From the Sanderling Resort:  Everything is either north or south, just off NC Route 12.

 

I.         The “Wedding House” is located at 255 Longfellow Cove.  The name of it is “A Joy Forever.”  It is located less than 2 miles north of the Sanderling Inn. 

All roads you pass on your way are off to the right.  You pass

                  Salthouse

                  Cadwall/Cottage Cove

                  Ogein

                  Pine Point – TURN RIGHT

Immediately, turn RIGHT onto Longfellow Cove.

Very shortly, just past the first house on your left, pass Ballast Pt. Street on your left.

#255 Longfellow is the 2nd house (FIRST DRIVEWAY) on your left. 

It is light BLUE/GREY and sorta sits back a bit.

If you see a house named Casa Blanca, you have gone too far. 

#255 is just before it on the left.

 

II.         Hampton Inn

Is located about 1 mile further north beyond the Wedding House, or just under 3 miles north of the Sanderling.

 

III.       The picnic Saturday afternoon is at the picnic Pavilion at the Whalehead Club in Corolla.

To get there, the total distance is roughly 12 miles north of the Sanderling on the left.  The signs say Currituck Heritage Park, and you will see the tall red brick lighthouse.  Once you pass through the entrance, immediately turn right.  The picnic shelter is straight ahead with parking in the lot on the right.
