Carteret County News

My new Carteret County Blog

I have been writing about Carteret County for a long time. About eighteen months ago, I started my Daily Record Blog.

As sometimes happens in technology, the weight of the past makes change necessary.

Just as sometimes it is necessary to buy a new computer because your hard drive is too full, I find it necessary to move on to a new blog.

I tried podcasts and movies in my old blog. While they were nice, they slowed updating the blog to the point that I stopped writing for a month.

I plan to get back to regular posts about what I see and hear in Carteret County.

My first snippet of news is that one of my favorite restaurants, The Fairway on Route 58 in Cape Carteret has closed for renovations.

The last 2007 meals were served on Saturday December 22. I had one of my favorites, Pork Supreme. I will have to wait until February 3rd to enjoy some more Fairway cooking.

On another note, I know there are lots of questions about Cannonsgate, the new development on Bogue Sound along Highway 24. I can tell you the project is moving forward and that construction on the Post Office and Clubhouse is progressing daily.

The expectation is that the first homes in Cannonsgate will be under construction early in the new year.

Here are some pictures taken around the beautiful marina. I will be posting more pictures after I get another sunny day.
