Pirate Bean

Our family had the best time exploring Roanoke Island, known for it’s “Lost Colony”.  We got to explore a real 18th century ship.  Watch reinactments and learn by hands on workshops exactly what life was like during the time period when white settlers first met and traded with the native americans.  Bean 1 even got to take home a nail made by the blacksmith!  We also learned to make cordage, thatch longhouses, and make primitive fish traps!



The Coffeehouse on Roanoke Island

106 A Sir Walter Raleigh St.

Downtown Manteo, NC 27954

Of Course we’re never to busy to find the local coffee shop anywhere we visit.  Although this one wasn’t much to rave about.   Very small space and full of junk.  Worker was nowhere to be found the first 5 minutes we were standing in line.  But what they did have going for them was a full menu of very unique flavor options.  They also had a section in the back with checkers and chess.   Momma Bean had the Marshmallow Latte and Poppa Bean had the Mocha Mint.  Both were average drinks.  Dun, Dun, Dunnnnnnn!!!!!!!
