Beach Safety can reduce the loss of life. - 08/09/09 04:16 PM
The summer started off well with few rescues and no drownings. Sadly, that changed in the past couple weeks. Rip currents can happen any time and unexpectedly too. They are formed by normal wave action when the receding wave flow becomes concentrated in one place. Most often this is caused by a near shore sandbar. Sandbars can quickly form with normal wave and tide action. Most often these sandbars will top out just under the surface. As the waves and tides work a break in the bar may occur or the receding water may quickly wash over a low area of (3 comments)
The best time to SAVE on a vacation is NOW - 08/07/09 10:12 AM
Rental rates at the coastal Carolina beaches are down and this weekend is SALES TAX FREE! Not on the already low rental rates but on so much else. Spend your day at the beach and evenings at the malls and shops! Although North Carolina has not stated a figure but South Carolina estimates they will forego $3 million in sales tax. During the weekend, clothing, shoes, school supplies, computers and linens all will be tax-free. Most merchants have stocked up on product anticipating a busy weekend. The event has been suspended this year in some states, including Florida and Massachusetts. What could be better (2 comments)

Sunset Beach NC - changing forever - 08/05/09 01:04 AM
I am extremely fortunate to live in a great area of the country. The weather is fantastic all but a few days a year. Coming from the winters of the northeast that really says something. There are many fantastic beaches within minutes from my home. Even during the summer tourist season the beaches are not crowded like many others. Sunset Beach NC is a small island that did not become a town until about 40 years ago. The beach is wide and the white sand shimmers all year. The town is doing all it can to maintain the small town atmosphere, (0 comments)
Ocean Isle Beach NC - Maritime Museum - 08/01/09 11:09 AM
While my grandsons were visiting they wanted to do 'something with poppa' so we headed to the museum on the beach. What a great program they have and the 6 year old twins found it fantastic! We arrived around 3PM and began touring the museum. At 3:30 a program on beach safety was given. The children were very involved in the entire process, learning and having fun. NBext they went outside as the Ocean Isle Beach fire department brought a large truck. The boys and girls climbed all over it like a bunch of ants while being supervised by the firemen. (0 comments)
