On January 18th at 11:00 a.m., Serendipity, the home featured in the 2008 movie “Nights in Rodanthe” made its move along NC Highway 12 to its new home, approximately 1/2 mile south on Beacon Street. The move took about 30 minutes, and the highway was blocked off to traffic going north and south.
A large group of onlookers were gathered around the house as it slowly made its way down NC Highway 12, taking photos, in what resembled a large parade. The move was successful, and workers will spend the rest of the afternoon placing it securely in its new location.
“Hard to believe that we still have humming birds in January. John faithfully feeds them (sugar water) each morning and despite the COLD weather they come to feed. We think it’s a family,” says Susan Baust of Surf or Sound Realty. Photo by John Baust.
