Headed to Avon for 2.5 weeks In October. Oceanfront home across from Frank and frans. Does anyone know if the dunes are real steep on the oceanside. Hard to tell from pics.
Thanks for the info. We are basically in front of Frank and frans. For the first 2 weeks of OctoberIn Avon, the dunes north of the Avon pier are still pretty much intact and fairy steep when we stayed in north Avon the last week of October and first week of November last year. The dunes south of the pier were pretty much gone after some storms in the spring of 2018 and then Hurricane Florence last fall, but they were building those back up as of April and May this year. We've been staying in a couple beach front houses in Avon the past several years, one about 1/4 or so north of the pier and one in south Avon across from the Food Lion shopping center. About 25% of the houses on the north side of Avon have built up walk ways but most have sand paths to the beach. Starting 15 October you can drive on the beach there in Avon if you have a 4WD vehicle but, you'll also need a ORV permit which you can get at the Cape Hatteras lighthouse ranger office.
Thanks for the reminder, I'll be trying to get to Hatteras asap tomorrow afternoon and I sure don't need to donate to the trooper fund.From the house up in Rockingham Co., north of Greensboro, I can be crossing the new Bonner Bridge (I know is called Bassnight but it will always be the Bonner to me) in 5.5 hours, doing the speed limit to +5. Add another 45 minutes to Avon.
Watch out when you leave Columbia and get on that stretch of 64 going through East Lake and into Manns Harbor, as the troopers are hot and heavy on that stretch all the time. On Hwy 12 south the Dare County deputies have been pretty thick on it the last 2 or 3 months.
