Crystlal Coast

Time for the Best Kayaking and Fishing


For those who are not familiar with North Carolina's Crystal Coast, we have saved the best time of the year for you to come and visit with us.

The weathermen have laid out a forecast that calls for clearing this afternoon and a temperature of 70F.  For the 3rd of November I will take that forecast and run with it.

Every day in the seventies between now and March is pure victory and territory that we need to hold.  Last evening I went down to the sound to take some pictures, but they ended up far too gloomy to share.  They are definitely not candidates for my webpage where I favor blues and warm reds.  read more »
