Beautiful Atlantic Ocean.

North Carolina has a beautiful stretch of beaches.  My favorite beaches are Carolina, Kure, and Oak Island beaches.  I have observed lots of people who are surprised by how warm the water is at these beaches.  The reason is because the warm gulf stream runs through this region causing warmer than expected temperatures. I was surprised to  learn that among Ben Franklin’s many accomplishments, he is thought to first map this stream.  He sure was a busy man!
