Papa’s World – At Bald Head Island – we had lunch sitting in the sand on the beach.


We had decided to make the trip to this island right off the coast of Southport, N.C.

It is unique in that no autos are allowed – you cross on a ferry boat – and once there –

you either walk – rent a bike or a golf cart!

You can take luggage – in a small shipping container – and a tram will take you to your rental.
Once there – most rentals have golf carts as the whole island is set up for them.

The view from the ferry arriving on the island.

The beaches are wide and plenty of public beach access from the golf cart paths.

Along the way to the beach access – the little house for the lighthouse keeper!

There were many things to see – rows of neat houses – cottages – some private – others you rent.

The beach was deserted – no matter which one we stopped and walked!

Miles of beach – nothing but sand and water.
It was a beautiful autumn day – high 60’s – blue skies and bright sun.

On this midweek day – all the places to eat or drink were closed for the day except one!

And that would close at 2:00 PM.

So – we decided to go back and get a boxed lunch –

and then find the closest beach access – park and walk and sit on the beach and eat!

Papa and Sherry with our neighbors Steve and Diane – they are from Western New York where we lived until 1999!

Eating our lunch sitting on the sand with Diane and Steve – who just happen to live the summer months

back in WNY near where we lived before moving to NVA!

Small WORLD as they now are our neighbors in Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

Our view as we ate lunch.

My next blog will be in and around Bald Head Island – riding the golf cart for four hours!

Thanks, for reading Papa’s World
