Summer Storms

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

With Issac heading for the Gulf Coast, I found it fitting to post a couple pictures of a storm I had the pleasure of watching this past summer as well as a video of the approaching lightning. Although I don't recommend being out in the water during a storm, it is thrilling to watch the clouds grow into an ominous mass.

Rich's Inlet & Lee's Island

Wednesday, August 1, 2012

I haven't been to Rich's Inlet in years.  Masonboro and Mason's Inlet's are closer, and with the shells plentiful at Masonboro and the tropical, clear water at Mason's, I haven't had a reason.  So I made a reason up.  Low tide was late in the day, but it had been a brutal week, so I headed south for about an hour of quick shelling.  I think there may be some awesome shells on this barrier island!  Here's what I found:  coral, moonstones, a shark tooth, and two keyhole limpets (one of my favorite shells to find).  Quick success feels just as good as a full day scouring the beach.  :)


After all these storms recently, I can't wait to get back out there and see what they washed ashore! And, it's Loggerhead hatching season.  How exciting!
