Homeward Bound

Brandus and I have been discussing (and discussing and discussing) and we decided quite a while ago that this was to be our last year in Pants, Alaska. We’re tired of village life. We’re tired of not being able to order pizza. We’re tired of having to spent an obscene amount of money to get Lord Voldemort to the doctor when he gets sick.

So, the question on everyone’s mind (and really, everyones. My parents, his parents, my sisters, the cats..) has been, “where are you going?”

Good question.

We talked about it – endlessly. Staying in Alaska in town for another year, moving to Washington State, moving to the South, moving somewhere random in between so long as it wasnt Kansas…good points and bad points to everything.

However! We have, in fact, picked a state. We just need a town.

Anybody know anything about coastal North Carolina?

    I do, AND I have friends in the eastern part of the state.

    How close to the ocean do you want to be? Is riverfront property acceptable? How big do you need/want the city to be population-wise? Is having a healthfood store nearby important?

    My relatives lived about 5 hours from the coast, so that won’t help… But NC is still supposed to be beautiful!

    Wilmington is one of the coastal cities. Debbie and I were there camping and hanging out at the beach when Princess Di died. That beach is what I think of every time people mention her.
