Did you get anything from the Northern Lights Bakery, in the Corolla Light shopping center, essentially across from the lighthouse? Very neighborly (un-touristy), with delicious donuts--much tastier than Duck Donuts :)
No - I don't even remember seeing a shopping center :( We stopped at one south of there (the one with the DogNutz store).I think we had Duck Donuts twice. They were pretty good!
But you did a good job of it!
