Carol’s Travel Tip

If you are ever in the area of the Outer Banks, please take my advise and go over to Roanoke Island and see the outdoor drama The Lost Colony.

This is a wonderful moving and lasting memory you will always cherish as I have.

Music, wonderful actors (actually I met Andy Griffith because he was good friends with the owners of the Booth House), and he first started out in acting as Sir Walter Raleigh. By the way, my favorite people to meet staying at the Booth House were the past and present at the time the actors who played Sir Walter Raleigh. So handsome…..were they.

Be sure to check the schedule for this wonderful outdoor drama.

 Father Christmas visits the bedrooms of each guest bringing presents and a glass of champagne.

You can spend Christmas listening to Syeda, the harpist,  or Ruari the resident pianist. And on Christmas day in the Front Hall watching the Queen’s Speech at 3:00 p.m.

What a wonderful place to visit and have a Scottish memory to last a lifetime.
