Carole is a registered nurse who relocated from New Mexico to Crystal Beach. After a career in critical care and administration Carole opted to spend her time at the beach, relaxing to the sight and sound of the gulf. In 2008 Hurricane Ike devastated the peninsula and destroyed 75% of our homes. Out By The Sea sustained substantial damage in excess of $200,000 but remained standing.
Carole experienced the terror of Hurricane Ike first hand and she, two friends and two small dogs were rescued five days later.
You may read more about Hurricane Ike in Carole’s published book, ‘Surviving the Terror…Ike‘, available on line and in local stores.
