Duck, NC is a quaint beach town on the 'Outer Banks'
of North Carolina. We spend a few days several times
a year in Corolla, NC just ten miles north of Duck.
When we were there in May, I noticed several of the
little shops in Duck had perfect beach store fronts 
and signage. With trusty camera in hand I began
 to snap some pictures and thought I would share
 them with you here. Included are some other sights
from this very special place. I will share some 
actual beach pictures soon in another post.
 Enjoy your quick 'unnarrated' tour!

LIFE IS GOOD, isn't it?!
Have a happy & safe Summer. I plan
to be posting weekly, so check back often.
Blessings, Mary P

I would love it there! I love small towns and if they are on the coast, I love them even more.

Thanks for the fantastic tour, loved the line of colorful chairs and that beach glass table top was awesome.

Hope you enjoyed the holiday weekend.

Mary, so nice to see your little bit of heaven on earth there at Duck. Love the beach glass table and the beach glass mosaic. My family has been collecting beach glass for I don't know how many years, it was how we kept the kids busy at the beach when they were young and now we just can't seem to stop!
