"Can words describe the fragrance of
the very breath of spring?"
-- Nelje Blanchan
As days grow longer and warmer, it is a good time to enjoy the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Springtime on Roanoke Island brings an abundance of blooming flowers, sunny days, and star-studded nights. It is a time when the Island is ablaze with Dogwoods and Azaleas and The Elizabethan Gardens is in its full splendor.
Just minutes away, along the famous Outer Banks beaches, such activities as beach walking, bird watching and fishing are among favorite pastimes for this time of year. The Outer Banks has long been known as one of the prime areas for bird watching along the Atlantic Flyway. It is a unique and peaceful place that brings many seeking for a glimse of a particular species known to pass this way. Fishing is also a favorite Spring pastime as migrating fish pass along our shores at this time of year. Men and women come again and again to enjoy the thrill of off-shore, in-shore and surf fishing.
