Is Your Head in the Sand? The saying "Head in the Sand" means that you are oblivious to things that are going on around you...  with your head in the sand you can not hear or see what is happening around you so in your mind it really isn't happening at all.  Sort of like the Ostrich and the old "If I can't see you, you can't see me" concept.   If you are trying to sell your home, you need to get your head out of the sand (or the pine straw).  I know that you probably over paid for it in 2005 (a lot of folks did), and I really do understand that you don't want to lose money (who does). Unfortunately, home values in Pine Knoll Shores have dropped an average of 10% each year since 2007.   If you search long enough, You may be able to find an agent that will bury their head in the sand righ...

Crystal Coast, North Carolina 8. The North Carolina Aquarium in Pine Knoll Shores - There are three Aquariums in North Carolina Manteo, Wilmington, and Pine Knoll Shores. They are all great but my favorite is right here on the Crystal Coast. You can see all kinds of sea life from huge sharks to sea otters. You can attend seminars, expos, and eco tours from walking trails to kayak trips to camps. Depending upon the season you better bring some bug spray. You can do the fossil dig and look for shark's teeth or you can go to the gift shop. Another favorite is the Dairy Queen / Orange Julius right by the exit. In keeping with full disclosure I must add I own the Dairy Queen so eat up!!! Bring the family, bring the friends or even bring a big school group. It is very fun!!!!! Come have a bla...

Sort of Speechless Sunday by the Seashore While taking photos of a new listing for my mom today, I couldn't help but kick back on the deck of the property and enjoy the sunshine and the beautiful view.  The sky was bright blue today, the sound a deeper blue and the birds were enjoying this glorious weather almost as much as I am! Life is good on the Crystal Coast

We have the best Neighbors.... My office just happens to be right next door to the Pine Knoll Shores Fire/EMS/Police Emergency Team.  We are often the first to know about a fire, a car accident, etc. as they rush out of the parking lot with the sound of sirens filling the air.  Yesterday, as I left the office, tired & grumpy, I looked up to see our local heroes training and running drills and it was a beautiful sight!  At that moment, Our Local Heroes touched my heart and didn't even know it!   I wonder if they have any idea how much we appreciate all that they do!  I think some cookies and a note are in order....
