The Hawthornes And Maxine Visit Manns Harbor Christmas Displays.

As I wrote earlier, after we finished eating Sunday afternoon at Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe, we had time to kill so we went sightseeing in Manteo.
Our destination and goal was to be in Manns Harbor at a certain time - sundown. Our timing was awkward. We'd just finished lunch. If we headed back North to home, we'd arrive just in time to go inside, pee, turn around, and come back South where we were, and then go some more South to Manns Harbor. It made sense to continue South from Basnight's to Manteo and take a little sightseeing tour through a wonderfully quaint, eclectic, and, dare I say, Bohemian town. Thusly, we ended up going to see the Elizabeth II, the Freedmen's Colony, Fort Raleigh, the Waterside Theater, a drive by of the Elizabethan Gardens, and the North Carolina Aquarium.
Our destination was a Christmas light display at a home in Manns Harbor and the display at the Manns Harbor Post Office, which was decorated by Michael C., the decorator of the home. I'd heard about him from the message boards at See here. There was also another mention of him in the Red Drum Tackle Shop Forums. Seems there was a contest at WAVY TV 10 in Norfolk and Michael was in the running. He didn't win but he was in the top 5.
I'll just shut up now and let you take in the pictures and videos. Words aren't needed.
The following video is of the Manns Harbor Post Office. It was decorated by the same gentleman who did the above decorations.
Merry Christmas To All and Thank You To Michael Coley of Manns Harbor! Stay tuned for the Poulos' Christmas display.

Thanks Rosie. Did not get down there to see the display this year so your videos were much appreciated.
