Labor Day visitors to the Crystal Coast's Atlantic Beach were not deterred by Tropical Storm Ernesto or predictions of afternoon showers. Despite heavy rains last week and continuing flooding, this holiday weekend brought droves of visitors from Eastern Carolina and neighboring states. Greenville resident Matthew Taylor said he was determined to enjoy the beach, no matter what the weather. Vickie Stewart and her family drove ten hours from West Virginia to visit Atlantic Beach as part of their bi-annual tradition.
