I am hoping that Jude, Dallie, & Dale will take turns keeping you informed about the island while I am gone. Maybe my daughter, Amy, will write occasionally, too. And maybe my friends from the mountains will add a post now and then. If they miss a few days here & there, please be patient.
It's always hard to leave Ocracoke, but I am looking forward to seeing Lou Ann and my other grandchildren, and being in the mountains in the fall. I'll be back in early October.
