Rip Van Winkle syndrome?

There's so much new on our small island, it feels almost like we woke up from a nap in 1980.

Here are just a few recent events and additions to grace Carolina Beach and Kure Beach

> Carolina Beach was one of 12 municipalities across the state to get a bicycle and pedestrian planning grant from the DOT. Last week, the N.C. Board of Transportation awarded $315,850 to 12 municipalities for bicycle and pedestrian planning. Carolina Beach gets $20,000.
> The North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher introduces an albino alligator on May 29.
> The new Kure Beach Boardwalk will be completed by Memorial Day.
> The Carolina Beach Boardwalk is undergoing a facelift that includes amusements for the summer. Indeed, rides are already being installed.
> New(ish) restaurants include Havana's Fresh Island Seafood, Harbor Masters, The Dive, The Shuckin' Shack Oyster Bar, and Tangerine Caribbean Grill.
> A Brew-Thru opened recently and we're awaiting a new (and larger) ABC Store.
