A Topsail Island Tradition Since 1975 The Andrewsâ¤™ Produce Stand in N. Topsail Beach For nearly 40 years, the Andrews family has been selling produce and other locally grown goodies at the corner of Island Drive and 2nd Avenue in N. Topsail Beach. It all started around the time that Onslow County native, James Andrews (pictured below), built a beach home on 2nd Ave in N. Topsail Beach back in the 70 s.Â James and his wife, Barbara, (pictured below) started selling their own homegrown tomatoes, corn, and a few squash and zucchini on the property in 1975. Until her recent passing earlier this year, Mrs. Barbara canned several items, like pickled beets, which kept loyal customers coming back every season.
Topsail Island Sea Turtles Return Home The New Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center isÂ Now Open to the Public! What a sight to behold was the recent Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Centerâ¤™s â¤˝turtle releaseâ¤ in Surf City, NC! Monday, June 2, 2014, was a beautiful day to attend my first ever â¤˝turtle graduation,â¤ as some Sea Turtle Hospital volunteers proudly dubbed the festivities. Additional releases took place Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of this week. Honestly, Iâ¤™m not sure if it was the fact that I am pregnant myself, or if there was more to it than that, but I became quite emotional as I approached the staging area and saw nearly a dozen turtles cradled in the arms of caring volunteers. Each one I approached proudly showed off the turtle (whether small or large) in their care.
