    No damage from Hurricane Arthur at Avon Harbor, Outer Banks

    We’re very happy to announce to say that Avon Harbor suffered no real Hurricane Arthur damage. Indeed, these photos were taken at 11 am on July 4th, less than twelve hours after the storm hit. Blue skies all around!

    We storm-proofed in advance a bit by removing the nets and buoy ties from the Avon Harbor Weddings wedding arbor (www.avonharborweddings.com), which we’ll be putting back up again later today, hopefully as we enjoy a beautiful post-Hurricane and 4th of July sunset.

    There is still some water standing at the edge of the Pamlico Sound, but we expect that to recede soon. The piece of wood and the brown sea grass in the photo below show where the high water line came. It didn’t even touch the wedding arbor!

    Finally, here’s a shot of the boats left in Avon Harbor during the storm. Again, all seems to be fine with no Hurricane Arthur damage. This photo of the boats in the Avon Harbor is taken facing northeast. Check out the Arthur’s last band of clouds leaving us for good (facing the west were nothing but blue skies)! We even have power and internet service.

    While we’re happy that our Avon Harbor based businesses and our partners are 'back in business', most of all, we’re delighted that everyone is safe and healthy. We thank both the emergency response teams, and everyone around the world for their thoughts and prayers! We’re looking forward to seeing everyone back on the Outer Banks soon!
