carova in the fall = beautiful + remote
As we always say, the beauty of the Outer Banks in the fall is one of the best parts of living or visiting here. This wonderfully written article from Nancy Sorrells in the Staunton News Leader perfectly captures the remote beauty of Carova.
“But there is still a hidden jewel within the Outer Banks. If you cross Wright Memorial Bridge to the islands and turn left, the commercialism begins to disappear as you drive north on Highway 12. As you pass through Southern Shores, Duck and Corolla, the place gets less and less crowded although there are still stores and restaurants and gas stations in abundance. Once you get beyond the red brick Currituck lighthouse, the road soon ends. It just stops. There is a cattle guard at the end of the road and a fence stretches from the ocean across the land to the sound.”
