Monday Specials at the Maritime Market - 7/9
Good Morning Fellow Islanders!
It's 56 degrees on the front porch this morning, and a chilly 48 degrees
just a few miles up the mountain in the higher elevations, with the
breaking dawn revealing clear skies, and a cacophony of birds, crickets,
dogs and roosters echoing through the holler. Back on BHI, it's 70 degrees,
with high wispy clouds and a steady north breeze rustling the palms and
laying down the waves on South Beach. The island will see mostly sunny
skies today, with a persistent north wind and highs reaching the low 80's -
along with a very comfortable humidity that will only drop further tomorrow
- making it feel more like an Indian Summer day than a muggy July one. TS
Chris continues to spin up in the Atlantic and may become a hurricane
before the day is out, but Chris poses no threat to us as it will begin
moving to the northeast in short order. The remnants of Beryl may be
another story. Once a tiny hurricane, Beryl has mostly dissipated, but its
remnants could re-generate in to a depression or Tropical Storm later this
week as the system moves over warmer waters near the Bahamas. Forecast
tracks keep this system far into the Atlantic as well, so no imminent
theats are foreseen, but we could experience a few showers from any
outlying bands. Otherwise, we'll return to our typical summer patterns
beginning on Wednesday, with mostly sunny & warm humid days, with an
isolated chance of showers or thunderstorms through the coming weekend.
Low tide will occur around 9:30 this morning, and high tide will peak at
about 4 this afternoon.
For breakfast this morning, Chef Radar is preparing our Texas-sized French
toast, with a side of country sausage for only $8.95. For lunch today,
Radar is featuring a blue-plate special of our famous fried chicken, along
with roasted red potaoes and slaw for just $10.95, or enjoy a savory French
Dip roast beef sandwich on a baguette with au jus and a side of our
house-made chips for $11.95. Order any item from our regular menu on-line
at www.maritimetogo.com, and your order will be ready when you arrive.
The Apple of Your Island (theappleofyourisland.com) Apple Training
returns to the Bald Head Association this morning at 9am. The general
topic is iPhone Photography, and your iPhone is an amazing camera with a
long list of capabilities. Start getting more from your photos in this 90
minute session. Walk-ins are welcome. However, it’s always nice to know
who’s coming - so register through the website - or call or text Larry
Caringer at: 203-209-1196. As always, you are welcome to bring any Apple
device or question in. While the topic is iPhone Photography, Larry will
gladly help with any questions.
Tonight is half-price appetizer night at Latitudes for full members of the
Shoals Club, so gather your friends and head to the Cape and enjoy this
beautiful weather at Latitudes - with the best views on the island.
The next island-wide Litter Sweep takes place this coming Wednesday, and
after a busy Independence week, the island can use a little tidying up, so
gather your friends and meet at the new Public Safety building on Edward
Teach Wynd at 11am to pick up your grabbers and trash bags. Snacks will be
available, and prizes will be given for the most unusual piece of litter
found. Community Service credit is also awarded.
The BHI Club Championship takes place this coming weekend - from Friday,
July 13 thru Sunday, July 15, and while the Men's Championship Division
features a qualifying round on Friday (at scratch - from the tips), the
rest of us will get the full benefit of our handicaps in the flighted
rounds on Saturday & Sunday. It's a great weekend of golf for all, with
lunch provided on Saturday, so sign up by calling Brian at the pro shop at
Speaking of golf, Joel Dahmen was in the hunt for most of the final round,
and earned his best finish of the year (so far) with a tie for 5th place.
He moves to 108 in FedEx Cup points (Martin Piller stands at 111), and both
are well inside the top 125 to keep their PGA Tour cards for next year -
but more golf is ahead, as Joel and Martin head to the John Deere Classic
this coming weekend. We'll be rooting them on and following them on the
Golf Channel and hopefully on CBS over the weekend. Just look for the
best-dressed guys in the field - both are wearing our performance polos
from Bald Head Blues :)
