Join the Friends of Jockey’s Ridge for a Celebration of Carolista Baum’s Birthday! “She saved our sand dune!” On a summer morning in 1973, Carolista’s children were playing on the dunes.

I posted a question on our Facebook page the other day asking for help in choosing a blog topic. It is August, and my brain is tired, so I wanted suggestions on what to write about. And I got them, a lot of them.

Whew...August is here. One thing those of us who live here know for sure is that summer creeps in and then flies by. Really fast. Probably just like your vacation week seems to you.  From mid July to mid August, we are either at 100% occupancy or very close to it.

During the summer season, many of our restaurants stay busy. So busy that you may sometimes have to wait to be seated. The wait staff is working hard to get you seated, get your order in...the kitchen help is cooking, broiling, frying and prepping. Busy Busy Busy.
