The Balancing Act With Rain

We finished June and started July with lots of rain which was much needed.  June brought us almost nine inches of rain and we got another couple of inches the first two days of July. That is a lot of rain in a short time.

Fortunately the rest of the week of the 4th of July has turned out great.  We always hope our visitors will have wonderful weather for their vacations and once again it has happened.

However, it is a balancing act when it comes to rain.  We have lots of farmers in the area in addition to plenty of residents who grow many of their own vegetables. I like to say that we try to schedule the rain at night but it rained much of the last weekend of June.

It is great when we can have weather that pleases almost everyone.  It has been perfect beach weather since the rain early in the week.

I had a great hike early in the week over at the Point.  I have been out in my skiff and taken three or four trips in my kayak.

Even with the perfect weather there is plenty of space on the beach for everyone and lots of room on the river for kayaking.

You can see lots of pictures of all of the this at my Google+  Crystal Coast Life Community or for a synopsis of everything visit my Southern Outer Banks site.
