A storm cell passed by earlier this morning, with lightning in the distance and thunder rolling languidly through the humid air. The sand in the driveway is so dry and powdery. We were hoping for a cooling rain to nourish the trees & shrubs, but it was not to be. Now the sun is shining brightly. Lou Ann and I are looking forward to taking Karen out on a sunset cruise after work with Captain Rob on the schooner Windfall. Maybe we'll even treat ourselves to dinner at the Back Porch restaurant tonight. I think Karen is finding Ocracoke an interesting and creative place.
