Equilibrium On The River


Big coastal rivers always have a mind of their own.  The White Oak River near our home is no exception.  While I can make some educated guesses as to what its mood is by using the telephoto lens on my favorite camera,  I never know what is really happening until I get out on it with either my skiff or kayak.  When you factor in the riddle of coastal weather,  things can get interesting on the river.  read more »

The Balancing Act With Rain


We finished June and started July with lots of rain which was much needed.  June brought us almost nine inches of rain and we got another couple of inches the first two days of July. That is a lot of rain in a short time.

Fortunately the rest of the week of the 4th of July has turned out great.  We always hope our visitors will have wonderful weather for their vacations and once again it has happened.

However, it is a balancing act when it comes to rain.  We have lots of farmers in the area in addition to plenty of residents who grow many of their own vegetables. I like to say that we try to schedule the rain at night but it rained much of the last weekend of June.

It is great when we can have weather that pleases almost everyone.  It has been perfect beach weather since the rain early in the week.
