It sure has been quiet here since Thanksgiving. Most of the side roads are more like foot paths, there's so little traffic. Unlike summertime, nearly every vehicle you see sports a Hatteras Inlet ferry priority sticker. Just the other day I saw Vince and Sue walking down Howard Street. None of us was in a hurry, so we just stopped to chat, then walked along together talking about family, current events, and stories from the past. This is a relaxing time of year.
Even though it's quiet right now, there are lots of community activities scheduled for the next several weeks. Take a look at yesterday's post for details.
