Mother nature decided to make her presence known, on this last official day of summer.
Soggy, raining conditions blanketed the east, especially at the beach, where folks had to get creative instead of soaking up the sun and the sand.
Only a few brave souls ventured out to play in the rain at the beach, others packed in like sardines at the Aquarium in Pine Knoll Shores to get a look under the sea. Tourists say they were disappointed in Monday's weather but tried to make the most of it
Businesses along the coast, say they also suffered a bit Monday, but were thankful for a busy Saturday and Sunday.
