In case you haven't visited Bella's Life on the Island blog, now is the time. She is a wonderful local blogger and her site has many thoughtful essays about life on Pleasure Island. In addition, she has a strong eye towards photography and her site has a fantastic collection of Island photos (the photo here is from a post she did today on Fort Fisher Weddings). So check out her blog and make sure to spend some time going over her earlier posts as well...they are all very rich with information and date back to 2006. Just be careful with her Feb 24th post of this year, if you read that one you'll find yourself running down to The Fudge Boat for an immediate fix!
