Fishing on Cape Point

Before we headed to the point we stopped at the RED DRUM to renew our fishing license

Hard to believe we have already been here 10 days.

The drive to the Cape is beautiful

But the Point is breathtaking

What Men Do on Hatteras Island

As we embark on our second week here I have discovered men come here to do those things they can’t do at home or – if they could – their wives won’t let them.

Drink beer for breakfast
Smoke cigars
Drive their truck on the beach
Scratch
Cuss
Spit
Eat barbecue twice a day
Buy fishing equipment
Drive up and down HWY 12 searching for fresh mullet

Wear kilts???

You don’t have to spend much time on this vulnerable barrier island before finding yourself in a discussion about Birds vs. ORV. Personally, I feel the residents of HI have their hands full with mother nature without the Sierra Club and the Audubon Society taking aim at a local economy that relies heavily on fishing.

There Are No Trains on Hatteras Island

There are no trains
The only roar comes from the ocean
and it never stops
There are no triathlons
but fishermen stand in the surf for hours
and they never stop
There are no all night diners
but there are rainbows, sunshine
and the wind never stops
