Shower with a Friend

One of the joys of summer on Ocracoke is the outdoor shower. Nearly every rental cottage has one, and most islanders do also.

Recently three tree frogs have taken up residence on the shelf in our shower. They are shy, and hang out behind the shampoo bottles. Often they are clinging to the side. If we rotate the bottle they move in the opposite direction, but they are persistent. Sometimes they only hop off after vigorous shaking of the plastic bottle.

I guess they like the daily shower as much as we do!

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter relates the story of the prohibition-era rum runner Messenger of Peace that brought much pleasure to the residents of Portsmouth. You can read it here:

    They love the park service campground showers. It's always "shower with a friend" day there, at least after dusk!
