Monday Specials at the Maritime Market - 7/17

Good morning Fellow Islanders!

It's 74 degrees on the front porch this morning, and a late night
thunderstorm brought in a bit of cooler air - a welcome respite from our
relentless heat of late. The winds are light, and the twilight of dawn is
revealing an overcast sky, while the early birds begin their morning songs.
Our summer weather patterns will persist today. We'll see patches of
sunshine, with light southerly breezes and a chance of a shower or
thunderstorm popping up at any time. More likely we'll watch these cells
miss us to the north and south, but occasionally one will hit its mark.
One indicator of how little rain we've actually had are the lagoon levels -
a telltale sign of just how much bark - and how little bite there is in our
weather forecasts. Low tide will occur at about 8:15 this morning, and
high tide will peak around 2:30 this afternoon.

For Breakfast this morning, Chef Marc is preparing a hearty French toast
baguette, with a side of our crispy applewood smoked bacon for only $6.95.
For lunch today, enjoy a crispy fried flounder sub sandwich with our
house made cole slaw for just $9.95. Monday's hot bar theme is "home
cookin'!" You can also order all of our regular menu items
at [1]w[2], and those items will be ready by the time
you arrive.

Delphina and Riverside Adventures will host their weekly Sunset Celebration
tonight, beginning at 5:30 in front of Riverside Adventures with DJ Fray,
face painting, a hula hoop contest, and more. The party then moves over to
West Beach (Access 5) and continues 'till sunset with a bonfire and free
s'mores for the kids. The event is generously sponsored by Bald Head
Island Limited Real Estate Sales.

Monday nights are also "half price appetizer nights" at the Shoals Club for
full members, and the fun takes place on the veranda at Latitudes
overlooking the Cape, with live music and the best views on the island.

Larry Caringer will host an Apple Training class this Tuesday at 9am, and
will focus on iPhones, iCloud and photos. To register, call Larry at
203-209-1196 or email [3] You can also visit his

With the summer season in full swing, the Market's "Family Meals" go flying
out the door, and it's no wonder - there's no better way to feed a crowd on
the go! Family Meals are full and half-pans of your favorite dishes - from
fried chicken and lasagna, to barbecue, shrimp & grits, salads, and much
more. Family Meals should be ordered at least 24 hours in advance, and we
have printed menus in the Cafe, the Market, and on-line. In fact, you can
order your family meals on-line at [5] or just call the
Market at 910-457-7450.

Drop by Turtle Central from 4-6pm on Tuesday night for Turtle Tuesdays,
and enjoy extended shopping hours, special sale events, wine tastings, and
live music :)

The Conservancy's weekly "Turtle Trot" takes place on Wednesday. These fun
runs begin at Turtle Central at 9:30am, with registration beginning at
8:30am, and all proceeds benefit turtle protection efforts.

The next island-wide Litter Sweep will take place this coming Wednesday,
and is co-sponsored by the BHA and by the Conservancy. The sweep will
begin at 10:30am (just after the Turtle Trot), and prizes are given for the
most unusual trash, and prizes for the oldest and youngest participants,
and the first 50 kids bringing in a bag of trash will receive a water gun
:) For more information, please contact Kay Menk - at[6]

The next Friends of Music concert will take place at the Village Chapel on
Friday, July 28, featuring the Watermark Ensemble, and begins at 7:30pm.
The concert is free and open to the public, thanks to the generosity of
many donors and "friends" of music :)

Old Baldy will celebrate National Lighthouse Day during the entire weekend
of August 4-6, beginning with the Old Baldy Buzz on Friday 4th at 4pm. On
Saturday, join your fellow islanders at an incredible 1817 themed dinner.
The evening begins on the lighthouse grounds at 5:30 with North
Carolina-made beers and spirits. The party then moves to the BHI Club for
a fabulous and authentic colonial dinner, with entertainment by the
Folkstone string band. On Sunday, enjoy a "reenactment day" back on the
lighthouse grounds, with a tribute to the Coast Guard, the light keepers,
pirates, Civil war and Old Baldy history. Sunday's events also feature
barbecue, beer & wine, with crafts and games for the kids. The Old Baldy
"Run for the Light" runs (10k, 5k and 1 mile) start at 6pm, and the evening
winds down with a movie projected onto the lighthouse at 8:30pm. For
registration and tickets for any of these events, please go to
