Coinjock, NC.

Coinjock sounds like something you might get hanging out NEAR an islandy town by a place called Waterlily. It turns out it IS an island town by a place called Waterlily.

Mercifully, the origins of the town name do not sound itchy:

Residents suggest the name Coinjock is of Native American origin referring to mulberries, which might have been prevalent in the area many years ago. There are no mulberry trees there now.

Somebodyisfromhere.com likes how that was written. The first sentence was long and well written while not afraid to venture a descriptive image of a time past. The second bluntly derails.

Where is it?

It is located…about 20 miles (32 km) south of the Virginia state line, and is at mile marker 50 on the Intracoastal Waterway. The island to the east of Coinjock in the Currituck Sound has a village called Waterlily.

From the sounds of it Coinjock would also make a good location for the climax of a action film. Release the doves:

This island is also known as Church ‘s Island by locals because of a decayed church that was once a landmark
