Dearest Gentle Traveler,
I am abuzz with Lady Whistledown’s writing style in the popular Netflix series, Bridgerton, and thought it would be amusing to try blogging using her formal and witty style. It is often said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I beg you to bear with me as I try to do Lady Whistledown some justice.
As the summer season draws near, I thought I would provide some tips to make your vacation season more memorable. For many, the path to a perfect vacation day begins with breaking fast. In the Outer Banks, sweet-tooth travelers come from afar to taste a Duck Donut at the original location in the charming town of Duck, which is short carriage ride north of our cottage.
Only seasoned travelers know that it takes admirable forethought to order Duck Donuts early and online (www.duckdonuts.com/duck-nc) whilst avoiding a needless wait at the storefront. Fear not, if one cannot place an order online and must stand and wait one’s turn with other weary travelers, the view of the Currituck Sound and the aroma of the sweet delicacies surely makes the time pass quickly. So many to choose and desired by all, there is nothing on earth quite so envied as a Duck Donut.
Regardless, of how one orders their donut, one should never drive alone to the Duck storefront. A coachman or wingperson is absolutely necessary due to the lack of parking spaces at this popular location. A savvy donut partner can sit idly in the adjacent parking lot at Super Wings, whilst the other partner retrieves their donuts. Yes, Super Wings, the land where all cheap trinkets multiply daily. Should one foolishly park and walk away toward the donut shop, rest assured that tow trucks will carry your vehicle off. Do avoid being towed—tis a humbling experience that leaves no victor and a trail of broken donut hearts.
An appreciation of the finer donut is what lifts us beyond mere animals. Do let us know if the donut stirs your passions.
