GREY TROUT ARE BITING!

GREY TROUT ARE BITING IN THE TURN BASIN IN MOREHEAD CITY, NC

Took our boat out today and caught our limit of grey trout which is one each. Brought them home, cleaned them, fried them for lunch and thanked our Good Lord for living in such a wonderful area. We fished in the Turn Basin east of the Port Authority in Morehead City when the tide turned and was running out to sea. It took us all of 30 minutes to catch the two trout.

In today’s economy it is a priviledge to have the ability to go such a short distance away and throw your lines in the water and reap such delicious rewards from the salt water so close to our reach. In Carteret County there are numerous public fishing areas and public marinas to launch your boats and take advantage of and enjoy a relaxing few hours of fishing. Sometimes the fish are biting and plentiful. Somes days, of course, they are not. That’s why it is called ‘fishing’ and not ‘catching’. But the reward of a little time on the water is well worth it. Come and see for yourself! Be sure to check out the “Hotlinks” menu on our website at www.GenaGilbertRealEstate.com for additional information or send us an email at Gena@GenaGilbertRealEstate.com.

Women’s Counsel of REALTORS(R) LUAU – HUGE SUCCESS!
The First and hopefully, annual ‘WCR Luau’ of the WCR Crystal Coast Chapter was fun, entertaining and fruitful primarily due to strong support and efforts of the GENEROUS local sponsors, AMAZING community donations and the hard, dedicated work of the WCR Crystal Coast Chapter Luau Committee Members. Considerable portions of the proceeds from the event went to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Coastal Carolina and Carteret County Domestic Violence.

Personal Guide Through The Crystal Coast of NC

JOIN ME AND SHARE MEMORIES FROM YEARS OF PERSONAL EXPERIENCES HERE AT THE CRYSTAL COAST OF NC
When you crossed over the bridge from Morehead City to Atlantic Beach there used to be a place full of rides, a ferris wheel, cotton candy and a dance pavillion at ‘THE CIRCLE’ in Atlantic Beach. All of those things are gone now BUT ‘THE CIRCLE’ with all of its memories is still there right on the beach where it has always been. ‘THE CIRCLE’ is still open to the public. A bath house, swings and the ‘boardwalk’ are there now. Best of all the beautiful, pristine, sand and beach are still there to enjoy! They could not take that away, nor could they take away the fun of jumping the waves or the gorgeous sunrises or the sunsets over the ocean. There is also plenty of parking spaces and there are rumors (and lots of hope) the rides might return and the cotton candy. That would be a dream come true!

MOVING EAST let’s visit FT. MACON! Follow the beach highway east all the way to the end. Don’t worry; you have not passed the fort or the park just because you can’t see it. That’s the way they built it! Ft. Macon was built between 1826 and 1834 and replaced Ft. Dobbs, a wooden structure built on the same site in 1756. There was another earlier fort named Ft. Hampton. Both forts eventually washed away. Ft. Macon, however, was built out of brick and mortar to stay! Kids of all ages love visiting and revisiting the fort. Climb the stairs and watch for the British ships just like the soldiers did in the Civil War! Robert E. Lee was stationed at Ft. Macon as a young soldier. For additional information click on Photo Tour of Fort Macon.

WELCOME BLUE ANGELS AIR SHOW!
The Blue Angels will be in Havelock and in the skies over Craven and Carteret County NC tomorrow! We will hear the ‘Sound of Freedom’ loud and clear and rejoice as locals do every day knowing our armed forces are closeby.

PINE KNOLL SHORES AQUARIUM is definitely on the list of ‘MUST SEE’! The Ocean Gallery at the PKS Aquarium proudly exhibits fearsome sand tiger sharks, endangered sea turtles which they frequently rescue, nurse them back to a healthy life they deserve and deliver them back to their ocean home, a huge array of color and species all in one gigantic tank! Plan to spend at least an hour or more to enjoy the exhibits inside and out!

Exactly what is an Allen Hainge CyberStar®?

Good question! According to the dictionary there is no definition for the word ‘CyberStar’, however, when the term is used in connection with a trademark group such as the ‘CyberStars 2.0’ it is commonly associated with REALTORS(R) who work on interactive information sharing via the Internet and other networking and technical venues. As a ‘CyberStar(R)member I am a REALTOR(R) who likes to Blog, Network on various sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Linked-In among others to stay in touch with my customers and clients and to market real estate in the most beneficial way in today’s society.

MORTGAGE INTEREST RATES and REALTOR(R) REFERRALS:
Local mortgage rates remain strong and inviting at 4.750%+/- with 0 Points on a 30 years Fixed Mortgage to qualified buyers. Rates are subject to change day to day and sometimes even hour to hour. I have personally experience a Residential Mortgage interest rate exceeding 13.00% back in the late 1970’s and I know that rates have exceeded 17% in the past. Unless you have experienced this yourself it is hard to believe rates can go that high but it is a fact. Enjoy the mortgage rates and terms available today if possible! Speak with an experienced REALTOR® to find out if they can refer you to qualified lenders. Don’t know one in your area? Contact us at and we may be able to assist you in finding an experienced well qualified REALTOR®.
