Lou Ann and I were off the island all day yesterday (thus no blog). It wasn't a very exciting trip (the main reason to go was my six-month visit to the dentist), but we did get some essential shopping done -- supplies for the Village Craftsmen, a replacement phone cord, a much needed pair of shoes, a few clothes, and some paper products.
We were gone eleven hours (returned home on the 6:30 ferry), but enjoyed the time to be together in the car, chatting and listening to 50s and 60s music on satellite radio. The best part of the trip was standing on the ferry on our way home, feeling the spray nip at our legs, smelling the scent of salt in the air, and watching Ocracoke grow larger as we approached the dock.
It is always good to be home on our little island in the sea.
