This was Jeffrey's first time in North Carolina. Even though my dad's family is from North Carolina and I grew up in Virginia Beach, I had never been to Knotts Island. I loved to drive through Pungo in high school, but somehow never had the courage to keep going past the border.
It was only Jeff's second visit and I wanted to show him where I grew up, but in the process I realized how much of the area I didn't know. We discovered this together.
