Mattamuskeet at Christmas-Place to stay

If you go to Hyde-Away and it's cold, make sure they turn the heat on
before you get there.

The last time I did a late night check in there, I thought we'd die
before the temp crawled above 45. Thank God they had a bar.

The location is great though if you want the pocosins (Mattamuskeet,
New, and Pungo Lakes). I especially like Pungo. Don't figure on hitting
Outer Banks on same day though. You'll spend your day in traffic or on
ferries. Do your ferry birding on the way down or on the way home.
