Where did you live prior to Carteret County?

I understand your enthusiasm for the area completely! There's something about that place that just soothes the soul. Our primary home is 15 minutes from 2 very beautiful lakes, but being on the lake(s) is just not the same as the coast.

I've been visiting the EI/Atlantic Beach area since I was a child. My grandmother lived most of her life on Bridges St. in Morehead, and I still have some family in the area. My great-great grandfather was also a lighthouse keeper at Cape Lookout many years ago. So, I guess in a way it's like coming home for me when we visit now, and thus my reason for wanting to stay!

Here are a few pix I took in late October while boating to Hammocks Beach. The porpoise/dolphin followed us most of the way!
