Reasons for trip


Duck, North Carolina is a great place on the Outer Banks. It is quiet and not filled with tourist attractions and huge crowds and it is close to attractions such as the Wright Brothers National Park where the story of the first aviated flight is told very well. There are two B&B in Duck, N.C. and we chose the Sleeping Duck because it hosted a billiards room, nice rooms, a large screen TV for viewing the Master’s Golf Tournament and attactive prices. There are a choice of suites that range from $125 per night to $140 per night. The breakfast featured a choice of some 16 different types of just baked bagels. My favorite was a newly discovered French Toast bagel. The soft classical music that plays in the kitchen is a very nice touch. There is no view of the ocean or Cheaspeake Bay, but this is just a short walk away. And the benefit of the location is complete quiet.

When we were there with friends we had the keys to the large and spacious house and grounds and thus came and went as we liked. The only complaint that I have against the Sleeping Duck is that in 11 games of pool I managed only 3 wins and these were all on fluke shots.
