Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. May 7, 2012.

Betsy and I returned home on Saturday from a week at the beach.  We went to one of our favorite places, Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina.

One advantage of going in early May is that we often have the beach almost to ourselves, so we can lose ourselves in the beauty  of this wonderful spot.

The weather was just about perfect.  We had some rain early one evening, but other than that we had blue skies and sunshine.  But even so, the ocean was never the same on any two days.  It seems to constantly change, but be constantly beautiful at the same time.

Even glimpses of the water and beach through the dune grass was fascinating.

We stayed at the Islander Inn, which is right on the beach as can be seen from this satellite image from Google Maps.  All in all it was a wonderful vacation.

    Looks a pretty tranquil place in May. I bet in the summer months that the pier is popular with the young and not so young ones for jumping and diving off.
    Piers are a rarity here in Australia on beaches, certainly none in Sydney or on the Gold and Sunshine Coast beaches.
    They have them in Melbourne in the Bay area and I have also seen them in Adelaide in the Gulf area.
    Great to know that you had a peaceful break.
    Cheers
    Colin
