Stubborn flooding on Coast Guard Road

Ida's water are being persistent here on the coast.  There are still plenty of flooded spots still around and drainage ditches remain full to the brim.

This afternoon we headed over to the Emerald Isle Post Office.  On the way back, I decided to explore Coast Guard Road where reports had indicated some flooding.

We were barely past the Pebble beach entrance when we ended up driving in axle deep water.

Just a little farther down the road, I snapped this picture of the wake of a school bus.

We turned around at the back Land's End gate.  I know there was more flooding closer to the Point, but my wife was not interested in driving around in flood waters on Friday the thirteenth.
