The Bodie Island Lighthouse, (pronounced "Body") is located just south of the town of Nags Head and Whalebone Junction, where Highway 158, Highway 64, and NC Highway 12 intersect. Visitors travelling towards Hatteras Island can't help but notice the black and white horizontal striped structure, peaking out over a line of dense cedar trees on the soundside.
If you cherish top quality kitchen tools and equipment, this store is a joy to shop at. New in 2012 at the Outer Banks Mall, A Culinary Affair offers full lines of KitchenAid, Mercer Cutlery, Cuisipro kitchen tools, Riedel wine glasses, Boos Block cutting boards, Calphalon cook ware, Harold’s Imports ceramics, Jaccard Knives, and Lodge Cast Iron. And that’s only a sampling of the fabulous, well-made wares, not to mention a good selection of cookbooks, that are stocked at this nicely-done store. This is not a place you would come for discount items --- this is where the best cooks would look for the best products for the kitchen. Needless to say, it would also be a perfect place to find a classy wedding gift. There is also an amazing grilling/BBQ section, including Big Green Egg grills.
