Welcome to our little piece of paradise – ten minutes away – OIB, N.C. The pier and beach access.
We live on the mainland side with the ICW between us and the beach – between four and five miles away.
We selected the Cameron Woods Community because it gave us access to the beach but in a – NO flood zone.
The causeway bridge over the ICW – we have boated down underneath this bridge and on the mainland, side is where we have two
grocery stores – and additional shopping, and a small airport.
Starting in May and ending in September – we have outdoor free concerts in the park on OIB right across from Pelican Perch bar and grill and miniature golf and the Aquarium.
You can take in drinks but they have to be in plastic cups!
The bands are top rate and usually, 3 to 4 hundred people show up – many are locals and the rest are renters of the vacation homes.
Sunsets and sunrises can be seen from the beach and shoreline.
Sipping a cocktail on the beach – sun – surf – and sand – warm waters and lots of things to do.
The East end of the island with the new Terminal Groin – placed here to stop erosion – in the upper right corner – since this was constructed – a lagoon – tidal pool forms at low tide and is a great place for families with kids as it is only one to two feet deep and is huge.
You can take rafts and float around in there and the water in summer is warm

The four couples have been friends going on 35 years and some over 40 years.
We try to get together at least once or twice a year –
made more difficult because some still live in WNY and another couple in Va. Beach.
While Sherry and myself live 32 miles from the McBrides now.
We all rented a pontoon boat for four hours to cruise up and down the ICW from OIB – to Holden Beach and back to Sunset Beach – where we saw a lone Dolphin for over 15 minutes diving for food in 8 feet of water.
It was really busy being labor day weekend – countless boats going both ways and creating waves!
To be continued with more pictures of the ICW and friends.
PAPA’S WORLD – FUN TIMES – OLD FRIENDS – GETTING TOGETHER!
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!

Because we are on a major curve to the ocean – if you look at a global map – from below Myrtle Beach up to Wilmington N.C. – we are constanlty getting clouds and winds from the ocean – coming in from the sunrises and then at night coming in from the sunsets.
They say because of that curve – hurricanes usually by pass this area and head for the tip of Wilmington and then onto the outer banks!
Now – if there is a high pressure off shore -then that will direct the storm into the mainland – but that does not happen often.
And the lightening storms mostly come from over the ocean some three miles away! Thunder and rain!
Never tried this but think it to be funny!!! Might be my go to in the store next time! LOL!
