Spending the Holidays in Wrightsville Beach

While many visitors may think of Wrightsville Beach when they consider their summer vacations, there are also those who call the beach their home for the holidays. 

The temperatures may be colder, but some of our oceanfront and waterfront homes and condos are just the place you want to be when it's time for snuggling in.  Renting a beach house with family and friends for the winter holidays can provide the feeling of being on vacation when all there is do is sleep in, bundle up for long walks on the beach, watch the sunset, enjoy a dinner in (or out) together, and just lay low.  An oceanfront accommodation with large windows overlooking the ocean or water allows the feeling of calm, peace, and lots of space even when you're inside.

Wrightsville Beach is an ideal location for getting the family together at the holidays because of the options for privacy, seclusion, and peace and where it's also easy to get out exploring, exercising, shopping, dining, catching a movie, or simply picking up groceries to stock up the house.  You also might get lucky and enjoy some 70 or 75 degree days in the middle of November, December, and January!

We love the peace, comfort, and coziness of spending the holidays on Wrightsville Beach and would love to hear from you if this is a tradition in your family (or if you plan on starting one)!

PPD Beach 2 Battleship Triathlon 2010

Wrightsville Beach, NC plays host to the third annual PPD Beach 2 Battleship Triathlon on Saturday, November 13, 2010.  Residents and visitors to Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach are invited to cheer on the athletes as they make their way from the Intracoastal Waterway in Wrightsville Beach to Battleship Park along the Cape Fear River - swimming, biking, and running to get there.  If you're not a part of this race as participant or cheerleader, then please be advised that traffic throughout the area will be affected during the race time.

The PPD Beach 2 Battleship is a full Iron distance and half Iron distance triathlon.  The race starts with a 2.4 (full) or 1.2 (half) mile swim - with the current - point to point in the Banks Channel of Wrightsville Beach.  The 112 (full) or 56 (half) mile bike takes competitors from Wrightsville Beach through northern Wilmington, up towards White Lake, and back to the transition area at the Battleship North Carolina.  The 26.2 (full) or 13.1 (half) run covers two bridges, starting and ending at Battleship Park.

The PPD Beach 2 Battleship Triathlon was an Editor's Choice from Triathlete Magazine as one of the 100 best races.  You can find full information at their website:  We hope that visiting competitors can recover enough to take in the town, enjoy the area, and plan on coming back next year.

Good Luck Racers!

For information on other area races, please see an earlier post on Wilmington YMCA Triathlon 2010 at Wrightsville Beach NC.

In Honor of Veteran's Day, 2010

Veteran's Day was established as a national holiday to commemorate the end of hostilities between the Allied Nations and Germany during World War I.  The time of this event is recorded as "the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" in 1918, to quote the Department of Veteran's Affairs.  And now we officially celebrate Veteran's Day on November 11th each year.

This is such an important opportunity we have to take time out to honor all active and retired military personnel as well as all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  We recently uncovered an excellent article from 2007 published in Wrightsville Beach Magazine profiling "The Greatest Generation" World War II veterans who are also Wrightsville Beach residents.  The insight we can glean from them and the unique sense of history they provide for the generations after them are invaluable.

Take a minute out today to read these stories - you'll be glad you did: An Exemplary Era.

Sea Turtle Nesting in Wrightsville Beach

As Sea Turtle nesting season draws to a close around this time of year, we can reflect on how wonderful it is that our beaches are a destination for Sea Turtle species to lay their eggs.

The safety and success of those nests depends largely on dedicated volunteers who patrol the beaches looking for signs of a nest, block off areas of the beach where a nest is suspected or has been confirmed in order to protect the nest, and help the hatchlings make their way safely to the sea.  These volunteers are active in the early morning hours, before most of the beach-goers arrive on the strand, looking for signs of "turtle prints" leading from the dunes to the water.

Female Loggerhead Sea Turtles make their way to our shores in the nighttime between May and August, creating a nest deep in the sand up by the dunes and depositing up to 120 eggs in their nest before heading back to sea.  Volunteers turn out in the first morning light to look for signs of sea turtle tracks in the sand.  Once the beaches start filling up with visitors and the tide starts moving up, these tracks are easily erased and the sea turtle nest can go undetected.  If a potential nest is spotted, volunteers can stake out the nest area and do everything they can to ensure it's protected.  This is such an important job because of how busy our beaches become during Sea Turtle nesting season. 

Wrightsville Beach and southeastern North Carolina is privileged to be home to the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center.  This organization helps coordinate Sea Turtle Volunteers throughout the area and works so hard to protect nests and hatchlings and rehabilitate sick or injured sea turtles for release back to sea.  We are even home to a Sea Turtle Marine Biology Camp for teens to come and learn about Sea Turtles and coastal marine sciences.

Wrightsville Beach Pet Rules

The Dog Days of Fall and Winter
Dogs throughout the Wilmington, NC area are rejoicing that they can go back to the beach.  For the safety, well-being, and convenience of all beach-goers, Wrightsville Beach has strict laws regarding pets on the town beaches. 
  • No dogs allowed on the beach from April through September
  • Leashed dogs are allowed on the beach from October through March
  • Pet waste must be cleaned up island-wide
The fines for not abiding by these rules is $250.00 on first offense (no first warnings!).  The Wrightsville Beach Board of Alderman moved to this fine structure when they found that town officials were issuing hundreds of warnings and violations kept increasing.

The town of Wrightsville Beach loves our furry friends but needs to ensure the safety and comfort of all residents and visitors.

And now it's October, so.... Welcome Back Doggies!  Enjoy!
