NC's Outer Banks:
A National Historical Treasure

NC's Outer Banks Banner

...where the New World began.

          Currituck County, North Carolina, is the farthest point north in the Outer Banks. It is a beautiful place with hilly dunes and it is the home of the Wild Horses of Corolla. Corolla, the official home of the Currituck Light Station and the Whalehead Club, also claims the last stretches of beach before the Virginia border. This is where the road ends, and 4-wheel drive country begins. It is here that, with luck, you may see one of the Wild Horses of Corolla.

"Mystery Over Mystery"

What is it about this place that so mystifies me?
Land and water, sand and sea, wind and salt,
could it be all of these?
Sound and ocean, and a strip of land lie beside the
blue green sea,
and endless sunsets, brightly orange,
over the sound and land and sea.
Dunes and Ocean
This area seems to hypnotize me,
and I can't seem to let it be.
In my imagination
all the things that have transpired here,
through toil and supplication,
render one in constant contemplation.

Sunset Mystery over mystery emanates from this place.
Good and evil here have inexplicably met face to face.
And of the lost ones I do ponder, their suffering,
their fortune, and their probable fate.

So come to me, wash over me, the ancient ebb and flow,
and maybe, just maybe someday, to this place I'll go.
