NOT MANY HERE - WHY ? - Posted By: Tim-OBX on 9/19/2018
One topic at our office lately is the lack of people here that came to vacation after the storm has past us and the evacuation was lifted. I was speaking with a reservationist from another PM company yesterday and she said many have called them saying they canceled and are not coming because the news is saying the roads are flooded and impassable. While this might be true in the Wilmington/Lumbert... [Read Full Post]

TUESDAY 9/18 ON THE OBX. - Posted By: JimmyZ on 9/19/2018
Well it was finally a nice sunny day for a change. The temp was 87 and humid. The ocean is calming down and clearing up. The winds were from the SW and biting flies were annoying on the beach. I also collected a pocketful of sea glass. A little side note. I met an elderly gentleman on the beach with two young grandsons and his son. We got to talking and had the normal do you live here or ... [Read Full Post]

TURTLE NESTS - Posted By: Merry on 9/18/2018
They just had black tarped a turtle nest on the beach in front of the Durant Station area Friday 9/8. And that’s just a short distance south of where the overwash occurred on 9/13. Do the turtle nests survive?

MANTEO IS FLOODING - Posted By: Tim-OBX on 9/18/2018
I just was talking to a friend on the Ham radio who lives in Heritage point and he is worried the sound will flood his house soon! WHAT?? I have not heard a word. He said surely Manteo streets are under water and so I tuned to the Manteo waterfront cam and sure enough, water on the street. He says it is just water coming down the sound from the inland rivers. WHO KNEW???

My brother and his wife took us here for our 45th Anniversary last night. The She Crab Bisque was excellent. I had the Shrimp and Crabcake Combo - delicious.

OCEANA'S BISTRO - 1st time trying
We have been to Avon for many years and have never had the opportunity to come here. We arrived at 630 on a Friday evening and had to wait 20 mins for our table.

Grilled Flounder and a bacon cheeseburger rounded out our orders.... [Read Full Review]
