Thank you to all of the men and women who have served and continue to serve our country. Have a Safe and Happy Memorial Day from your friends at Shades of Summer!
Tod and I spent the past week relaxing and just enjoying Shades of Summer and boy did we have fantastic weather! Blue skies, sun and very warm temperatures all week. Not a drop of rain in sight! It looks like next week is more of the same. We even got to sit on the back deck and watch the boats cruise by. Sadly, we must leave tomorrow morning as our next guests will be checking in.

Some great news was announced regarding the federal approval for the Mid-Currituck bridge! Once built, this bridge will shave 50 minutes to an hour + off the drive time for those coming from the north to Corolla depending on the time of year. In the off season, it will definitely save us about 50 minutes! In the busy season, it's even more. For anyone who has been following this project, you know how long this bridge has been waiting for approval, so this is a huge leap forward! We will continue to keep you updated as we learn more. ...
