Cape Fear Summer

Narrow barrier islands and sandy beaches, shallow waters and ocean inlets; salt marshes hugging the bay and maritime forests shaped by wind, sand, and salt...this is summer along the Cape Fear coast.

Dunes at Early Morning

The day is brisk
The air is sweet
The miles they pass
Beneath my feet
Slipper shells
And Angel wings
In an empty whelk
The ocean sings.

- Russell F. Flynn Jr.
