Photo ops in the Carolinas–Houses and Boats

Beach houses no 1st floor

North Carolina’s barrier islands and beaches are have attracted many people who’ve built upscale homes.  The state sticks out into the Atlantic Ocean into the path of hurricanes.   The first story of homes on the beach is built to be sacrificed to an attack by. heavy seas 

In somewhat more protected area, people have built McMansions.

I believe this house is owned by someone who made his fortune in lipstick.

I found a cute apartment for myself overlooking the waterway

Substantial yachts abound on the waterway.  However I encountered a few boats that were out of the ordinary and more interesting to this unemployed yacht broker.

Three-masted schooners are hard to find these days.

    I can’t help but think of Naples, Florida when viewing these pix. That kind of rich is obscene, don’t you think? Loved the boats, especially the one man, paddled one. Have fun!

    Wondeful photos…loved the yachts…the McMansions ARE obscene…if I had that kind of money I would live away from others in a beach shack somewhere in the world that is tropical.
