one of the reasons i wanted to go back to this old beach house, circa 1920's, was to photograph some of the interior's history, black and white family shots ... nags head, outer banks.....old weathered grey shingles, on the water, still with the original family. rented only to friends of friends. we had a lovely first visit in october......quiet time there. very quiet. thought we'd try may. not so quiet, and so much colder...the NORTHEASTERN blew for 3 days. cold. rainy. let go of expectations. play scrabble in front of the oven. forget the hammock for the duration!!
