mind when looking for delicious dishes with the freshest ingredients is that agriculture and aquaculture are highly seasonal. That means that you can get a tomato in January, but it’s not locally grown, unless it came from a greenhouse. One thing that makes keeping it local so special, to me, is that not everything is available at all times, and when a certain ingredient is in season, like that tomato, it is richly red, plump and juicy; you can practically taste the fertile northeastern North Carolina soil from where it grew. That doesn’t mean that you can’t get good food out of season, but when you are able, you will be rewarded. The farmland just across the Currituck Sound from the Outer Banks grows an amazing abundance of produce: asparagus, beets, berries, butterbeans, melons, greens, herbs and more—including tomatoes. Take a little time to check out resources, like the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Service (NCFarmFresh.com) to see what is in market—and likely on chef’s menus—when you dine out.

The Outer Banks Catch program was established in June 2010. Membership in the group includes fishermen (many of whom are multi-generational watermen), seafood markets and grocers, community members, and restaurants. Just like food that grows on the land, food that grows in the sea is also very seasonal. From the waters of the North Carolina Atlantic coast and the waterways leading into the ocean come a wide abundance of seafood. In the spring and summer, it may be soft shell crabs. Come summertime, shrimp, mackerel and other finfish and shellfish join the offerings. With fall, flounder is a true delicacy, and winter is a great time for sea trout and succulent oysters. The Outer Banks Catch program was established in June 2010. Membership in the group includes fishermen (many of whom are multi-generational watermen), seafood markets and grocers, community members and restaurants. The group works in tandem to get Outer Banks-caught finfish and shellfish from the sea to serving platters.  Many restaurants in the region serve approved Outer Banks Catch seafood; a platter with the initiative’s name and stylized fish logo can be found near the eatery’s entrance to identify themselves as a member. Knowledgeable waitstaff can guide diners through what is in season and the best preparation methods. Do some due-diligence before dining out and visit the Outer Banks Catch website (OuterBanksCatch.com) to see what is literally jumping out of the water on onto your plate that evening.

THE CUISINE SCENE Dining out on the Outer Banks can be described in one word: diverse. OK, make that two words: deliciously diverse. Many restaurants here pride themselves on serving up a good, hearty breakfast, and this is where the region’s true Southern roots show. Look for pancake houses that offer hot-from-the griddle flapjacks with a myriad of toppings. Alongside, look for plates of bacon, sausage or country ham. There are omelets made with farm fresh eggs and vegetables, artisan muffins and other baked goods, and for brunch, places that try to outdo the next with bubbly mimosas and bloody mary bars with enough ingredients for topping the tomato tonic to feed an army. Some eateries pay homage to the seafoodcentric community with fried fish, oysters and clam fritters at breakfast, too—and don’t forget the North Carolina shrimp atop a bowl of hot, buttery grits. For lunch and dinner, restaurant offerings range from sandwich shops to oyster bars to fine dining eateries. Some are relatively new on the scene, while others have been feeding families of visitors for generations. Some seafood is done Old SchoolContinued on Page 118

style, crispy and fried, while others are crafted with such techniques, such as sous-vide.   Some restaurants cater to the surfing community, with Bajainspired dishes of fresh catch and high-quality beef and pork tucked in tortillas with seasonal vegetables and housemade salsa adorning the dishes. Here, look for tropical drinks and buckets of cold beer to temper the spicy heat. Still, others feature Southern cuisine, like barbecue, fried chicken, roasts and homestyle vegetables. At some you pull up a chair at a wooden bar, and at others you sit down at a crisp, white linen topped table. One item you can’t find on the menu are the stunning views of the water at many eateries, whether it’s the Atlantic Ocean or Currituck Sound; there are numerous offerings that allow diners to gaze out from the dining room, or in some cases, a patio. You can even have a true taste of the Outer Banks with an effortless patio party for family and friends; perhaps it’s at that beach cottage you are renting. Order up an assortment of dishes from a variety of restaurants, like steamed seafood, barbecue and the like, and then have an effortless patio party with local beer and wine. Many eateries are members of the Outer Banks Restaurant Association (OBRA). 

EDIBLE EVENTS Throughout the year, there are a number of events happening across the Outer Banks to showcase the delicious culinary offerings here. Each spring and fall, come for the Outer Banks Restaurant Week. So, what is Restaurant Week? It’s an

Specially priced lunch and dinner menus offer incentives to try new restaurants and rediscover old favorites. Prix fixe packages usually include an appetizer of soup or salad, an entrée and dessert. Also in the spring is the Taste of The Beach, a unique—and delicious— perspective of the area during shoulder season. The weekend-long event offers visitors several days of wine tastings, cooking classes, a chowder cook-off, special menu presentations at area restaurants, brewery tours, tapas crawls and more. Everything cumulates with the Taste of the Beach Grand Tasting where some two-dozen restaurants and other vendors gather for samples of their food and exhibitions of their hospitality in vying for prizes and recognition. Later during autumn is the March of Dimes Signature Chef Auction, another event that showcases the talent of local culinary professionals while raising money for the group.

Catch Of The Day Blue Crabs Are A Family Affair Along the Outer Banks

A

s the sun peeks up over the horizon to usher in a new day along the Albemarle and Pamlico sounds, hardworking crabbers have been up for hours baiting their crab pots and preparing for the day’s work. Steadily, they guide their boats through the same waters that have provided a livelihood for their fathers and grandfathers since Native Americans introduced them to the fare more than four centuries ago. For years, tourists have traveled to the area to take advantage of the fresh seafood that North Carolina has to offer. One of the most popular and abundant types of seafood in the state is blue crab. In fact, the state harvests about 30 million pounds annually. Despite the availability of fresh, locally-caught blue crab, many vendors are relying on seafood sourced outside North Carolina, and sometimes even outside the country. This is a detriment to fishing families that have called the Outer Banks home for generations. Fortunately, the tides could be turning for local fishermen.

Outer Banks Catch

is a nonprofit organization that helps local fishermen by promoting the seafood industry in Currituck, Dare, Hyde and Tyrrell counties. They encourage residents and visitors to purchase only local seafood. The organization is composed of

commercial fishermen, restaurant owners and other people who are interested in preserving and reviving the local seafood industry. Look for the Outer Banks Catch logo at seafood markets, restaurants and grocery stores. That lets you know you are receiving quality blue crab found in the waters of North Carolina. It also lets you know you are putting money back into the pockets of local fishermen and their families. Outer Banks Catch aims to serve as a knowledgeable guide to educate people on when blue crab and other seafood is available throughout the year, how to recognize if it is fresh, and how to cook it. Speaking of cooking, there are a variety of easy and delectable dishes to whip up while you’re enjoying your time along the Outer Banks. The easiest way to enjoy them is steamed over a boil of seafood seasoning and your favorite beer. You can also add the crabmeat to appetizers like stuffed mushrooms, or make a hot crab dip for your next party. Blue crab meat also makes delicious crab cakes your whole family will enjoy. To find retailers and restaurants that support fishermen throughout the Outer Banks, go to OuterBanksCatch.com. You can also learn more about the state’s seafood industry at Nc-Seafood.org.

T

he Outer Banks of North Carolina provides visitors with an amazing array of experiences. In fact, there are enough unique and memorable experiences to bring over 7 million visitors to the region each year. While the beaches are the headlining act of our amazing area, three of my favorite accompaniments to a visit in the Outer Banks are enjoying the local seafood along with local wine and craft beer. Let’s be honest, it just isn’t a vacation without some amazing food and drinks! The Outer Banks’ unique Atlantic coast ecosystem contributes to one of the most diverse, year-round selections of fish and shellfish available in the world. You can find fresh, local seafood at a large number of restaurants and seafood markets in the Outer Banks. Fresh-caught shrimp, locally harvested oysters, Flounder, Mahi-Mahi, Tuna and Striper headline the amazing seafood selections you will find when dining locally. Now that we are set on the food side, we definitely need something to wash down all that great seafood. Nothing goes better with great local seafood than local wine and beer. The Outer Banks is blessed with an outstanding selection of locally made wine and beer. Here are a few of the local favorites that are available for visits and to purchase on the Outer Banks. Wine of course is the traditional pairing with food, so let’s begin there. Sanctuary Vineyards has deep roots in the history of the Outer Banks. For seven generations, the Wright Family has called coastal Currituck County home. Much has changed since original settler Jacob Wright shipwrecked on the shores of Duck, but the family still honors the farming tradition established hundreds of years ago. Sanctuary Vineyards is the product of centuries of farming experience and a dedication to a dream to produce world-class wine in Currituck County. The Wright family created Sanctuary Vineyards to begin a new wine tradition. Brothers Tommy and Jerry Wright, and new generation John Wright, are using age-old methods to coax the sweetest fruit from these coastal sands. Sanctuary Vineyards is located on a quaint seaside farm where you are likely to see rows of corn competing with Cabernet and migratory snow geese nesting among the Sangiovese. Ten acres of grapes are nestled among hundreds of acres of farmland and wildlife impoundments that we like to call “The Sanctuary.” Varieties include Syrah, Tempranillo, Viognier, Norton and the classic Muscadine. Enjoying a beer with seafood is one of the great pleasures in coastal life. From the dark, roasty stouts and light, fruity wheat beers, to the floral bitterness of India Pale Ales, there is a beer for every drinker’s preference. The Outer Banks has a number of amazing craft brewers that are on the leading edge of this wave of craft beer. The Weeping Radish in Grandy, N.C. is the oldest microbrewery in North Carolina being founded in 1986 by Uli Bennowitz. Uli was instrumental in getting legislation passed, which allowed for breweries and

brewpubs to sell their product directly to the public, paving the way for the rich beer culture we enjoy in N.C. The Weeping Radish was founded upon traditional German brewing and continues that tradition today. Their flagship beers Corolla Gold, OBX Fest and Black Radish are traditional German lagers bringing a bit of the old country to our Outer Banks beer scene. Find out more at www.WeepingRadish.com. How do we follow up the first craft brewery in North Carolina? How about the first wind-powered brewpub in America? That’s right, Outer Banks Brewing Station is America’s first wind-powered brewpub, and it sits right here in Kill Devil Hills. Not only is wind power a fantastic way to help minimize the impact to our environment, but the Outer Banks Brewing Station is likely the only place to get cold beer during extended power outages from our not-so-friendly hurricanes. The brew master at Outer Banks Brewing Station brings a great deal of variety and innovation to the beach beer selection. While probably best known for their amazing LemonGrass Wheat Ale, their refreshing Olsch and their rich Briny-Deep Oyster Porter, these provide killer variety for any beer palate. Find out more at www.OBBrewing.com. On Roanoke Island, where the first English child was born in the New World, sits a gem of a brewpub to round out our discussion. Full Moon Café and Brewery sits in the heart of historic Manteo, a good cast away from the waterfront. The most accessible brewery of this group via boat, Full Moon has been in operation since 1995, when it was founded by Paul Charron and Sharon Enoch. Specializing in British and Irish-style beers, Full Moon is best known for their malty, English ale Lost Colony Ale and their darkly-inviting, Irish-style Charon Stout. The only thing that makes a walk around Manteo’s waterfront better on a beautiful day is enjoying one of their fine brews on the patio. Find out more at www.TheFullMoonCafe.com. About the authors: Phil and Laura Wayland have worked in the wine and beer industry for over 10 years and are the owners of both Chip’s Wine & Beer Market in Kill Devil Hills and Bacchus Wine & Beer Bistro in Corolla. Chip’s is celebrating its 11th year on the beach providing the largest selection of craft beer and fine wine on the Outer Banks. Bacchus, now in its 26th year, offers a large selection of gourmet deli, cheeses, fine wines and craft beer.

CELEBRATING 17 YEARS

It all began with three partners and their idea of starting a one-of-a-kind seafood buffet business. One of the partners, my husband Jerry Dowless, decided to buy out the business in May of 2003. Unfortunately, Jerry passed away in August of that same year, leaving me and my three children with a tough decision. We are so glad we made the choice to carry on our dreams because, today, we can proudly celebrate being in business for 17 fun and successful years. Jimmy’s offers the usual seafood fare, but with an emphasis on a Caribbean twist, giving our food choices diverse flavors from all over the world. When it comes to our buffet, we have high hopes you will not be disappointed with all that is offered. Undoubtedly you will find unique seafood options as well as traditional Southern food and made-to-order desserts! In addition to our tasty food, our welcoming and down-to-earth staff will certainly make you feel at home when dining at Jimmy’s Seafood Buffet. After being in business for 17 years now, we are proud to be known as the “Vacation Destination” by people from all over. To all of you who come back year after year, and to those who plan to come in the future, my children and I thank you dearly. —Liz Dowless
