When the body is aching and the soul needs a lift in spirit, what do we crave and search for? A massage is the perfect remedy in my mind … and somehow we managed to stumble across David Henderson (http://outerbanksmassage.com) here on the Outer Banks. David is a therapist gifted with the touch of grace and restoration, not only accepting the path of his art and skill with dedication and joy, but also managing to instil a gift of healing when performing his bodywork — which for us included hot stones to complement his deep-tissue technique. This being the second of our massages this week, I truly believe that my knee is in a much better state of health right now because of the time and work he has put in to stretching the fascia, ligaments and muscles surrounding my injured knee.
We couldn’t recommend David more highly. Not only does he have a brilliant practice, magical green space and a fabulous music library, but both his sense of humour and ability to intuitively listen with his hands places David within the top 3 on my list of favourite therapists ever! Pretty high praise for seasoned massage recipients (does that make us connoisseurs?) like uS ;), who have travelled the globe in search of supreme healing bodywork.
To top the day off, we were introduced to the prime top secret feeding hole of the Outer Banks. So if you’re lucky enough to be reading this blog and to have the opportunity to visit Kill Devil Hills in the future, you’ll be thanking me for letting you in on this hidden gem frequented mostly by the locals (Thursday Fish Taco Night is a local favourite). Food Dudes is THE place to come for delectable casual seafood divinity. slaDE~ and I shared a seafood tomato bisque for a starter, a chicken pesto goat cheese wrap accompanied by yummy tortilla chips and avocado pesto, and paired that with a blackened tuna and crab (with a side of yummy rice and beans) entree.
