Where has the Summer Gone??
To begin with I must apologize for disappearing this summer. Summer time is always a busy time of year here on Topsail Island. This summer has been no exception.
Tourists have arrived in swarms it seems. Keeping the shops and stores busy. It makes our work days longer with little time off. That is great for the local economy that relies so much on these few short months to survive all year.
Todays Thoughts: A Sunday in June
This morning, a June Sunday morning, I woke to the sunrise. I headed for the beach early before the crowd would become to arrive. The tide was low, the sun was heating up already. It is going to be a hot one today. There is a slight cooling breeze off the ocean helping the beach feel comfortable at the moment.
