Pictorial Report: Frozen Pleasure Island January 29th, 2014

The Carolina Beach Boardwalk looking towards Cape Fear Blvd.

(Photos by Willard H. Killough III) - January 29th, 2014 - Lots of sleet and a little snow covered Pleasure Island January 29th. Roads in Carolina Beach and Kure Beach, NC were covered in a layer of ice, sleet and a little snow. Many businesses were open. Schools and government offices were closed. Traffic was sparse but driving slowly on area roads was not an issue for most people. Families were out and about having fun riding sleds, boogie boards and even one kid with a surf board sliding on the ice. People were out getting coffee at restaurants and taking in the scenery.

The Kure Beach Pier was slick from the deck to the handrails. It was easy to walk out, but not so easy to walk back down the ramp on the ice. Still beautiful scenery.

Families gathered at the Fort Fisher Civil War Museum to ride their sleds, boogie boards and even a surf board down the hills at the Fort.
