Sandy Lane

Every morning I sit at my desk for a few minutes, and look across my front yard. This is my view...a sandy lane bordered by cedars and pines, and a picket fence.

It is a tranquil way to start my day.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is a video of Philip Howard telling the story of the 1861 wreck of the Black Squall. You can watch it here:

    As I read your blog this morning, I looked out the kitchen window to see turkey, hawks, and squirrels in the orchard. It was very tranquil as well. We all need " a little Howard Street" wherever we live. Thanks for reminding us all of blessings.
