Just in case you've forgotten, the Ocracoke beach in July is super. Yesterday the water was so clear you could stand up to your neck and see your toes. It looked like the Caribbean...bright, blue-green, and sparkling. And the waves were wonderful -- large but gentle, just right for swimming and floating and bobbing about.
Today the waves were larger and a tad rougher, and a stronger littoral current tried to carry us south, and it wasn't as clear, but it was just as warm and fun. Lou Ann likes to squeal and laugh as big waves crash over us. We knew we could come back again soon, so we didn't stay in quite as long today.
Now it's time to do a little work.
