I recently had the opportunity to spend a wonderful week in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We stayed in Salvo, a laid-back area of the Outer Banks, and it was just charming. Since it is before the summer season really starts, we had the beaches to ourselves and it was like having a private island.
One of our favorite restaurants, which was located in Avon, was the Froggy Dog. It’s a casual place with a separate bar area and also a nice deck. Our food was delicious. The first stop we had steamed shrimp and the most delicious french fries we have ever tasted. It is located on the main drag so you can’t miss it. If you get down to OBX, we recommend the Froggy Dog.
We also took a trip, by ferry, to Ocracoke Island for the day. It was a beautiful ferry ride, which is free, and the ferries run about every half hour. We weren’t sure where to eat lunch but then we came across the Flying Melon. I had a delicious Curried Chicken salad and my husband had a tasty Spinach salad. It is a place we would definitely go back to and highly recommend. The island itself was quite charming and most people were walking throughout the restaurant and shop district.
