    another victim of beach erosion

    If you look at a map, the whole of North Carolina's Outer Banks poke out prominently in the Atlantic Ocean. That makes them a prime target for hurricanes. In the northern Atlantic Ocean, hurricane season runs from 1 June through to 30 November. When you visit the Outer Banks, you will see prominently displayed Hurricane Evacuation Route signs posted. Take a mental note on arrival so that you can evacuate safely and efficiently if and when the time comes.

    While noreasters don't cause nearly the structural damage hurricanes do, they can severely erode the beach and put beachfront houses and businesses in peril like the beach house featured in the photo. It is common for houses on the Outer Banks to rest atop stilts to ride out storm surges.

    As I looked out over the field, I wondered where the cactus where hiding. Expecting huge prickly pear cactus pads, I was suprised when I actually spotted this ferocios plant!
