I am up and about more these last couple of days, but still struggling with a lingering cough. I'm hoping the antibiotics will do the trick and defeat this irksome bug.
I didn't venture out much yesterday. It was overcast, rainy (off and on), and chillier than forecast. The forecast calls for even more rain today.
Unfortunately, I missed a meeting yesterday -- "Creating Sustainable Local Economies" sponsored by the NC Rural Center, the Conservation Fund, Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, & Duke University, in partnership with Down East Community News, Hatteras Connection, the Ocracoke Foundation, and Ocracoke Civic & Business Association.
The theme of the meeting centered on community based tourism and developing a creative economy. Special guest was Becky Anderson, founder of "Handmade in America."
Maybe one of our readers attended the meeting and will share some of the highlights.
