As I drove around this morning no damage to speak of at all, the flooding at the Polly Gully bridge has already subsided, a few trees down here and there, a lot of pine needles and "small" branches littering the streets but we never lost power or cable at all (at least in the Reserve), the waterfront in Southport had some significant damage from flooding as expected.

We had heard the Oak Island Pier had collapsed.

A section of one of the Piers on Oak Island did collapse..... from her post I assumed she was referring to St James as that is where her lot is.

There were pictures of the Beach Club on the St James Plantation People FB page. It looked like just flooding around the parking lot.

I have a question about the clubs. The Reserve has always been open for members only, but the other clubs were available for property owners to dine. I know there was talk on making all the clubs members only. Has that taken place yet and if so is Tommy's the only place on the plantation for non members to dine?

Arriving Friday for preview weekend and Parade of Homes. Suggestions on where we should eat Friday and Saturday evening? Suggestions on what we should see and do outside our home search?
We are starting in Ocean Isle Friday morning and will work our way to Wilmington on Sunday.

It's a big weekend for my wife and I as we make final decisions on where we hang our hat during retirement. We started the process of finding our retirement destination earlier this year and expect to make our decision in 2017.

Regarding the clubs and restaurants.... it was only a rumor, nothing has changed.

That's a lot of ground to cover in a weekend. You will not have a lot of time to sight see.

Assuming to are staying SJP, I'd have breakfast outside at Tommy Thompson's one morning, assuming the weather is nice.

There is a small restaurant in Southport that has an Asian/American mix called Loco Joe's that is excellent. It only sits about 30 people so go early for dinner.

Since you are going to Wilmington, you should consider the ferry from Southport over to Fort Fisher and go into Wilmington that way.

You can spend the better part of a day just exploring SJP and still not see it all.

Good luck.

The plan is to spend Saturday and Sunday morning at SJP. Agree we are covering a lot of ground and will be super busy. Sightseeing is not the focus this trip more of a house and location trip. Will definitely visit Tommy Thompson's. We will have a meal voucher as part of our visit. Do you have a restaurant suggestion for dinner inside SJP?

Thank you
