No beach walk for me today....but yesterday was terrific, in spite of the wind. The ocean was not quite wild looking, but almost. The waves were big and full of white water. I entered the water tentatively, thinking the current would be strong. I was mistaken. It was warm and inviting. Maybe not perfect, but quite pleasant. And....no one in sight in either direction! Almost like Ocracoke used to be. Not a bad place to live, especially in 2004, even if I've got to work now and then.
