Went to the Beach Saturday. Air temp was low 90s and sunny. Water temp was low 80s:

Photos are my best Muscle Beach pose with surfboard, mom and kids playing in the waves, and kids in front of the pier. Kids are age 4 (girl) and 5 (boy). We're going back next Saturday::::

My Eyes!!!

The Blinding Whiteness! :

I love the North Carolina coast. I really miss warm water, what with the Pacific averaging in the mid-50s, its not very welcoming.

Hope you found a wave for that longboard.
That hot sand always got me walking to the tide-line fast.

Blinding whiteness is now screaming, itching redness:

I was able to sneak off away from the family to surf for about 30 minutes, but it was so crowded that I had to almost go to SOUTH Carolina to find the surfing flags I was never that good at surfing, but still enjoy it. The longer board is more forgiving

I see the boat from Antarctia has arrived!

I used to go to the Outer Banks or Hatteras area every Summer.

I was thinking the same thing.

I went on a scooter ride out to Red Rocks on Saturday with the scooter gang. I can't believe I forgot to put on sunscreen too. I've got the red farmer's tan now too.

Did you make it down to Calabash?

A little known fact: the daysailer has actually marched in the Azalea Festival Parade in Wilmington. The joys of Marching Band. :

LOL, my arms and legs make the board look tan:
I was in Jazz Ensemble and Wind Ensemble back in high school but got a pass out of marching band cause it was after school and was working at Buck Hill I did go on several other band related trips. Once we went to Florida and played at Sea World, Disney, etc.. It was a blast!

Haven't tried Calabash, been to Kure:, toying with trying Corolla if we decide to go for several says: (but I REALLY try to save my PTO for skiing)

Calabash is only about the fried seafood and Dinosaur Golf. I once shot a ball across the main drag there.:

No getting outta marching band. All the other siblings were required to join too. I was in the woodwinds and have since moved on to strings. Dr. Banjo had this idea of me combining the two.

Try Corolla sometime or Ocracoke. I have too many Ocracoke stories. Popular place to anchor for the sailor set. I think it many have become too touristy but hopefully the hurricanes took out some of those hideous looking joints.

I used to work for the North Carolina Division of Coastal Management. Needless to say, I've been everywhere along the NC coast.

I was helping with a professors seagrass study when she accidentally discovered Pfiesteria piscicida. I sometimes wonder if that was in the stuff that we hauled up off the bottom with our hands off Beaufort and put in the tanks at the Duke Marine Lab. That organism has really affected the East Coast estuaries. It wasn't too great on the people in that lab either. They are still suffering from the effects. It was really weird when a few years ago I had the TV on and suddenly saw a documentary of the whole thing on the Discovery Channel.
