100% Beach Weekend!
The clear water provided great snorkeling conditions, and Lauren and I made another trek out to the wreck, this time with my camera. There is one small section of the ship which remains above the sand. Too bad it is basically covered, since we have had great visibility recently to snorkel the wreck. The ship sits in about 10 ft of water on the outer sand bar. During the paddle out to the wreck, there were swarms of balloon jellyfish! I was unsure about swimming amongst the jellies, but a local spear fisherman noted that they are basically harmless.
In addition to the snorkeling, I was also the instructor for Lauren's two nieces and nephew for their first surfing lessons. Her youngest niece was a natural, and who knows, perhaps a future birthday or Christmas gift may be a new surfboard?!
All in all, another perfect summer time beach weekend on the OBX! There was some leftover swell from last week's low pressure, but I believe it was better caught on the southern beaches, as compared to Nags Head.
All eyes are now on TS Fay, and where she will end up late this week. Hopefully, the windsurfing gear will be wet by Friday?!
