When we walk – we can go in two directions – this walk is to the East – and the Pond.
Here we turn right and walk down the street – there are maybe six houses down here that are still in construction – and all are at the end of this road and then onto the cul-de-sac that winds around to the back of our house through the woods.
Here you see my wife Sherry starting on the path and the pond is to her right – and in the middle, some 100 feet away is a somewhat raised portion – almost like an old farm road.
This is where WOODIE – THE GATOR – likes to sunbathe!
Although I have only ever seen one gator in here – neighbors have seen TWO – both this size!
I would estimate it is 6 plus feet long!
Maybe seven feet!
The next blog will be “ENTERING THE WOODS” where I am on watch for snakes!
We have seen one rather large Black Snake laying on the path before you go into the woods –
Phase one completed – Phase two is almost done – no idea what phase the garden homes are in –
they are conjoined town home-condos across from this entrance but part of our development.
There are numerous homes there completed but looks like less than halfway done.
We walk almost daily weather permitting.
Phase three – all the infrastructure is already in – and two of the roads are paved.
I assume that some have already been sold as I was told construction is supposed to start in March.
It is hard to tell now but they look similar in size to our lots – perhaps a little bit bigger.
The far tree line to the right has a cul-de-sac behind it and I assume will not be cut down.
In this picture, we live beyond this view to the right.
Behind these homes is where the community center is to the right.
This was all woods when we purchased our lot.
I stand where a huge hill of dirt has been piled up – separating the sites here from the clearings behind it. I think this mound of the earth will be pushed back to cover the cleared space or used as a fill when they put in the remaining infrastructure.
According to the site maps – one more pond is yet to be added to the right somewhere in the trees.
There already is an access road right back to the pond which is either the same size as the one completed at the end of our road or bigger.
If you could continue to walk – straight ahead of them is our new home through the woods.
To the right beyond those trees is the mound of dirt.
The next blog will be THE WALK CONTINUED through the cleared area to the pond.
In Cameron Woods Community – Ocean Isle Beach – N.C. – there will be a lot of firsts!
COCKTAILS in the driveway – lunch at Riversedge golf course – picnic at the park.
The new book readers club and in the future the free book exchange library!
We have been sold to LENNAR – the number two developer in the country!
Things have changed and they are known for building spec homes – you get limited choices!
Different elevations – and one price has it all!
Whereas we were able to select almost everything! ( we are happy to have already built!)
It will be here that we will all come together as a community of neighbors – meetings – lunches and dinners. The free book library will be out front by the road somewhere I presume for access to exchange the books. We can walk to this easily! A workout room and kitchen and bathrooms.
8:30 AM. = we all met at the intersection of Waterway and Lindley – it was cool but bright sunshine –
led to a warm 3.7-mile walk!
The very first TURKEY TROT WALK-RUN!
A big thank you to Rob – who organized it by simply announcing it on the Community Facebook page!
And YES – the picture of the TURKEYS are from the neighborhood – on the cul-de-sac behind the
new community center -taken a few days before by Sherry!
We have heard from others who were away and could not join us in the first neighborhood
THANKSGIVING TURKEY TROT!
But – will walk next year!
We are a transit community – many people have this as a second home awaiting retirement.
A lot of people are here but working from home.
And a few of us old-timers ( us) are retired!
I think Sherry and myself are more the Grandma and Grandpa of the neighborhood! LOL
It is a community of many FIRSTS – waiting to be completed in a couple years.
CAMERON WOODS COMMUNITY – OCEAN ISLE BEACH – come and join us – either if you already own here or want to build in the new Phase Three!
Cocktails in the driveway – picnic at the park – lunch meet and greet at the golf course
and now the first TURKEY-TROT-WALK!
Chrismas caroling is in the works and who knows what else is being talked about!
Needless to say – you do not wander around – we do not get close – and they seem to just stay there. Hundreds of golfers play this course and do not go to the water to find your ball – same for high grass and weeds!

Welcome to CAMERON WOODS COMMUNITY of OCEAN ISLE BEACH, N.C. 28469!
We are situated off Old Georgetown Road – across from Ocean Ridge Plantation – this also – parts of it – is Ocean Ridge.
Across that street is home to the BIG CATS golf courses of Ocean Ridge.
YES – there is wildlife here – I have seen Turkey and Deer – among the trees and houses here.
I have seen Gators in the ponds and some have seen snakes( I saw a large Blacksnake) while others have seen Copperheads.
I suppose raccoons and possums – I have seen Eagles and large hawks – a really big red-headed woodpecker.
While we are country – we are about two miles to three different grocery stores –
multiple bars and grills and many other shops.
AND – we are on the mainland side of the ICW and minutes away from Ocean Isle Beach and Sunset beach.
In other words – I think we have it all right here!
We all are hoping for a SPRING finish date – a place to gather – exercise and relax by the pool.
Until that is finished – we have had a few get together’s at outside sources –
The latest outside was at Rivers Edge Golf Course in Shallotte N.C.
And then we had a DRIVEWAY COCKTAIL PARTY at Diane and Steve’s house at the bottom of Waterway and Lindley.
The invites were neighborhood-wide through the Cameron Woods Community Facebook site.
Cameron Woods is almost done with Phase Two – and an even larger Phase Three will begin under the new company LENNAR! There is guess’s that will not end there as some of the new roads in the next phase ends at the tree lines! No Cul-De-Sac – just like it will continue on!
