We spent a long weekend in November at Portsmouth Island, a small southern Outer Banks barrier island.
Portsmouth Island is 13 miles long and only accessible by a small boat or privately run ferry.
It’s one of the last wild frontiers of the Outer Banks with no businesses and only a small handful of National Park Service regulated and managed cabins.
4WD vehicles are a must for driving on the beach. . .
And not a place where you want to get stuck in the sand and have to leave your car behind.
November weather is unpredictable on the NC coast. Saturday was a beautiful day to fish with 65 degree temperatures and sunshine. Sunday was blustery, cold and raining.
My friend Carol is a dedicated fisherwoman. . .me, not so much.
I caught a Monarch butterfly looking for nectar and plenty of photos. :)
For a while it looked like this was the only fish we were going to catch. . .
But we took a page out of the Carolina Panthers’ playbook to Keep Pounding. . .
