44 Carolina Nautical
Embark on a maritime journey through a
contemporary Carolina Beach home that
captures views of a bustling downtown
harbor and nearby Snow’s Cut. Outside
and indoors, the home’s architecture and
décor are inspired by luxury ocean liners.
From the smokestack chimney to the ship’s
steam whistle announcing arrivals and
departures, authenticity abounds.

64 Meditations in Color
Bradley Carter’s style varies from abstract
to impressionist to whimsical, but no matter
the piece or the series his vibrant, layered
paintings have something in common.
They all demonstrate an emotional relation-ship
and a sense of intimacy.

The ancient craft of charcuterie involves
the principles of curing, salting, smoking
and preserving. When combined with
cheese, pickled vegetables, and bread,
meat prepared this way makes a meal that
is bliss on a board. By Colleen Thompson

27 Marines for Thanksgiving
Every family has different Thanksgiving traditions.
Some spend hours cooking the perfect turkey-and-all-
the-trimmings meal. Others play a family-and-friends
football game in the backyard., or gather to
watch the sport on TV. And some Wilmington-area
families open their homes to young Marines.

36 Kure Beach Pier
The Kure Beach Pier is the oldest fishing pier on the
East Coast. The pier serves as the heartbeat of the
town, its history and lineage as interesting as the
man who built it and the successors who reshaped,
rebuilt, and even rebranded this destination.
