Neva May

On this date in 1886 the 3-year-old schooner "Neva May" (George Howard, owner and master) was stranded in Pamlico Sound, near Hatteras Inlet. $3,000.00 worth of pine lumber was removed from the deck. The six crew members and one passenger remained on board. It took four days and many hours of hard labor for the station crew to refloat the vessel.

Interestingly, the "Neva May" was stranded in almost the same place two years earlier.

Today the weather is cool, but sunny and clear. No signs of shipwrecks. No signs of much of anything today. Just beautiful fall weather and lots of quiet.
