He first came to the outer banks some 50 years ago with his parents, and they date back some 60 years. They made the Tower Circle Motel in Buxton their home away home and he now stays there since its renovation. He and his family have made Hatteras Island their vacation destination for many years and his kids now regard OBX as their place in the sun. He has been a member of NCBBA since 1981 and will continue to support its mission, and hope that you will as well. “KEEP THOSE BEACHES OPEN!”
