Low humidity

On Saturday we went to Springer's Point for a quick outing. It was cold and windy out there, but the view of Portsmouth Island was crystal clear. We could even see the distinct outlines of houses. The water was also very calm, lapping gently up on the shore near our feet.

    Philip, I am amazed you could see Portsmouth Island from Springer's Point w/out binoculars. I'm impress.

    I know I couldn't see Portsmouth Island from Springer's Point in October. Dew points have been extremely low this week, that's for certain.

    I adore that part of the island. What a treasure Springer's Point is for all to enjoy!

    What a good way to get some exercise on such a chilly day!

    Saturday (Friday also) I was sitting in a Duck Blind off Cedar Island, looking that way also and watching the ferries moving slowly across the sound. And wishing I was on the one heading to Ocracoke! It was really clear on Saturday, except for the brief snow shower that came through about 1PM. Happy New Year - Nollie

    To the blogger sitting in the duck blind...don't you sometimes just want to be a duck and fly across the sound to Ocracoke Island????

    If it was only that easy!
