Lone Cedar Fire

A very sad day for all of us on the Outer Banks. Lone Cedar was a favorite for the food and the service. The fire is a tragedy for the Basnight family that is suffering already. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them and to all the Lone Cedar family. I am sure they will rebuild. Lets just hope that its soon.
