As I mentioned before I have vacationed several times in the North Carolina Outer Banks . In November 1992 I spent a night in the Lighthouse View motel in Buxton . The motel lies between route 12 and the ocean. The picture was taken looking back towards route 12 from a beach access. My car is the white Toyota Tercel at the upper right. This car was the third of five I have owned.
Most of the buildings shown were destroyed the following year by Hurricane Emily which hit Buxton hard. The motel was rebuilt but I don't think I have been back.
