These are the kinds of days that boost people's spirits. Temperatures are in the upper 60s/low 70s, there's only a whisper of a breeze, and sunlight is dappling white picket fences. Yesterday, author Susan Sully stopped by for a visit. My house is one of 17 houses featured in her book, The Southern Cottage. She was here scouting out other houses for an upcoming magazine article. We visited three island homes, all of which were decorated with a decidedly creative flair. The light was perfect for taking a few preliminary snapshots. When the article is published I'll let our readers know.
Speaking of magazines, the October issue of Our State has an article about the upcoming Ocrafolk School by islander Sundae Horn. The same issue has an article about eastern North Carolina ghost walks, including our very own walk.
