Rodanthe (OBX) Jug Handle 63% complete

The bridge that's redefining Rodanthe is more than halfway complete. Kiting looks completely off the menu but windsurfers and wings should be able to slide under and out.

Gloomy but realistic article about Avon: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/14/climate/outer-banks-tax-climate-change.html

Short version - enjoy your stays there. They are about to get more expensive and the long-term outlooks is grim for it to remain habitable.

Anyone who has been visiting the Outer Banks for any length of time could see the writing on the wall. It’s a big moving sandbar sticking 20+ miles out in to the ocean. Someday it will be another Ocracoke island. So for the New York Times to frame this as a global warming issue is laughable (but predictable). We could kill all fossil fuels, turn off all air conditioning, capture all cow farts, trade in our gas cars for wind powered golf carts tomorrow, and Hatteras island will still be dealing with the same issues.

But, as you implied, enjoy it while you can. I know I will be.
