We enjoyed the gorgeous beaches at the end of September and I hope things get back together soon. A lovely and attractive part of the World. I did not find the shark's teeth everybody promised me!

We had wonderful time at the beach, clean water, and not too crowded. We love the walking down the shore, my grandchildren enjoyed picking up shells, and building sand castles.

Wow, I had no idea how absolutely beautiful the Atlantic beaches are. The water is warm, the sand is a soft fine grain that is heavenly to walk on. I was amazed at the number and size of the seashells. I grew up going to beaches in California. I never understood why the East Coast visitors thought our Pacific water... More
