It has been another exceptional fall here on North Carolina's Crystal Coast. The weather is has been nearly perfect and the fishing exceptional. Even the gardens are still growing and the winds and water from Mathew's brush with the coast are just memories here while others are still dealing with the impacts of serve flooding. It will not be long before the annual seasonal reversal when the beach areas go from being the cooler part of the area to being the warmer part.
Soon a special kind of peace will descend on the salt marshes and we will be ready for the quiet that comes with the holidays on the coast.

After a cool spring, summer's warmth has found the Crystal Coast. Visitors have been quick to find our beautiful beaches. We had some great crowds on Memorial Day weekend and my beach walk have shown me that people are having fun here on Emerald Isle's beaches. I just did a couple of walks up at one of Emerald Isle's lesser know beaches. Read about it in the 2016 version of our book, The Emerald Isle Travel Guide - A Week at the Beach, or get a taste of it and the Atlantic Ocean in my blog post, Last Parking Place at Third Street. You can also enjoy these shots of the waves and beach at this online album.
