We are here! I am with my extended family this week. We stay in a beautiful beach house called Stillwater.
In addition to the beach, the old town is still there. Many of the buildings are being used for other purposes. There is a great bookstore and some other shops that are interesting. The church is being used by a group raising funds to support the wild horses in the area. A great barbecue shack is in the town; it is reasonable and delicious! The gardens in the town are beautiful. The lighthouse towers over it all. We go to an area where the kids can catch crabs with just a rope. There are beautiful wooded hikes, and the horses run free in one area of Corolla. The ground is very sandy, so it is best to take a tour to see the horses.
And of course, I would be remiss if I didn’t talk about the fun at the beach. My mom and dad go. Most of my four sisters with twelve children and the husbands go. Now there are great grandchildren being introduced to the beach. There are so many people and we have a great time together.
Wherever you are headed this summer, have a great vacation!
