This afternoon I am expecting a visit from my brother. The weather is looking fine, so maybe he'll want to walk on the beach, or just sit on the pizer and read until I get off work. Amy & David & Lachlan are coming over this evening with their house guest, Jule, from Berlin, to join us for a boiled shrimp dinner. Tomorrow some other cousins are planning to come to the island also and we'll have a larger family gathering for dinner and chatting about old times. Blanche says she's coming too, so we'll have our "keeper of island traditions and family lore" to help keep our stories straight.
This month's newsletter discusses the planned replacement of the seven bridges on Ocracoke Island in early 2008, and explains some of the issues we will face. You can read it here.
