Summer Sunsets on OIB

What’s better…..

Jinks Creek Sunset

….than sunsets on Ocean Isle? (or sunrises for that matter!) Fall & Winter sunsets are by far the best….the sun is lower in the sky, so much more colorful than summer and it casts long beautiful shadows across the island. On a sunny/cloudy early evening recently, we decided to enjoy the pleasant weather with dinner up on the deck at Jinks Creek. It was, of course, as wonderful as it always is. What made it even better this particular evening was the addition of fresh, NC grown Old Baldy Oysters! Yes!…fresh local oysters in the middle of the summer! What a treat! If you’d like to find out more about how they grow oysters and harvest them in the summer, please visit their website. It’s a fascinating story, only outdone by the amazing taste of their beautiful oysters.

The sun began to set just as we were wrapping up dinner so we decided to make our way down to the east end for a sunset walk along the shore. It was just a lovely warm & breezy evening and many other folks had the same thing in mind. We were blessed with some exceptional colors and some dramatic cloud formations across the sky. Here are some photos from the east end and from down at Ferry Landing Park. Hope you enjoy.
