|Trying to become an oyster person (and failing)|
The slow-paced nature of the area and the lack of a bounty of tourist attractions actually made the destination optimal. Instead of a tiring and packed trip, we had lazy mornings, were able to soak in all the sights during the day, and be back in the hotel with a couple of hours to relax before dinner. I even had time to go to the gym. The icing on my cupcake was the food we indulged in from the seafood Thanksgiving dinner, classic BLT in an old-school diner, a fancy three-course meal downtown, freshly baked donuts, a barbecue feast of pulled pork and hush puppies at a local favorite, and a fried fast food spread at Cookout (I've never been!).

The picturesque main street where we milled around viewing demonstrations in colonial jewelry shops, bookstores, and bakeries to name a few
Decadent foie gras with hazelnuts and blackberries at Fat Canary
My favorite was the maple glazed and bacon topped donut
Think you could sleep in one of those with thirty of your closest family, friends, and neighbors?
