Weekends are transition days on Ocracoke. Most cottages rent from Saturday to Saturday, or Sunday to Sunday, so the island is quieter on the weekends. It's a pity, since the weather is so nice today -- the perfect beach day. I haven't been yet. This morning was my time to straighten the house and do some house cleaning (the grandchildren went back to the mountains early this morning -- we had a grand time). I also watered the new front yard garden, helped David cut some lumber, did the laundry, and worked on a few stories. I believe I'll putz around the house a bit more, maybe take an afternoon nap, and then head for the beach later in the afternoon when it's not so hot.
