Off On Our Trip to Duck, NC

Today's the day...we're leaving on our trip to Duck, North Carolina. We're going to pick the girls up early from school, and head down to Snow Hill, Maryland to stay the night. Tomorrow morning, we'll look for some wild horses in Assateague or Chincoteague, then drive another four or five hours to the Sanderling Resort & Spa in Duck, NC. Over the long weekend, Mariuca and LadyJava (who now has 7 blogs and has been nominated for Best Diarist in the BlogNet Awards -- vote, vote vote!) are going to be looking out for Roxiticus Desperate Housewives and Roxy's Best Of...

A few years back (July 2005), Rex read a travel article by Cindy Price in The New York Times about “36 Hours In…Duck, North Carolina.” Ever since, he’s been hoping to take London, Maddie, and me away for a long weekend, and this year, we’ve found the time. In preparation for our trip, I've been posting the things we plan to do — including restaurants and kid stuff — over on Roxy's Best Of... Duck, North Carolina. We're going to be in the Outer Banks for several days, so we needed to plan for lots more than 36 hours in Duck, NC, and we did so with the help of our southern colleague and friend, Brent.

As directed by the 36 hours article, we made plans to stay at the Sanderling Resort & Spa, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the Currituck Sound. We've also made the recommended dinner reservations at the Blue Point Bar & Grill as well as a special birthday dinner at Elizabeth's Cafe and Winery. My Jedi clam eaters, London and Maddie, are ready for Jimmy Buffett Karaoke at the Sunset Grille and Raw Bar... they'll be practicing the lyrics for Margaritaville during the 8 or 9 hour drive from New Jersey.

We're planning to check out the Wright Brothers National Memorial and have barbecue ribs for lunch at High Cotton BBQ in Kitty Hawk.
