Sea Turtle Adventures at Sunset Beach

One magnificent aspect of spending time by the ocean is the daily encounters you have with the many beautiful creatures who call our North Carolina coastline home. I recently received a wonderful reminder of this from two of our former guests, Richie and Diane, who loved their time at Sunset Beach Bliss so much they came back to build their own "bliss" and settle down nearby as permanent residents. I discovered that Richie and Diane volunteer with the Sunset Beach Turtle Watch Program that is so active on our beaches, and they generously took the time to share their experiences (and these great photos) with me. And so I thought I would pass them along to our readers.

Ocean Isle in October: Where the World Is Your Oyster!

Well, the Summer is more than halfway through, and so it's time to start making plans for your beach vacation in the Fall! North Carolina has the mild climate that draws folks to the coast all year round. A great October week to aim for is when Brunswick county sponsors their Annual Oyster Festival in neighboring Ocean Isle. This year, it will be the weekend of October 19th, all day Saturday and Sunday. As always, organizers have included attractions and activities to appeal to all ages; so the kids can enjoy themselves just as much as the adults.
