It's another great beach day. Bright sunshine....soft sand....a mild breeze. As usual, it may be prudent to be aware of the possibility of rip currents. But Tropical Depression Beryl passed us by with no more than empty threats. So we go about our lives as before.
Tonight we'll enjoy another Opry performance at Deepwater Theater. Lou Ann has put together "Miss Maggie Mae's Radio Hour" for the show. Well actually it's only ten minutes long, but it includes vintage ads from the island, local news from the 1940s, traditional Ocracoke recipes, and a cliff-hanger serial (Was that a gunshot we heard? What happened to John....and Marcia? Tune in next week!). Be sure to spend a Wednesday evening at the Opry on your next visit. It's a barrel of fun, terrific music, and quite entertaining.
