Pleasure Island included in summer travel feature

Carolina Beach and Kure Beach were recently mentioned in The New York Times' Sunday Travel Section. The story, titled "One Summer, 14 Weekends," boasted that the area has "pleasurable beaches for catching a tan," and mentions hiking at Carolina Beach State Park, the wonders of the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, and the 712-foot-long Kure Beach Pier, where hopeful fisherman can snag mackeral and flounder.

The brief story also cites the Cape Fear River, which "rambles past [the] historic and picturesque city of Wilmington, N.C., widening and creating slivery barrier islands with [the] river on one side and the Atlantic on the other."

Sounds so beautiful and fun, I wished I lived there. Good thing I already do.
