For several years now we have enjoyed having dinner at Nags Head Pizza, which is located on the spit of land that sticks out from Whalebone Junction toward Roanoke Island. U.S. Highway 64 runs right past it. The pizza there is good, but even better is a fine southwest view across marshes toward the setting sun in late autumn. Our visit this year coincided with a particularly fine sunset.

I wish Nags Head Pizza paid me for the publicity, but we just like the pizza.
