Corolla lighthouse is also a must-see. While you're there, enjoy the historic shops of Old Corolla Village, too. A photo we snapped of a Corolla store front actually became the cover of The Sea Glass Sisters -- my first time to have one of my photos used on a book cover. That was a thrill, and a day of good memories was attached to the photo too.

While you're on the Outer Banks, don't miss traveling out to Old Town Manteo on Roanoke Island, where the Sir Walter Raleigh's Lost Colonists were dropped off almost forty years before the pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. Unlike the pilgrims, the Lost Colonists vanished into history… but their legacy lives on in an epic outdoor drama reenacted on the Outer Banks each summer.

    I love this board! OBX is the setting for my book The Prayer Box. I'll be at Duck's Sept. 24. 2PM. Would love to meet you there or at the Arts Council event at 6PM to benefit Sea Turtle Pres. Society. Jamie at Ducks Downtown book store has the details, or my website.

Prayer box Mylor Bridge.Nice idea for a community prayer box.

Another nice example of a prayer box! Perhaps Iola would have decorated some of hers this way in the story, with ribbon and other treasures?

A beautiful prayer box. This is more-or-less how I make mine, too. Pretty boxes and found items are perfect. Great craft to do with kids, too! "Prayer Box created with mod podge, tacky glue, Bible pages, scrapbook paper, carboard and wooden letters, paint, doilies, lace, and other decals."
