Hollywood House Recycling?

Being a good husband sometimes means seeing movies you might have otherwise avoided. Today, I took my wife to see the consumate chick-flick weeper, "Nights in Rodanthe." I won't give away the plot, but suffice it to say, it lives up (or down) to its reputation.

The action takes place mostly in Rodanthe, which is on Hatteras Island in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. When the main scene of the inn on the beach appeared, I nudged my wife and said, "That sure looks like the Weasley's house in the Harry Potter movies!" She gave me the "shut up and watch the movie, you unfeeling lump" look in response.

Anyway, I found a photo of the Weasley's house, which was called "The Burrow" in the Harry Potter movies, as well as a shot of the house used for "Nights in Rodanthe". One in the same? Well, the ocean is apparently encroaching further and further upon the Rodanthe house, and maybe it too is only held up by magic these days.

Good stuff. Maybe Aunt Minnie could recycle Medicexchange. Heads all rolled and all work was outsourced.
