A Sunday Side Trip to Atlantic Beach


Yesterday was another pleasant day on the Crystal Coast.  One of the great advantages of living here is that it is not very far to other parts of the Crystal Coast.

We can be in Beaufort in 35 minutes, Morehead City in 20minutes, and Atlantic Beach in 25 minutes.

After church, lunch, and watching a little football on the backsides of my eyelids, I decided that we needed to get out and enjoy the great beach weather.

My wife, who had been diligently clipping coupons to take advantage of the Morehead City Harris Teeter's triple coupons, agreed as long as I would drop by the grocery store on the way back.

Just in case things looked fishy I stuck my trout fishing gear in the back of the car, grabbed a couple of cameras, and we were off.

The high rise bridge in Atlantic Beach is always a treat to drive over.  Yesterday I was surprised to see how few boats were on the water, and then I remembered about the boat races in the harbor.

Almost Water Time


Friday March 6 was one of the nicest days that we have seen in a while.  The day started warm and stayed warm except for the breeze (wind) that kicked up early in the day.  Without the wind it would have been a wonderful day.

The water and the sky were blue as you can see from the picture taken looking east up the Intracoastal from South Water Street in Swansboro.  read more »
