A few visitors were enjoying the island this weekend. Amy and I noticed quite a few out of state cars on Saturday as we walked through the village. In the winter it's unusual to see vehicles without priority stickers on their windshields (they are the small square decals that allow residents priority loading on the Hatteras Inlet ferries). Then we remembered that this was a long weekend.
Most of the visitors will be gone by mid-afternoon today, leaving us to enjoy a few more weeks of isolation and quiet before the beginning of a new season in the spring.
Happy Presidents Day to all of our faithful readers!
