The Qualification ( drum inlet )


sometimes you need good friends to achieve your dreams........

What i learned this weekend
not an easy task to take pictures and videos in windy condition:)

“Drum Inlet is an inlet of the Outer Banks in the U.S. state of North Carolina. It connects the Core Sound with the Atlantic Ocean and separates Portsmouth Island from the Core Banks. The core banks consists of, from north to south, North Core Bank or Portsmouth Island, Middle Core Bank, and South Core Bank or Davis Island. Old Drum Inlet separates Portsmouth Island from Middle Core Bank, which in turn is separated from Davis Island by New Drum Inlet. Old Drum Inlet is a natural inlet while New Drum inlet was dynamited into existence by the Army Corps of Engineers. Ophelia inlet, named after the hurricane that created it, severed about a mile off of the northern tip of Davis island. Over the winter of 2008-2009, all of the inlets shoaled and closed up, middle core bank merged with north core bank, leaving only Ophelia inlet."
