Seafood Market around Duck/
Do any locals or VTers know of a good seafood market?
Looking for a good recommendation to feed 15-20 people on locally caught fish/ reasonably priced good seafood.
Re: Seafood Market around Duck/
We haven't been there for a few years but here's what I remember.
There's a market right in Duck. You can see it on the left as you go North. They used to have a nice selection of seafood. Not the cheapest but the most convenient.
As you come onto the island across the bridge, there a seafood place on the right. The name might be Carawon. Not as convenient but cheaper. We usually got crabs from there.
Travel Tips for Duck
Look for the Painted Horses!
While we were down in the Outer Banks we saw serveral Painted Horses from Corolla to South NagsHead. We had the Painted Dinos up here in Wilmington and the ones that we think started it all was the Painted Cows in Chicago IL. This has become a fast growing art project across this country, it's pretty neat if you catch them on display some where. Ocean City MD. had some really cool birds all over town, Rehoboth Beach DE had great Dolphins. So you may want to keep an eye out in a town near you for these growing art forms! OH and grab your camera and play a game to see how many there are, and if you check with the local visitor center in a town where you find some they will have a list of all and they locations.

A great place to take foreign friends
Showing friends from out of town the best the Outer Banks has to offer. PICTURED: my French friend Luc Marcellin and me in the rougher water (August, 1992). This picture was taken moments before my brother slammed into Luc with his boogie board. At the time, I was teaching Luc some Southern expressions. At the time my brother hit, Luc called him a dipstick in a French accent. It sounded like DEEP-steek.
Every time we drove north to the condo unit, we saw Kitty Hawk Kites just south of the water tower. Then we saw someone on the beach in front of the unit flying a kite, which may have been one of their kites. Kite flying seems to be one of the favored activities, and it has the advantage that it doesn't matter whether the water is cold, and the more surf (and wind) the better. If you like to fly a kite, this is the place
Address: HWY 12 Wee Winks Square in Duck
They also have 11 other shops throughout the outer banks and they also offer tandem hang gliding, ultralight instruction, guided kayak ecotours, sport wall climbing, kite boarding, jet boat tours, and parasailing
This is a great place to go bird watching, so many type and sizes. Bring your camera and have a ball. The sound side is were you will have the best luck, there are serveral walkways to get you out for a closer look. Also up in Corolla at the end of Route 12 as a paved road ( only 4X4's can go any further from there ) you will find the North Carolina Estuarine Reseach Reserve. Up there you will have a more interesting choice of Horses or birds, so if you take that trip take more batteries and memory for your camera!
