Facts About Sealife for Your North Carolina Vacation

The beautiful beaches of North Carolina draw visitors from around the world. Noted for the breathtaking dunes that dot the sand-covered beachfront, the North Carolina shoreline is also home to many types of sea life. For your next vacation, you can plan on observing the plethora of creatures who make the sea and its surrounding environs home. 

Crustaceans

The crustaceans of North Carolina sport spiny and hard exoskeletons and many-jointed legs. Admittedly, several eventually find their way into the delicious seafood dishes of North Carolina chefs. But animal lovers benefit from seeing them in their home habitats in and along the North Carolina coast. Crustaceans that you might glimpse on the beach or in the Atlantic include barnacles, shrimp, lobsters and crabs like the Acorn barnacle, Pink shrimp, Spiny lobster and Blue crab.

Mammals

Numerous mammals make the North Carolina coast their home. They include those found in the sea, such as the Atlantic Spotted dolphin and bottle-nosed dolphin. You might also notice land mammals, like rabbits, chipmunks, raccoons and some that can even do double-duty, like beavers. 

Fish

The saltwater fish that inhabit the sea on the North Carolina coast provide a visual riot for the eyes. Once you have booked a place to stay, selecting from Bald Head Island vacation rentals and other spots on or near the beach, you can find out ways to observe nearby nature on your trip. For example, charter boats offer guided tours where you can learn more while out on the ocean. You might watch Red Mackerel, Bluefish or Spotted Trout from the shipside. Other fish common to the area include Spotted Sea Trout and Red Drum.


Spending time out in wild areas and natural spots helps reset the body back to a calm state. For this reason, making plans to enjoy the coastal habitats along the North Carolina beaches can not only teach you about the gorgeous creatures that live there but can enable you to relax and enjoy your time on vacation fully.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
