Avon, the place I want to spend the rest of my life. A small, quaint, fishing village. It’s beautiful, laid back, and friendly.
Willow absolutely loves Avon. She would rather be running on the beach than to be anywhere else. Pockets loves it too. He loves to sit in the window and watch the birds and the world go by.
The dunes are so pretty. Avon has some of the highest dunes on the island. It’s one of the reasons why the ocean side of the island doesn’t flood.
There are many different type water birds in the area. They are fun to watch and photograph.
Almost everywhere you look, there is pampas grass. I would love to have these in my yard.
We have an Ace Hardware in the village. There is also a Food Lion, which is the only major grocery chain on the island. The Dollar Tree is a very popular store. If it can’t be found in either of those two stores, you will most likely find it at Ace. Because of the lack of chain stores, the ones we have carry a variety of things they usually wouldn’t carry.
On the other side of the island is Pamlico Sound. On windy days, the Sound is filled with kite boarders and wind surfers. It’s amusing to see the signs outside of the surf shops saying they are only open on windy days, during the off-season.
The only stop light on the island is in Avon, mostly because of the Volunteer Fire Department being down the side road.
One of our favourite hangouts in season. Unfortunately, it closes in the off-season.
This is just a sampling of Avon. There is so much more. If you love beach living, this is the place to be.
