It is getting cooler on Ocracoke as October ushers us into fall weather. I have been enjoying these brisker, less humid days, and I was recalling the hot, sometimes oppressive summer days. I was reminded of something Elizabeth Parsons told me about the summer of 1952. It was so hot and humid, she remembered...and no one had air conditioning. Even with the windows open, and fans humming, it was almost impossible to sleep.
Finally, Elizabeth's entire family carried their sheets and pillows out to the beach where they lay down under the stars next to the surf, lulled to sleep by the sound of the breakers and a gentle breeze.
