We live about 8 miles from the inlet, the no-see-ums are only bad during certain times. All the afternoon rains the last few weeks have made it one of those times. They are worse in the SP than they are in the County Park (Long Point) just on the other side of the inlet.
The inlet is very scary as the water comes in and out of the river to the ocean at high or low tides. It can even scare you in a power boat. There have been occasions that we have had to use full power to get out to the ocean.
The power in both parks is terrible, you almost need a voltage regulator. Both parks are nice, but I prefer Long Point. During the winter the county residences can't even use the park as it is full with all of our friends from the north.
Come enjoy our beaches and sunshine, both are free (beaches and sunshine, not the parks).
