Emerald Isle NC. What a lovely place. I had the opportunity to visit the area with a good friend and we had a wonderful time. Photos from our evening stroll on the beach with a few quotes about the area...
"Emerald Isle greets Crystal Coast visitors at the western end of Bogue Banks, offering 5 miles of pristine shoreline and incredible views of the Atlantic Ocean and Bogue Inlet."
"Emerald Isle is a town in Carteret County, NC. It is part of the Crystal Coast and is located entirely on the Bogue Banks. The Bogue Inlet Fishing Pier, located on the western end of the
Bogue Banks is one of the only fishing piers left on the island."
The sky and the sea were beautiful at sunset....
The items not on sale. All on display and easy to find....
"Emerald Isle is a popular vacation spot and is also known for excellent fishing and a wealth of marine life. Notably its beaches are a favorite location for nesting sea turtles."
We did not see any sea turtles but we saw some beautiful birds. I was thankful we did not see any sharks.
"When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out
with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise, and imposes a rhythm upon
everything in me that is bewildered and confused."
Rainer MariaI really like the quote by Rainer. I agree....
"There is something soothing about a calm day at the beach. The sound of the waves and the sea birds. The gentle breeze and the feel of the soft sand on bare feet."
We had a great evening on the beach.
I can't wait to go back.
Life is an adventure. Get out and explore.
