Feels like Fall on the Coast


Last night while I was working in my office, I opened the windows.  The humidity had disappeared from the air.  As my wife said, September seemed to flip the page of the weather calendar this year.

I tried to sleep with my bedroom window open, but the frogs were still celebrating the 8.3 inches of rain so I had to close the window at about 3 AM.

This morning our front porch weather sensor which you can see by going to the link, clicking "Member Data," and viewing the Bluewater Cove point near "Camp Lejeune" was reading 65 degrees Fahrenheit.

That is actually pretty cool for the Crystal Coast in early September.  Unfortunately there is some even cooler weather building up to the far north.  Edmonton, Alberta is showing 36F this morning, and my friends in Montana are looking at 35F.

The good news is that we are supposed to warm up as the week moves toward the weekend.

We will be back in the middle eighties by the weekend, and it looks like we will remain dry.  read more »

Why I Love Cannonsgate on Bogue Sound


Cannonsgate on Bogue Sound, a beautiful gated community which is located right on the Intracoastal Waterway is a unique place to live. It has a 75 slip marina, gorgeous Charleston style clubhouse, walking trails, pool, tennis courts, putting green, natural areas, lakes, and a community postal center. For the boating enthusiast, it is a most desirable place to live. One can go out of the marina and travel by boat up and down the Eastern coastline! The grounds are immaculately groomed, and the views of Bogue Sound are exquisite, especially at sunrise and sunset.  read more »
