THE WALL THAT HEALS - Posted By: EveT on 12/5/2023
For months I anticipated visiting The Wall That Heals, the 3/4 traveling replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C., that I visited nearly 30 years ago. My schedule the few days it was here meant my best chance to go would be at night. Nighttime was perfect for what I wanted to do there, and how I anticipated I would feel. As I have written here before, I wanted to once again fin... [Read Full Post]

For us northern Pa. fishermen who look forward to our 1-2 annual trips (over the last 35 years plus) , and can't wait until May 5, 2024 we start wondering how the local surf fishermen are doing at this time of year! Very little to nothing is found on this site. We usually stay in South Nags Head and fish surf, marina and bridge access points ( I will be 789 years old when I hit the beach ... [Read Full Post]

Just had HVAC company come for buy bi-yearly tune up. Serviceman found the heater kit operating at half capacity due to a failed fuse. What does that mean? The cost will be close to $600.00 to repair. I have heard that the salt air is hard equipment, but I had a new system installed 6-7 years ago. Anyone have advice? Thank you.

I counted about 20 boats off the shore tonight. I have heard folks say they are shrimp boats. Are they all fishing / netting for shrimp? Or is there something else out there? Thanks,

DAJIO - A must stop every time on Ocracoke
Food is always fresh and fantastic. Owners are very friendly and personable.

We discovered TSBC five - six years ago and made sure we had reservations before we would come down on vacation. Now that we live here (less than 4 minutes from TSBC), we go a least once a month and sometimes twice. Between my wife and I, I think we've kind of tried everything on the menu although they are constantly changing/modifying/tweaking their recipes. We've never even had an 'OK' meal...

BLUE MOON BEACH GRILL - Back to the Blue Moon
My Better Half and I stopped for lunch on a windy, overcast day. The remodeling they've done since we were last there (created a "waiting bar", added a game room, and outdoor dining) were welcome I recall the large crowds inside and outside while waiting for a table before). Even though it was at lunch, there was a small wait... we saw that as a good thing. Sat at the bar in the main area and had... [Read Full Review]

MAKO MIKES, INC. - Mediocre At Best
We recently ate here for the first time and we won't be back. The service was excellent, so I kinda feel sorry for the servers. We both got shrimp that was utterly tasteless and kind of mushy. Frozen shrimp can be done better. Fries were OK, iced tea was godawful.

DAJIO - Very nice restaurant
I had a fish sandwich and my wife had Pesto Pasta, couldn't have been better. The staff was great also. We'll be back for sure

Live streaming video of the surf from Jennette's Pier, located in Nags Head, NC. this is a great Outer Banks webcam and shows why the OBX is a great vacation spot!

A great streaming webcam from Corolla Light in the northern part of the Outer Banks. This is a full motion video feed with a very clear picture of the beach and the surf.

Th Wright Memorial Bridge webcam on 158 in Kitty Hawk. Facing West, you can see the traffic entering the Outer Banks on this NCDOT webcam. The image is updated every minute.

Nice webcam view of the beach and pool deck from the Hilton Head Beach & Tennis Resort on the north end of HHI. It may take a few seconds to load, but it is worth the wait for the clear view of the beach and ocean. This webcam is a great way to see the beach on Hilton Head Island when you can't be there in person.
