Nags Head’s Roll and Stroll has become a great summertime tradition. Held the second Thursday of July annually, it’s a great introduction to the offbeat, high art and funky stores of the Gallery Row District of the town.
The 2016 version had a fair number of strollers about but probably not quite as many as last year—something about Outer Banks temperatures still hovering around 94 or 95 at 5:30 when the stroll began had something to do with it.
Nonetheless, it was great seeing some old friends in the galleries. Glenn Eure made an appearance at his Ghost Fleet Gallery. Glenn has had some health issues lately so ti was great to see him.
As usual he had a number of stories to tell, all of them sounding factual and real, none of them actually coming within a country mile of true.
There were a number of stores and galleries open along the Beach Road and as the sun set and the temperatures began to fall, a few more people did come out.
The Seagreen Gallery is a wonderful place to wander through and see how many what may be junk to one person can become art when a person with he right vision comes along.
As evening set out front there was a mesmerizing fire hula hoop demonstration—flames burning from four wicks, as the hoop spun it seemed like a solid streak of light.
Perfect for the evening.
