It's wonderful to be at the beach, enjoying the waves only 5 minutes from our back door. But it's a different story when we go for a routine doctor's appointment. My friend, Lou Ann, went to see Dr. Redding yesterday in Elizabeth City (her eye is doing great, by the way!).
We left at 6:30 am to catch the 7 o'clock ferry. Arrived in E. City at 11 o'clock (with just two brief stops along the way). After lunch we headed home. We did stop a few times (at a roadside produce stand, a bakery, large hardware store, a pharmacy, a watch repair shop, and of course, for a quick dip in the ocean after getting back on the island). Arrived home at 7:30 pm. A 13 hour trip, primarily for a 15 minute eye appointment!
But it's worth it. We're back home now, enjoying quiet and tranquil Howard Street. Life is good.
