HATTERAS, N.C. – The latest object to wash ashore on the Outer Banks is still a mystery. The white metal object about 15 feet long and nine feet wide washed up on a Hatteras beach on Sunday.

Deputy Chief Ranger Mike Henry of the Outer Banks National Parks Service told WTVD he believes it is part of an aircraft.

“It looks like aircraft grade metal.” Henry said. But he has not ruled out the possibility of it being a casing to a rocket that may have been launched recently. Henry says the object has been sent to Langley Air Force Base for identification.

Local photographer Erin Everlee took numerous pictures of the object and posted them on Facebook. “I don’t think it was in the water for a long time, it was in good condition.” she said.

Kill Devil Hills, NC Ranks 9th as Best Surf Towns In America!

No. 9: Kill Devil Hills, NC

The thin strip of land far off the coast of North Carolina known as the Outer Banks can feel very, very removed. That’s precisely because it is. Rustic beachhouses are perched on stilts with hightides nearly at their doorsteps. Sea oats dance on the coastal dunes. Each year, hurricanes come close enough to send the residents running. Despite its sinister name, few American surf towns boast the peace of mind on offer in the Outer Banks town of Kill Devil Hills. That peace of mind, of course, is access to some of the best tubes on offer on the entire Eastern Seaboard. Sure, summer sees its fair share of visitors who want a taste of this town’s beautiful isolation, but in the winters? It’s just you and chilly, thundering peaks.

Waves:
Exposed, offshore, and (luckily) lacking the gradual continental shelf most states on the East Coast have, the Outer Banks is a swell magnet. Out here, beach breaks and outer sandbars are the name of the game, but there’s just something about the place that makes the waves break harder, hollower and with more gusto. In short, you’re pulling into shacks out here — something you can’t normally say at spots on the Right Coast. From June through October, you’ll probably be wearing trunks, and while you might shiver in your hood and gloves come winter as water temps dip into the low 40s…it’s probably flat everywhere else.

Culture:
Sure, it’s North Carolina, but you’re still in the deep South. Kill Devil Hills is no exception. Trucker hats and overalls aren’t an ironic fashion statement out here, and that’s a good thing: Locals are authentic, honest, real people. As far as cuisine goes, hush puppies, sweet tea, and syrupy salutations pepper the fine home-cooking establishments along the coast.

Quality of Life:
Kill Devil Hills’ pacing bears an uncanny resemblance to its seasons. In the inclement winter, Kill Devil Hills creeps along as a ghost town. A vast majority of residents just half an hour south receive unemployment checks due to the migratory population. Just as spring revives the natural world, so, too, does it resuscitate the life and economy of the Outer Banks. By summer, the islands bustle with life and warmth, only to settle down and reflect on the momentary gorge during the crisp breath of autumn. The only wildcard in the equation: hurricanes. You never know when a Category Five might seriously change life in this Carolinian treasure.

Average Water Temp: 67 (But gets as cold at 46 in the winter)
Average Air Temp: 62
Median Income: $ 51,101
Median Home Price: $ 294,500
Most Common Industry: Accommodations / Food Service, Construction, Retail Trade
Population: 7,121
Nearest Large City: Virginia Beach, VA (62.9 miles, pop. 452,745)
Premier Surf Spots: Avalon Pier, S-Turns, Cape Hatteras Lighthouse

New island appears off coast of North Carolina’s Outer Banks



The secret’s out.
A new island has appeared off the coast of North Carolina’s Cape Hatteras National Seashore, and unfortunately for locals, word is spreading — fast.

The mile-long sandbar, dubbed “Shelly Island” for its plethora of seashells and colorful pebbles, has been forming and growing since late spring. Residents and tourists alike are starting to take notice.

Reide Corbett, a professor in the Department of Geological Sciences at East Carolina University and a scientist at UNC Coastal Studies Institute, advises people to enjoy exploring the tiny island while they still can.

“The thing about the Outer Banks — they are pretty dynamic. [The island] is kind of neat and interesting and provides new piece of land for people to explore, but it is a dynamic environment,” Reide told CBS News. “I wasn’t surprised to see it, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it disappear.”

Chad Koczera was one of the first people to explore the newly-formed island on May 31.

He was traveling with his fiancée from Connecticut to Cape Point, the place where they’d gotten engaged, when he stumbled upon an unfamiliar sight.

“This was our fifth time down to Hatteras. We like to return to the Point because that’s the same spot I proposed,” Koczera told CBS News. “We were driving to the Point after a storm to collect shells when we spotted an area we couldn’t get to by car.”

Confused, Koczera pulled out his drone camera to get a better look at the narrow island. When he looked at the footage, he was met with a stunning sight.

Massive $46 million water park to open near Outer Banks next month

By Stephen Katz | The Virginia Pilot

POWELLS POINT, N.C.

The much-anticipated H2OBX Waterpark in Currituck County will make its debut on the official first day of summer.

The company announced Friday on Facebook that the park will open June 21, a Wednesday. It was originally planned for Memorial Day weekend.

“We’re ready for the most EPIC Summer the Outer Banks has ever seen,” H20BX officials said in the post.

The $46 million park designed by New York-based Aquatic Development Group will include more than 20 slides, an “adventure river,” four “activity pools” with ropes, a 450,000-gallon wave pool and rentable cabanas, The Pilot has reported. It sits on a mostly rural tract just across U.S. 158 from The Pointe Golf Club.

If the park expands later to cover the owner’s entire 95-acre property, it could become the largest water park in the country.

The site is expected to see a daily attendance of around 5,000.

Visitors can buy season passes and reserve tickets online. A day pass for those 42 inches or taller will cost $50 and $45 for those shorter. Children under 2 enter free.

Outer Banks beach named among best in US, ranking says

By TAMARA LUSH, Associated Press

SIESTA KEY, Fla. — North Carolina has one of the best beaches in the country, according to a new ranking.

Ocracoke Lifeguarded Beach on the Outer Banks was ranked the third best beach in the country in a ranking by Dr. Beach. It was nudged out by Kapalua Bay Beach in Maui, Hawaii and top-ranked Siesta Beach in Sarasota, Florida.

The site uses criteria such as beach width at low tide, beach material and sand softness, among others, to rank each site.

Stephen Leatherman, aka Dr. Beach, a professor at Miami’s Florida International University, wrote of the Tar Heel site: “Ocracoke, once the home of Blackbeard the pirate, is still a special place—it is my favorite getaway beach. Here you will find some of the wildest beaches in the country. Big surf dominates in late summer so families with children may want to come earlier in the year. Don’t expect to play golf or stay at the Ritz; the main pursuits are swimming and beachcombing.”

The sand on Siesta Beach on Florida’s Gulf Coast is as fine as powdered sugar, a pure, sparkling white and soft as a kitten’s fur — all because it’s comprised of 99 percent pure crushed quartz.

For that reason, and many others, it was selected this year as the best beach in America by a professor who’s made a career ranking and studying beaches around the United States.

“The sand is outstanding,” Leatherman said. “Every time I go there, I’ve got to take a bag home with me. It’s almost sacrilegious to walk on it with shoes on.”

Top 10:

10. Beachwalker Park Kiawah Island, South Carolina

9. Coronado Beach, San Diego, California

8. Hapuna Beach State Park, Big Island, Hawaii

7. Caladesi Island State Park Dunedin/Clearwater, Florida

6. Coast Guard Beach, Cape Cod, Massachusetts

5. Coopers Beach, Southampton, New York

4. Grayton Beach State Park Florida panhandle

3. Ocracoke Lifeguarded Beach, Outer Banks of North Carolina

2. Kapalua Bay Beach, Maui, Hawaii

1. Siesta Beach Sarasota, Florida

On a recent workday, Siesta Beach was packed with people, even though it wasn’t particularly sunny. The turquoise water was still gorgeous, the sand still fine. The beach is about 200-300 feet (60-90 meters) wide in some places, which means people can stretch out and not feel crowded. The beach was last year’s runner up and one of three in Florida on this year’s top 10 list.

“It’s nice and clean, that’s what I look for,” said Jamie Gaskin, a 59-year-old retiree from Lakeland, Florida, who was scoping out the beach for a family Memorial Day party. She especially liked the two-story pavilion, which boasts a snack bar and restrooms. It’s only two years old and even offers sweet crepes for breakfast and tapas dishes in the early evening.

“There’s plenty of tables to barbecue and to hang out. And the restrooms were nice and clean. I’d definitely recommend this,” she said.

Siesta Beach is on a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico, and is located just southwest of downtown Sarasota. The water is placid on most days — Leatherman says you can measure the waves “in inches” — and is shallow and safe for swimming, with no sharp drop-offs. Added bonuses include lots of parking, a trolley service to and from the island’s adorable downtown area and plenty of lifeguards. The beach also has natural dunes, which is a bit rare for Florida, and the fine sand is excellent for building sand castles.

“I look for kind of a balance between nature and a developed environment,” said Leatherman, who lives on the other side of the state, closer to Miami Beach. “Fourteen million people go to Miami Beach every year. There’s just too many people there. I think a lot of people are looking for more of a getaway.”

Leatherman, who is director of the Laboratory for Coastal Research at Florida International University, uses about 50 criteria to assess and rank beaches across the country. In recent years, he has given extra points to beaches that prohibit smoking, saying cigarette butts are not only environmentally damaging, but can ruin the experience for beach-goers. Safety and environmental management are other major factors, he said.

He’s rated beaches since 1991.

The Maui beach that came in at No. 2 on the list, Kapalua Bay Beach, is smaller than Siesta Beach. It’s crescent-shaped and flanked by palm trees. Unlike lots of Hawaii beaches, there aren’t many waves at Kapalua, he said, making it perfect for safe swimming.

“The coral reefs almost go right to the beach. There are tropical fish swimming all around.”

The third beach on the list, Ocracoke, is unique in both history and location. Leatherman points out that it was once the pirate Blackbeard’s old haunt. And it’s only accessible by a state ferry.

“The only negative I have, it seems like too many cars,” he said. “I wish they would turn car ferries to pedestrian ferries.”

Leatherman says he tries to select locations that are a bit off the beaten path, yet immensely rewarding once visitors arrive. Siesta Beach, he points out, is an outstanding place to watch the sun dip below the Gulf horizon — one more reason why it made the top of this year’s list.
