Did know that seafood is highly seasonal?
The Outer Banks Atlantic coast is known for its unique ecosystems that contribute to one of the most diverse, year-round offerings available. Every spring and summer is the time for our famous soft shell crabs. Summer brings shrimp, mackerel and more. Fall is a great time to enjoy flounder. And winter brings oysters and sea trout. Of course, these are just a few of our bountiful year-round catches, download a seafood availability chart here and see for yourself.
Some of our backyard birds never left, but we are looking forward to those that return in the fall. We five or six feeders in our backyard but are favorite is the one on our deck. It is flat and nailed to the deck railing. Yes, we have nightly visitors who knock it a kilter and bend the mesh in the bottom, but it gives us a special view out our back kitchen table window.
