This was our 1st time to the Inner Banks. My oldest son is stationed @ Cherry Point Air Station, so he was able to take the ferry to join us for his 4th of July leave. Hurricane Arthur added to our adventure, on our 2nd day, and even though the winds roared we were safe & comfy in Calla Lilly. (Many thanks to the rental staff & neighbors for helping us prepare for his arrival). This home was a perfect fit for us. It was spotless & very welcoming. We made use of the gas grill most every night & my teenage daughter, the smoothie queen, loved the blender. The lush green yard, beach, dock & saltwater pool made for nonstop entertainment for all three kids. My favorite place was the porch swing with a cool drink & good book. We were thrilled to see the dolphins heading up the Neuse in the early morning hours. We ventured out to Cape Lookout for a short day trip, which was absolutely beautiful.
I could not have asked for a better place to share time away with my family. Hopefully we will get the chance to come again next year. (crossing fingers my Marine doesn't get deployed) Thanks so much for helping us make great family memories that will last a lifetime.
