Three Reasons Why I Love Calling North Carolina Home

Three Reasons Why I Love Calling North Carolina Home:Mother's Day 2013 - Daniel Stow Gardens Dianne 027

(from 100 North Carolina Icons written by Michael Graff for Our State Magazine)

Calabash Seafood – Just inside the state line, the Seafood Capital of the World is right here in N.C.

Daniel Boone – When the most famous frontiersman of all time married and settled down in Rowan County, Boone said, “All you need for happiness is a good gun, a good horse, and a good wife.”

Brown Mountain Lights – Burke County’s unexplained lights still show at random times, especially in the fall, leaving us in the glow of the mystery.


And that is three reasons why I love the State I am in!

  1. I think this calabash food history is so interesting. Since Calabash, NC was named after gourds that grew in the region, which were used for drinking and then the meeting of the fishermen on the dock and creating communal meals since the 1930s. Now Calabash is known for its distinctive style of fried seafood, which has come to be known as “calabash style”…………..all this with the beginnings of a simple gourd.
