Not only has the "season for visitors" begun (just note the numbers of bicycles, cameras, straw hats, and kayaks to be seen in the village), but today is also the official start of hurricane season. We can only hope that the Outer Banks will be spared this year.
At any rate, today is sunny and beautiful. No prospect of storms of any kind. Just an opportunity to stretch out in the hammock, relax and enjoy island life.
