The cleaning crew should "squeggie" the slider every two weeks or so 3
We even saw dolphins while swimming in the ocean
and we are so glad we did
so I could trust them that the gf was actually gf
We stayed with our three children ages 5 3 and 4 months Duck is very family friendly and very walkable
and it's a really short walk to the beach
The kids had a blast on the beach (which is just a short walk across the boardwalk - so convenient and close )
The town of Duck itself has a few small grocery shops
Had a selection of books and puzzles for the stormy day and great suggestions on local fare
It's close enough to Duck to make it easily accessible without being right in the busy area
