My daughter and I have been visiting Mr. Malco’s strawberry patch just across the Wright Memorial Bridge in Currittuck for the past 11 years. (That’s just off the Outer Banks for our visitors.) We have never been disappointed, although we may have out done ourselves this year, since, if I’m doing my math ...<< MORE >>
