Cape Carteret, NC Real Estate News

Well there is no question in my mind that the official beach season is open.  We had friends visiting us in Cape Carteret this past weekend.  I thought that I was going to have to carry them off the Emerald Isle beach on Sunday evening.The weather was so cooperative and the water had warmed to the point that it was nice enough to get any without a severe shock to the body.  I was only sorry we had not brought some beach chairs.This was the first time the weather was nice enough to make me want to take a nap in the sun.  I know our friends were dreading heading back to Boston since there were no leaves on the trees when they left much less strawberries in the fields.This is the time to come to the beach.
