After days of rain and thunderstorms Ocracoke is finally drying out. Sunday night was clear, with not a cloud in the sky. We spent two hours lying on the beach, marveling at the constellations and the Milky Way, watching shooting stars. We saw about three dozen...a beautiful celestial display.
Monday dawned bright and sunny, a near perfect day. Just right for doing some long-neglected yard work and spending time outdoors. At 6:30 we biked down to the Community Square docks to attend the going-away pot-luck party for Emmet (he will be attending the North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem). We couldn't have asked for better weather! Wishing you all the best, Emmet.
Lou Ann and I ended the day looking at the big dipper from our porch swing, as I played a few traditional tunes on my harmonica.
It's a good life.
