The temperature has dropped twenty degrees...and it's windy. It sure feels like fall. But we all know it's just temporary. Unfortunately, one of my jobs for today is to power wash the outside shower behind the Village Craftsmen. I'm not looking forward to it, but we have a new summer employee coming tomorrow, and I want to clean things up around here.
We apologize for not posting these last several days. As Jude mentioned last week, we've been very busy. Among the many things going on was the annual Memorial in honor of all of the men and women who were killed protecting our shores in WWII, and especially the crew of the HMT Bedfordshire that was sunk offshore on May 11, 1942. As many of our readers know, four of these sailors are buried on Ocracoke in the British Cemetery. The Memorial is always a moving experience.
