Full Spring Ahead
The mid-April mindset is upon us, and it’s time to start preparing for perfect Hatteras Island beach days ahead. Spring on the Outer Banks is an exciting time for all creatures who have experienced it before. The local people (as well as animals) are coming out of hibernation, and beginning to work on their leather skin.
I like to walk around with bare feet as much as possible before surfaces really start to heat up on Hatteras Island. Building a base for my “summer feet” will prove important on those days we find ourselves sprinting to the Ocean like a desert-dwelling lizard skimming across the sand. As miserable as that may sound, I actually can’t wait!
Along with locals coming out of hibernation, we also see people (and animals) returning for seasonal pleasures and perks. The birds are flying back from their deep South Winter retreats. And the roads are starting to fill up with different colored license plates. Even our beloved Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is opening its doors to the public!
The past few days have been absolutely beautiful, and the Yellow-belly Sliders have been taking full advantage of the morning Sun angle to recharge their cold batteries. To me, these images represent how all creatures feel about Spring/Summer on the Outer Banks. Enjoying sunshine and swimming with family and friends in one of the most beautiful places in the World.
