The Point at Emerald Isle gets a makeover


Just when we thought that Hurricane Bill might not have changed much in the area, we heard some reports the sand over at the Point on Emerald Isle had been remodeled.

We made a quick trip over early this afternoon to check it out.  It has definitely changed.  This area shown by one of my photos in Panoramio is mostly under water now.  read more »

The state of the beach


Hurricane Bill has been in the news a lot.  We watched some swells building earlier in the week.  Last night we went over to the beach for a walk.

We wanted to see if the high water and potentially heavy surf from Bill had made any changes to the beach.

Of course the beach changes even with regular surf so I guess you could say that we were just checking on the state of the beach.

There were very few people at the Eastern Regional Access as we continued up the beach.  My favorite beach is the nearly invisible Third Street Beach.

Back to the beach


It felt great to stick my toes in the salt water once again this afternoon.  It was almost a week since the last time, and that is far too long in my book.

Missing the bridge

It has been a few days since I crossed the Cameron Langston Bridge to Emerald Isle.  I am looking forward to getting back on it.

It is one of my favorite spots on the Southern Outer Banks.  The view from the top is beautiful and dangerous.  Many tourists get caught up in the view and end up running into the car in front of them.

A Week of Great Beach Weather


Sometimes you just cannot take the time to sit in front of a computer and write.  The weather is too perfect.  This past week was just such a week.

While we saw some hot temperatures, those toasty temperatures made the ocean water feel just about right.  We were certainly not the only people who figured this out.

Some of the beach parking areas were as full as they have been all summer.

Yesterday we sneaked in one last trip to the beach before the weather change.  read more »

Expect Heat


Yesterday evening over at the beach was really nice.  The air seemed to change.  The moon was out later, and there were no clouds in the sky to obstruct the view.

Last night the weathermen all seemed to be on the same page.  We should expect the heat to build into the weekend.  Today they are calling for inland temperatures in the mid-nineties and coastal temperatures in the upper eighties.

It is August, and we are in North Carolina so heat does not come as a surprise.
