Manteo, NC

You may want to pronounce this like man-tay-oh.  But nope, all the locals call it manny-oh.  So....however weird that seems...that what we have to call it too.  haha  :)  Manteo is on Roanoke Island which is between inland NC and the Outer Banks.  In fact it is technically (at least I think so) part of the Outer Banks of NC. 

My Mom and I left for our trip to the Outer Banks around 8am on Wednesday April 13th.  We got to Manteo around 11:30 or so, and we ate lunch (split a wonderful Rueben!) at Poor Richard's.  This is the place that we'd found back in August and just had to eat there again!  It's just delish!!!  :)
 Then we walked over and saw this beauty...
 Roanoke is a small Island and they have this Weather tower near the lighthouse, that displays flags to tell (warn) about weather.  Cool huh?
 Another view....

  2. Thanks! Well, you and your fam are welcome to stay with us anytime! We are about 2.5 hours from Wilmington Beach and 3.5-4 from the Outer Banks. :)
