Funny you should mention it…
Duck is an Outer Banks retreat. I think I also stayed there first week of September, many years ago, … a step sister had a condo there, and she let her younger brother, me and another friend use it for a week… free of charge. (I think)
We started to go stir crazy after a couple of days. (what's there to do around here?)
So "light out and look all around."
Ocean City, Maryland is your friend. (Sort of like Asbury, Park, New Jersey.)
