I've been reading your blogs posts for some time and started getting your email updates a few months ago. I came across you when doing some reading about Beaufort, NC.

I lived in your country for 9 years and visited the Outer Banks, the Emerald Isle, Beaufort and places in the area on many occasions (my wife was from Rocky Mount, so we naturally visited NC regularly).

Back home now in Brisbane, Australia, from time to time I get the urge to go back and see what is happening in your area. The best way to do that is to visit, however that's not possible right now, so the internet is the mode.

I enjoyed this posting, as I recently move to a beach-side location, and have just experienced the first influx of tourists and the effect on eating out etc. The feel of seeing the water every day is hard to describe, though you have done so very well.

Thanks for the brought back some great memories of times spent in NC.

I've enjoyed your posts on the area and insights on Apple. We have a place in Gloucester where my Father grew up and my brother has the "old home place." If we were not living there, we would spend most of our summers there with our great-aunts and -uncles, playing with cousins. It is right on the Straits. They had sheep, chickens, milk cows, grew cabbage and beans, plowed with mule and horse. And the water, oysters, clams, fishing, floundering at night under the full moon. As a teenager I delivered eggs for one of my uncles who had an egg business. Some of my stops were in Salter Path. My wife is from the mountains with family in Bryson City, Webster, Sylva, Sandy Mush. We've seen a lot of changes in the state since the 50s. Appreciate your appreciation of the area.
