Great evening for Emerald Isle Beach Jive after Five


As soon as we started walking through the parking lot of the Islander over on Emerald Isle this afternoon, we noticed some live music coming from next door.  It turned out to be the Emerald Isle Beach Jive after Five. 

We got there after the band started playing but the Emerald Isle website lists the band as the Conch Stew.  We were attending attending a "Business after hours" Chamber of Commerce event next door at the Islander so I could not devote full attention to the band.  read more »

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 »
