The Calm Before the Storm – Evacuating Topsail Island, NC for Hurricane Florence

It is amazing how peaceful and beautiful it is today, while we await a massive storm. The streets are empty and many homes are boarded up in preparation for the arrival of Hurricane Florence. The mandatory evacuation was effective this morning at 8:00am. After leaving the island, no one can return without showing proof of residency.

It is discouraging to leave your home and belongings, not knowing if they will be there when you return. Yet safety has to be the main priority. I gathered as many of my favorite items as possible. However, the most valuable items were my cherished pictures, important documents, clothes, my son’s favorite toys (a bundle of stuffed penguins and legos), my dog, and my cat. ❤️

I am sending best wishes and positive vibes to everyone preparing for Hurricane Florence. Here’s to knowing that things always work out, and not only surviving but thriving… 🌈

Gorgeous Day on Topsail

The warmer weather is finally back, although cooler temperatures will return soon. Regardless, it’s a gorgeous day to be on Topsail Island!

Sending Sunshine

Here is some sunshine to brighten your day! The sun is back on gorgeous Topsail Island. I’m also attaching a picture from yesterday so you can see it is a big change. Enjoy your day!

Wacky Weather on Topsail

It was an interesting weekend with the changing temperatures. Friday afternoon was warm and people were enjoying the beach. It felt as if summer was close by. Children were laughing, playing, and building sand castles. People were fishing and putting up tents.

Then Saturday afternoon, the rain started and it turned cold in the evening. It was still chilly today and by 6:00pm this evening, I didn’t see anyone on Topsail Beach. Here’s to warmer weather soon! 😀

Treasures on the Shore

There were a good amount of shells on the beach yesterday.

Here are a few pictures of shells and stones that I found while walking on the beach.
