Every summer the turtles nest on the Oak Island beach. Every morning someone tours the beach looking for turtle tracks. The nests are located on GPS, then obscured until they are ready to hatch. 159 nests so far, this year, with an average hatch of 120 per nest. On their due date, a trail is created to the water and and the hatch boil is protected. The odds of each baby turtle reaching maturity and returning to nest are 1 in 20,000, but at least we get them started.
St. James Plantation offers something for all of the important people in your life, no matter their age. Most children have a natural curiosity about water and wildlife. When my grandchildren visit St. James, we engage in many activities to satisfy that innate curiosity. The Intracoastal Waterway is right at your fingertips when you live here, and my favorite little anglers think that it is an excellent fishing spot. Alex and I are happy and very proud of our big catch.
Kayaking is a must-do activity when my grandchildren visit St. James. Not only is kayaking an excellent workout, but it is also a great way to explore the surrounding waterways. Plus, kayaking may be something they otherwise might not have a chance to do. One thing I like most about living here is the opportunity to create special connections and memories with my family.
The beautiful beaches of Oak Island are a short drive from St. James. The sand, surf, and sun provide a great backdrop for play and relaxation. As you can see below, my dearest beach lovers had a great time playing in the water. Don’t forget that the St. James Beach Club is open for the season. Everybody in my family enjoys the pool, showers, restrooms, designated parking, and dining areas during family visits.
I am already looking forward to the next time my grandchildren visit St. James.
I hope you have the opportunity to enjoy some summertime fun with your family.

The beach club pool is open and the ocean water temperature is 70 degrees and rising. The beach is wide and not at all crowded. Great place in the evening to watch the sunset, have a cool beverage and maybe a pizza.
