  1. Looks like a windy day at the OIB – thats ok….a windy day at the beach is better than a great day at work!

  2. Can’t wait to look at the beach cam in a cople of days and see Kim and Lorna serving up ice cold refreshing drinks! Just wish I was on the other side sitting there drinking one up.

  3. The beach webcam has gone missing again!

  4. Sorry Jim, the camera was taken out in a lightning storm a few weeks ago, and we got it back up and running. But now we’re installing a new safer system so it won’t happen again! We hope to have it back up and running asap!

  5. Hello Thirsty Tiki! Wish I was sitting and drinking with you on opening day!

    We didn’t get to come in 2016 either. Health problems kept us away. We started coming in 2005; I think. We love the peace and quiet so we come in spring before schools get out. We hope we can get our health in line to get there in the spring.

  13. Melonie Byrnes says:

    oh my what a good feeling to end a very hectic day! Such a nice idea . Really can’t wait until sept when we can be down there again.

  14. Is the Tiki Bar open to the general publc?

  15. Cindy, no it is for guests only. We are a little more lenient in the off-season for non-guest visitors, but from May-October it is for guests only.

  16. Carol Hoxsie says:

    Is the camera going to stay stationary? It was nice to see all the different areas of the beach. To see just the swimming pool and a little ocean to the West shows little of what the scenery is all about. It would be nice to be able to go to the different places. Is that going to be possible again?

  17. Carol,
    I apologize that the camera view options don’t seem to be working. I have contacted the support company to look into the problem. We hope to have it fixed soon! Thank you for letting us know about this. We hope you’ll keep using the beach camera!

  18. Claire Gritzinger says:

    Will be at the Tlki Bar in a few weeks! Get that MIc Ultra cold, Kim and Lorna! Jim will be looking for it. Would be nice if Carman were there, too – wine and cheese Thursdays – so fun!

  19. Carman says:

    Hey Claire and Jim! We will be there May 24! Hope to see y’all too!!!

  20. Carman

    Sorry we’re going to miss you this time – we were there the end of April. Hope to see you next time. Enjoy!!!

  21. James Mullis says:

    Everytime I see your email I smile because I get to see the beach. This time you showed more views, not just the pool view. Fabulous!!! Going to try to make a trip your way this summer or fall. Thanks for the view!

  22. Memorable everything!

  23. I just saw on camera one of the cats we made friends with when we stayed there in October. I needed that, very cool! LOVE IT!!

  24. Rosebud says:

    Even though it’s raining in OIB, I still love being able to visit there every time I receive one of your emails. Makes me wants to transform myself right there. It’s been so many years ago since we were there but all of us have such fond memories of the place and the people. I only wish The Italian Fisherman was still there. We had delicious meals there. Anyone know what happened to the owners or to the restaurant? Keep posting the cam for us. We all love it.

  25. Joyce Winiewicz says:

    Loved the Tiki Bar when we were there. My husband set me there for ice, we ended up just sitting and sipping great drinks! Can’t wait to come bacl

  27. Lee Williams says:

    My husband and I have stayed at the resort several times. Each time being better than the last. We absolutely love this place. Would and have recommended several people. We have even treated a couple with a stay at the resort with us and they had an absolute BALL too.

  28. Suzanne and Larry Wright says:

    We aren’t really “sitting on the beach” type people, The Winds is perfect for those who are, though.

    We are “love to see the sun rise and set”—type of people….to see all the various colors in all the various angles……how the “off season” at the beach paints a different, but exquisite view of God’s nature at the beach…..ever since we discovered The Winds several “off seasons” ago.

    We’ve loved the smaller numbers of people… they seemed more relaxed, in their not seeming to want to rush to the ocean, but enjoy the still varied opportunities available in the off-season.

    However, THE best part of The Winds is how each season—“off” or “not”—is a perfect time to make happy memories at The Winds.

  29. I look at this almost everyday. We love ocea OIB. We come every year. See you in October!

  30. Hi, there! Sure wish I was at the Tiki Bar right now!

    Is Kim still the bartender (we were last there in 09/2013)? We would go to The Winds every year in September but haven’t been able to go since then.

    Miss The Winds VERY much. Have a glass for us.

  31. Hope to see you later this month in September or October. I want to come back to celebrate the end of chemotherapy and soak up the sun and just look out at the ocean.
