2017 September - Avon NC
Blog Under Construction
1st stop, Edwin & Sandy's in Virginia. Praying Mantis.
When we arrived (Sept 17) the surf was pretty vigorous.
Possibly as a result of hurricanes Irma or Jose?
Footage of waves here, but the audio part is from later in the week when the wind was hardly blowing (the waves were smaller too).
3 days later.
Someone said this was fairly recent damage, just a few houses down.
House location: 35.345757, -75.502096
Green Tree Frog by the pool at the Mariner's Light.
The next picture is for scale, 1-7/8" diameter pool hose.
I think this is a Willet.
Eventually I'll post some beach-bird video.
Willet and Sanderling
On the Avon Pier. Ruddy Turnstone?
As yet unidentified skipper on Blanket Flower.
A different skipper. Oughta be able to ID this one.
That ubiquitous Mockingbird
Now some people-pictures.
Pete on the pier.
My first ever time surfing.
This was Friday 22, and the waves were back in strength, enough to knock you over.
Thanks Laura Marlow for cool photo and video!
Jeff, Trish and Scott on the boardwalk, haircutting, wine-tasting.
Tricia did some great enhancing of the group shot.
High water and our first traffic jam on the way home, still on Hatteras Island.
