I saw your message earlier today on the WHS site at Classmates.com. I live in North Carolina, too, about 30 minutes west of Chapel Hill (about 4 hours from OBX). I graduated in '63 and I'd like to say I remember you being several year behind me. My brother David was '66; you may have known him better. Anyway, just wanted to drop a note to say Hello.
Now that I know about the Island House, I'm sure I can convince my wife that we should come for a stay.
Have a wonderful holiday. Hope to hear back from you.
