To add to the beach parking thing.... most everyone that lives in St James will tell you that once you are living here... and on permanent vacation and just a 15 -20 minute drive to the beach...... they do not go to the beach as much as they thought they would... at least not for all day stays. People come and go at the beach place all day, it's very easy to just go over for an hour or two before or after lunch and go back again, so there are usually parking places that come and go, unless it is a very busy weekend like 4th of July as Texas Tim remarked. We have never seen parking to be a big problem.... in addition, down here, unlike in NJ and many other states up North.... access to the beaches all along Oak Island and adjacent parking at those beach access paths is plentiful, many St James people do not go all the way down to the beach house, they simply go onto the beach at one of the other many access paths..... in short, there are many other easy access paths, with parking, to the beach on Oak Island, one does not have to rely solely on the one at the St James beach house.

Used to read Cat Tails on the POA site and the new one requires a password. Is it now only for property owners?

I guess I understand but I thought that "publication" was a good selling tool for the "community" in general. Seems I would be in everyones best interest to promote St James in any way they can.

Heading to Southport this weekend to make the final call to purchase or build. I will spend a lot of time at Tommy's drinking and pondering my decision.

Good luck, PonyPride, and have a good trip this weekend. From your previous posts, I thought you had purchased a lot already and were going to build. Sounds like you're reconsidering?....For those of you who are currently in the building process at St. James, I'd appreciate any insights or opinions you can share with me. Did any of you attend the builder's expo last fall? If so, was it useful?.....And as for the POA website, I couldn't access it either!

Also tried to access POA website, with no luck. Sent a comment to POA about situation. They just switched over to the new website this weekend and are doing a final testing of the website now. An announcement is supposedly going out shortly with all logon and navigation instructions.

Enjoyed having an nice evening at the Marina with Stonecreek, TexasTim and our spouses. I will leave it to Stonecreek to describe the evening, because no one can tell a story better than himself. I am glad I was able to clear up the questions regarding my screen name. "PonyPride" has nothing to do with horses. I am a Mustang enthusiast and the nickname for a Mustang is a "Pony."

On the house front, we have decided to build and have chosen our builder. We are looking forward to start the building process in late September or early October. Every time we go to St. James we love it more and more. Friendships with people like Stone and Tim just make that positive experience even better.
