This summer has been busy and I’ve not been able to ride as much as I’d like. Between kayak tours and my regular job, I’ve been working a lot! I’ve also been letting a couple of my daughter’s friends come over and ride as well. They’re homeschooled, and great kids. I have gotten a couple… Continue reading Just some beautiful riding pictures…
Summer is in full swing here on the island. The tourists are out in full force. Houses are rented, Food Lion (the only chain grocery store on the island) is a madhouse, and the beach is packed. Those pictures I posted this winter of miles of empty beach are no more. There are trucks parked… Continue reading Summertime on the sandbar…
When it’s 70 degrees in mid December and you live on an island, you go kayaking! My son and I got the kayak out for a quick trip in the Pamlico Sound this weekend. We have some friends with a soundfront house and they are kind enough to let us use their dock. It’s just… Continue reading December Kayaking Adventure
I am especially thankful this Thanksgiving. We’ve been in our new home on Hatteras Island for almost 2 months. When I was trying to talk my husband into making this move, there was an unspoken fear inside of me that I would go through all the hassle and expense of moving, uprooting my life and… Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving!
The Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum is nestled between the ocean on one side and the ferry dock on the other at the southern end of Hatteras Island. I wanted to take my kids since we live here now. I grew up in Hatteras, and I’m very proud of the fascinating history of the Outer… Continue reading Visiting the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum
On Saturday morning my brother and I did an early morning paddle in the sound from my house to his house, about 3 miles. We could hear the surf pounding in the ocean, but the sound was slick calm and glassy. Even at the end of October, the temperature was in the 70’s and it… Continue reading Paddleboarding Hatteras
Well, it’s official! We are full time residents of Hatteras Island, NC. I grew up here, lived in Atlanta for 14 years, and finally succeeded in moving my family back to my hometown. Thank God for the internet that allows us to have city jobs at the beach! My parents and my brother and his… Continue reading We moved to Hatteras!
If you read this blog or know me at all, you know that I haven’t been very happy living in Georgia. I tried to make the best of it, and I embraced the north Georgia mountains and all the activities they offer, but I always felt out of place here. My house in the suburbs… Continue reading I have big news.
I grew up on Hatteras Island, North Carolina, part of the Outer Banks. When I was a kid, all the locals surfed and the French Canadian tourists windsurfed. I can’t remember seeing many kayaks. Windsurfing has been replaced by kite boarding, and kayaking has gotten huge. My parents live on an inland waterway and every… Continue reading Kayaking in Cape Hatteras
