Bald Head Island

Waiting on the 3:30 ferry from Southport to Bald Head. The new Deep Point marina is amazing. It is located on the same road as the ferry to Fort Fisher. The price of the ferry ticket over, includes your tram ride to your rental home, tram ride on the day of departure, and the ferry ride back to Southport.
Levi doing what he does best....digging a huge hole to play in.
The point where South Beach meets East Beach.
Our villas in the background. They are across the street, nothing is on the ocean front in this area.
Our mode of transportation for the week. Riding around in golf carts is so relaxing and quiet. When you come to an intersection it is quite funny because there is complete silence, and then people will say "you go ahead". All the roads are just wide enough for a golf cart to get by, and the parking spaces are golf cart sized. There were always kids out riding bikes or skateboarding. This place is a skateboarders paradise.

I love the pictures and the idea of not having to load up in the car to go somewhere! In the third picture the sky looks very dark. Were the buddies asleep or just pretending to be?

What a great beach! LOVE LOVE that hole that Levi dug out!!

Sorry I haven't been around. I hope you are having a wonderful summer. I'll try to catch up and see what you have been up too :)

They were asleep, but when we stopped to take the pic S woke up. You can see his smirk, lol. The point pic shows a storm that was moving away from the island.

It sounds like a really relaxing place! It looks like the buddies were tired from all that fun! It would be weird to be someplace there are no cars.

That is one big hole. How cool! I want to dig now too.
I love the golf carts. I have a dream to retire in a golf cart community one day!
