In case you did not know a new island formed off of Cape Point in Buxton. I have not had the opportunity to go and check it out until today, July 14, 2017. I spent the afternoon searching for sea glass and shells with my daughter and our friends. We paddled across at low tide from Cape Point on surfboards. The island is pretty large compared to what I imagined. One more reason to visit Hatteras Island! The sunset over the Shelly Island was pretty insane this evening.
