The Roanoke Island Inn, Cloudy Beach Walks

Cloudy Beach Walks

By Lauren Borland

As is typical with a hot, sticky summer in the south, we have had some soggy days around here the past few months. While the area in general and my flowers specifically need a little rain now and then, occasionally we get a bit more than asked for. Jason and I had our first look at “hurricane protocol” this July and what goes into to protecting our slice of paradise when threatening weather approaches.

It was a long and unusually cold and snowy winter for us here on Roanoke Island, but I *think* we have FINALLY broken free of Old Man Winter's cold grip. Spring is in the air and lots of exciting things are going on at The Roanoke - flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, The Bungalow is OPEN and our Spring Special (stay 3 nights, get the 4th night free) is running all month!
