The Next Chapter Gary Lico and Annette Bergh Albemarle Plantation • Hertford, NC
Gary Lico and Annette Bergh both jumped from the Midwest to the big city when they started their careers. ;ey were
super-successful in their endeavors, and raised their children in
and around New York City. But, when their nest emptied, they
both knew that they’d want to build a nest of their own somewhere new, and altogether di;erent than the places they’d been.
Following extensive research, and considering the lifestyle
they wanted and would want to eventually welcome grandchildren into, they ;nally accepted a Discovery Tour invite from
the folks at Albemarle Plantation near Edenton, NC. ;ey were
Along the Inner Banks, in one of the South’s most romantic
areas, Edenton and the surrounding area is fairly well-known
for its charm. It was recently called a “dream town” by
Coastal Living and named the Best Small Town of 2017 by Atlanta
Gary and Annette settled into their new home in Albemarle
Plantation about two months ago, and they’ve got big plans to
enjoy where they are as much as possible.
While not yet retired, Gary has the luxury of a “FROG” – a
;nished room over the garage – where he works as a media dis-
tributor for the “Forensic Files,” the world-renowned series that
he helped to create in 1995.
In their free time, they plan to discover the Albemarle Sound
on kayaks, explore the Outer Banks and to hit the gym. Gary is
a fan of yoga, and Annette has discovered water aerobics.“It’s
kind of hilarious, but I love it,” Annette added.
;ey also intend to spend some time in Norfolk, just an hour
and a half north, where there’s a pretty active theatre community.
“Our son in Connecticut is a huge theatre bu;, so we wanted
to be somewhere we at least had access to it,” Annette said.
;e needlepoint and bocce ball clubs are on their “commu-
nity involvement” list, in addition to a lot more TGIF Happy
Hours at the community clubhouse.
