Good about Duck

The Tarot reader at Beach Braids is awesome. She is so nice and personable and the readings she gave were accurate too.

So, the best thing about Duck post-incorporation is the Tarot Card Reader? Makes sense.

No no no, See what "good about Duck" was saying is that post incorporation she, because what self respecting man would go to a tarot card reader unless he was a fag trying to get his palm read, disagrees with this heretical magic taking place in what was once a quaint fishing village. Now it seems like the only fish that are caught are trout or red snapper. To say that Village of Duck has gone downhill is like saying clubbing a baby seal might not be a nice thing. But that's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

The Fire Department is the biggest joke in Duck! What's up with the fat red headed one that thinks he's GOD or something! Does he always pat himself on the back for nothing done in a 24 hour period! WTF!

I'm from NC also. I made a comment earlier in this thread joking about a fence at the Va line, which I meant as a joke.

I don't care from what part of the country a person is from, just like I don't care what color or ethnicity a person is. Gender? only in the case of the fact that I like women.....mmmmmm..... women, I like them tits and pussies. But, not to get sidetracked. The point is, that over-development of a natural area is a terrible thing. Terrible thing. The strip malls, the concrete, the asphalt, the chain stores and restaurants, etc. These things have completely ruined what was once the natural beauty of the previously pristine barrier island/peninsula. All the way from Carova to Nags Head. Somewhat so in Manteo, not really that much so further south into Hatteras. But Duck has turned into a real shithole, regardless of what sort of people it is who have contributed to making it that way.
Well Duh

Why is Duck the only town in Dare County where you can not park alongside the road to access the beach? Support Beach Access in Duck!

They are all privately owned by Homeowners Associations.

Duck Owners like Duck Owners and people who rent cottages from Owners.

The only thing Duck wants from non-Owners/Renters is your money from their businesses. They do not want you cheap people, who do not rent or own Duck Property, using their beach. Don't you know?

Just drive in, spend at the stores, and LEAVE.

NOT ALL ROADS IN DUCK ARE PRIVATELY OWNED BY HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATIONS. Plover Dr. as well as several others are state maintained roads with deeded public beach access.
The Duck town council took it upon themselves to pass an oridinance making it illegal to park alongside these streets. This made the public beach access rights we once enjoyed virtually impossible to access.
Southern Shores does allow parking if you pay the Civic Association dues.

We don't need outsiders coming to our beaches in Duck. If we let outsiders use the beach there will be widespread drinking, surfing, public nudity, drugs, and partying on the beach. Our quaint little town will be ruined.
You can keep all that in Kill Devil Hills!

I agree...I've noticed blacks at our beaches, this is a very scary thing.
Why is it

Rolesville, NC

#40 Nov 7, 2009
I agree with dvo. Duck should allow off street parking, as the other towns do, for beach access.
Why is it that Duck's parking ordinance prohibits parking along state roads for beach access but there are signs on Sea Hawk Dr. East(state rd.1494) that encourage off street beach access parking for Sea Hawk residents? Could it be because half the town coucil/ planning board lives on Sea Hawk Dr. West?

Do you mean that locals will do these off season opposed to what renters do during the summer? You ruined your little town when you sold your soul for a dollar! And it is outsiders who rent your homes and bring with them drugs and partying and guns and theft and on and on. I have done service work in your Mayberry assed town and have found more drugs and guns and money that were left behind by those saints you rent to. Funny know one claims them after they go back to outsider ville. you poor vile little person; you really think your crap does'nt stink? Please buld a Causeway around your little town and see how quick you shrivle up. Most do not even like going thru your sainted area. Put the speed limit up to 35 and most will not even stop at Saint lose your money. Screw your town a** wipe.
Keep Duck exclusive

MESSAGE TO "BITE ME"
I agree with most of your points. I'm just saying that by keeping the beach accesses exclusive to HOA members and guests we can keep most of the riff raff out of town
