Village Cork and Bean

I have tried to post this for a week now. Not sure what the heck is going on with Blogger but hopefully it is back to normal now. We will see when I hit the post button, I guess. And if you are reading this than we must be good to go. Thank goodness!
So we are back from a week in Corolla on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. What a relaxing week we had. I have so much to share with you. I will have to do it in separate posts so I don't overload you. This lovely little spot is the porch of the Village Cork and Bean in Duck. My daughter and I enjoyed smoothies here while out shopping. It is such a charming spot. If ever in Duck, do stop by. It is a magical little place with huge trees serving as canopies with hanging paper lanterns. In the evening they offer wine tastings here and on the lower patio. I went shell seeking daily and came home with some perfectly gorgeous black ones. I am so excited because I have a project I have been collecting these black shells for for a couple of years. Hopefully I have enough now. We'll see.  I miss the beach and the sounds of the ocean and the wet sand underfoot. The treasure hunt for seashells. We even went to see the wild horses via 4wd Jeeps. What fun that was. I will share those images with you soon if blogger lets me. Love and hugs to you all. Oh how I have missed all of you.

  3. well hello tammy!! what a delight to see you after a while :) love the pictures you took. what a place that must be ... old wood and peeling paint :) ahhhh....

  4. Our family rents a condo at Carolina Beach each summer, so I know how relaxing it can be. This year I won't be going, but my son will.

    I will tune in to read more of your posts.


  5. We just came back earlier in the week from visiting family and friends in NC. Sounds like you had a great time and that little cafe looks like a great spot to relax. Best wishes, Tammy

  6. I'm so glad you had a wonderful, relaxing time in NC! I love going to the Outer Banks. We used to go every year when I was a kid. Went back for the first time since then about 4 years ago. It's changed somewhat, but not as much as I would expect.

    Can't wait to see all your pictures!

  7. Welcome back to blogland. Sounds like you had a wonderful relaxing holiday

  8. Tammy,

    We've been going to OBX for 20 years, and it is amazing how you can always find those great little spots like your Village Cork and Bean. Thanks for sharing. We'll have to go next time down.
