This morning started almost eerily quiet. There was no breeze at all, the streets were empty, and a hush blanketed the village. As the day progressed, islanders appeared here and there, as they continued working on last minute preparations for Irene.
Amy, David, & Lachlan were packed and ready to make the trip to David's parents' place in Carrboro, NC.
By 11:30 they were in line waiting for the 12:45 ferry:
Lachlan (in the orange shirt) joined in a picnic with his friends Gretchen, Nicholas, & Charley.
As I write, there is still hardly any wind (less than 5 mph), but Irene is still a long way away. I think I'll go read a book.
