Notices at the Post Office advertise community meetings, dinners, & pot lucks. There is also information about music at the Flat Cat Cafe (sponsored by the Ocracoke Youth Center), as well as at local restaurants. Tonight I've been invited to a pot luck dinner at a friend's house (I'll take my usual deviled eggs).
Unfortunately, with family, work, and other responsibilities there just isn't time to take in everything. But I will be enjoying a pleasant evening tonight at the pot luck with other friends. It will be a fitting end to a fantastic day -- sunny & clear with a refreshing breeze. This is one of those all-to-short seasons when we can keep all the doors and windows open day and night without heat or A/C. There is no better sleep than in such a night.
