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....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
