Summer is still with us on the Southern Outer Banks

The summer of 2013 has been spectacular along the strand of sand that stretches from Ocracoke Island through Carteret County.  For more details click the link or the picture. #SOBX http://ow.ly/nK74N

The Right Spot For Your July 4 Week At The Beach

There are plenty of places you can go to find crowds on the beach and a hectic beach vacation.  If you want to relax and enjoy reconnecting to the natural world, maybe you should visit the Crystal Coast where the beaches are family friendly and the crowds have room to spread out.  Check out this link for more information or click on the beach picture.

A Quick Boat Ride Into The Marshes

Boating the week of the Fourth of July is a tradition on the Crystal Coast, but sometimes the tides and winds don’t cooperate. I produced this video for my friends who need a little taste of the water to keep them going.   This video was taken as I crossed the Intracoastal Waterway and traveled back into the marshes by way to the channel that runs behind Huggins Island.  You can see the area of the trip in the loop on this map.  It is an exceptionally beautiful area where I always see some Great Egrets.
