Too Much Sun

A customer remarked moments ago that she'd been to Portsmouth Island today and had gotten "too much sun." Well, I said, too much sun is not the best thing, but it's a heck of a lot better than too much work. She agreed whole-heartedly.

She said what I expected. This was a terrific day to go to Portsmouth. According to her there weren't even any bugs. If you're reading this while on the island, consider a trip across the inlet in the next day or so, before a batch of mosquitoes hatches. A visit to Portsmouth Island is always a treat.

You can read our latest newsletter here. It's about Ocracoke Islanders and "tokens of death."

    In your experience, is the "weren't even any bugs" report something that's in any way predictable down there, especially on Portsmouth Island, based on the seasons or recent weather, or is it purely coincidental?
