Exploring Bald Head Island

Hope this is the right place for this. I was doing some tinkering with some video I had left over and came up with this. Hope you enjoy it.

Re: Exploring Bald Head Island

Great Video. I grew up in Wilmington, In the 50's the local amateur radio club used to launch a field day operation from Bald Head Island. We moved everything by boat from Ft Fisher (radios, generators, tents, food and lots of mosquito repellent). There was nothing, I mean nothing on that island (light house excepted) . A local pilot used to fly surf fishermen in and they would land on the beach.

Hard to believe what a classy development it has become. Passed out the mouth of the Cape Fear River about 10 years ago moving my ship from New Jersey down to Florida. Kind of sorry I didn't stop and visit. We hit 10 knots riding the river ebb, not sure I could have slowed down to make the left turn.

Will have to take the ferry over if I ever get back to Wilmington.

Thanks again. Figure Eight Island back up the ICW north of Wrightsville Beach was also just sand. Not nomore.
