What a boring headline! Ha Ha- Click bait free that’s for sure. I often try a few headlines to snag glancers.
But this one will have to do this time. Honestly the headline DOES drag in more viewers so if you are a writer
take it from one who has been down this hook-em road for a long time. Sadly- it does work to bring in
more folks. And after all, that’s what we bloggers crave isn’t it? Rabid readers. Not really my style but it’s late. Let’s
go with it this once.
Check this story out- It’s a good one
Not only is that a great story. I just watched a smart video with Andrew Huberman explaining how having a gratitude practice is best when you watch or hear about someone else receiving a gift and experiencing a sense of gratitude. That actually enhances your OWN feelings and can release feel good happy sprinkles in you. Win- win.

When I was a kid- we spent many wonderful days on the Outer Banks. Of course dropping by the Lost Colony was a Summer ritual.
We’d memorize parts of the play which BTW- was the starting place of Andy Griffith’s career. He played Walter Raleigh- of course he did- did you think he was a bad guy?
We often camped at one of the many hot, sandy, bath-house smells like school paste but you get used to it, camp grounds. And loved it.
Tripped over a rock…
One year I had a broken foot with a cast up to me knee. Sand in the cast. You don’t want to know.
Long story short( er) The Lost Colony is a must see. After all these years they have it down to a science. Dancing, drama, comedy, and the smell of outdoor drama suntan lotion complete with sun-kissed faces and happy campers and tourists from literally all over the world.
Check out the video below for a great take on The Lost Colony. It’s done by the folks at Khan Academy. Plus I’ve got another one somewhere on this site. Just search and it will surface.
It’s that time again. The Lost Colony of North Carolina is an outdoor drama on Roanoke Island near Manteo NC. If you visit the coast of Carolina this summer- plan to stop by . There’s lots to see and do.
