The Joys of Living by the Beach in Southern North Carolina

“For whatever we lose (like a  you or a me) it’s always ourselves we find in the sea.” Those beautiful words by E.E. Cummings explain the attraction we all have to the ocean. We spend our whole summers getting there as often as possible. Then fall weather comes and it’s “bye-bye” until next summer, which always seems an eternity away. Unless you live in North Carolina, that is! We have a summer that lasts from March until November and in between we have random warm beach days that come back out of the blue! It is something that brings northern blooded people to our coastline throughout the year. And speaking of our beautiful summer, It never gets too hot on the beach here in southeastern North Carolina. There is always a light breeze that makes you feel like it truly wants you to stay a while. The water is warm and the sand is soft and the only problem is deciding how far to stroll or how close to sit to the lapping waves. The warm ocean water is perfect for surfing or swimming with the dolphins and the Intracoastal Waterway just around the corner is calm enough for a kayaking  trip or long board paddle. Fishing on the shore or in the deep sea is a choice you can make daily. Do you want your cocktails by sunset or by moonlight on the many establishments that grace our shores? Or would you rather a picnic dinner that times itself perfectly with the dolphins passing by?  Sandcastles should be something that we all see on a daily basis.  No one can deny the peace that the ocean brings and the inspiration we feel when we see it, smell it, or feel it. 

Take a minute and imagine how different your days would be if you could walk on the beach every morning and spend evening sunsets with the ones you love.
