It's a bit overcast today, and not quite as humid.  My fishing friend said that this was a good day for the fish to be biting.  When I asked him if it made a difference whether or not there was a drizzle he pointed out that the fish didn't care because they were already wet.

My neighbor and I have just started riding bicycles together.  Rode Oak Island about 17 miles total yesterday and enjoyed stopping by my cousin's house on Davis Canal and having an energy and water recharge in the middle of the ride.  My husband went out and rode with the "big boys" about 45 mile...

This summer has been a very slow season for our hummingbirds.  Usually we have them buzzing all around our back deck area.  Is anyone else having the same problem with their hummingbirds?  WE have the  same mixture that is normal for us...so I do not know what the problem is. If you have any hint...

I've had 5 straight great days on the bicycle, and no soreness now, almost 3 months after the fractures!  It's hard not to feel great riding by and across the Intracoastal Waterway or by the Oak Island Lighthouse at Caswell Beach.  All you have to do to see the ocean is to glance over at the righ...

You know, since I have been a realtor, we have gone from 1 page for a  listing and 1 page for a offer to purchase...to about total pages of around 15 pages.  Don't that seem like a waste of trees. Our state of NC has just revised the forms and we are having a webinar on that today. Would love to ...

WE have been dealing with this for a couple of years now...(thinking of 2005). WE had folks buying up lots on Oak Island for $220,000 and now their worth is only about $65,000.  I am finding it difficult to tell a buyer that they can only get $65,000 for a lot that they paid $220,000.  I think th...

Oak Island - The Town of Oak Island was formed in 1999 when the towns of Long Beach and Yaupon Beach consolidated.
