ginger harper of southport: Beautiful Sunset over the Creek - 12/18/14 06:51 PM

 
 
WE have the most beautiful sunset over Beaver Dam Creek in Southport NC.
We enjoy the Ibis, Herons, Cranes, and gulls on the end of the dock.  We have kayaks in the water to scoot around in the creek.  What a glorious place to live.
When we get tired of that, we go and walk on the ocean.  Our beaches are still undeserted and we can enjoy the shore with all of the living things that live there.
 
Come and see for yourself

The House looks amazing for the Christmas Holidays. 
 
We have a lot of fun Dressing it for Christmas.  This house is the Norment House in Southport and was built in 1913, therefore a hundred and one year old structure.  Builders sure do not build them like they used to.  The house is solid as a rock.  The rooms are large and roomy with space to wonder around and enjoy privacy.
 
The history of the house is amazing with the different families that were raised in the home. I know some of … (3 comments)

This is such a great idea and everyone can do this.
YOu get this great feeling in your heart when you do something for someone else and it is not expected.
It can be as simple as letting a car get in line that is stuck on a side road; smiling a someone with a frown on their face; letting someone get in line in front of you when they have only one or two items and you have a basketfull;
 
I sit in the evenings and make afgans for the folks in our local Nursing Center,  I make … (8 comments)

ginger harper of southport: Is Social Media the Bane of our Existence? - 06/16/14 05:46 AM

I think that the Social Media has a place in our world but we have to be careful not to make it the Main part of our existence.
So may people right now, use the social media in unhealthy ways.  There are many folks that are airing their personal grievences in public for the world to see right not. 
This is a person thing that needs to be kept in private.
Just remember that when you put it on the Socail Media..it becomes a world wide exposure.
The evolution of social media woes

ginger harper of southport: Baby Boomers Are Not Downsizing? - 06/13/14 11:17 AM

We are finding the same thing happening in the Southport Oak Island Area of Brunswick County.
We are located on the coast of North Carolina right at the mouth of the Cape Fear River.
 
It is a beautiful Coastal Community that offers the Ocean, Rivers, Creeks and Lakes. 
 
We are finding that many of our buyers now, as they grow older, are wanting smaller more compact homes to live it.  They do not want a lot of company that keeps them working, cooking and cleaning for those that are wanting a free stay at the Beach..LOL

ginger harper of southport: There is no place like home! - 10/29/13 06:24 PM

Here is a wonderful Fall picture of the Wooden Boat Show that is held in Southport North Carolina once a year.  This is a show where many craftsmen build a wooden boat that is tried and proven in the waters around the area in the Cape Fear River, The Intra-Coastal Waterway or the Atlantic Ocean. 
Many of the carpenters, have a dream and envision the building of their dream boat.  They have a passion for doing something special that will be one of the most memorable thing that they would ever do.
There are so many  wonderful things that happen … (6 comments)

ginger harper of southport: Blueberry Topping - 10/24/13 07:43 PM
 
 
Yesterday, my husband and I had to buy a new freezer and had to clean out the old one in  the process.  We came up with about 10 gallons of BlueBerries that we had picked over the past few year. Much too many to keep in the freezer.  Therefore, I decided to make BlueBery topping that works well on Ice Cream, Cake and Toast. 
So last night I am cooked  them to make the topping, which consitst of the BlueBerries, Sugan, lemon juice and 1/2 stick of butter.  All you do then, is cook until they become thick.  Then  we put … (6 comments)

ginger harper of southport: Fall Brings Fishermen and Buyers - 10/23/13 07:26 PM
Fall is bringing us some buyers, finally.  It seems that we have been all frozen out of the real estate market but in the past week or so, buyers are returning to our quiet shores once again. 
Fishing is good right now off the piers of Oak Island and surf casting has always been a favorite of mine, especially on East Beach on Bald Head Island.  A couple of years ago, I caught a 42 pound Drum.  What a treat.  Problem being that the fish was too big to keep according to NC Wildlife and Fisheries.  We had to throw him … (0 comments)

We in Brunswick County, North Carolina are having a hard time feeding our needed.  We have food banks opened up to feel those in the County that are hungry.  There seems to be so many folks that are in need right now. I have gone to our church and we are asking for our congregation to help us fill up the shelves with food.
