  1. I am so excited. I have never heard of Nicholas Spraks before. We were at Ocracoke for a week and went by the house while they were filming the movie. I found out what was going on. Bought the book read it 2 times. Hooked on him now. My birthday is 9-26, so we are going to do dinner and movie. Can't wait. My blog has a article about the movie also.

  2. Are we so lucky that Ike did not come ripping up toward us like poor Gulf tonight. The Outer Banks missed a strong one. And I thank God for that.

  3. Its a Romantic Drama starring with Adrienne Willis (Diane Lane) and Dr. Paul Flanner (Richard Gere). Its based on a Nicholas Sparks novel. Really its awesome. I saw it 2 times in theater and now I have a link to watch it at home. You can also watch this at home. So go ahead and get it now. Download Nights in Rodanthe Movie free from here.
