After a particularly hot and humid several weeks on Ocracoke the weather has finally moderated. Temperatures in the last several days have been in the mid 80s, with low humidity...the perfect time for an outdoor gathering!
Yesterday evening Brian Carter and Jamie Tunnell, along with Jamie's parents, hosted a potluck dinner at their home on the old Ammunition Dump Road. Brian and Jamie are getting married in September in Swan Quarter (where Jamie grew up), and they wanted to get together with island friends before the wedding.
The weather couldn't have been any better, the food was delicious, everyone was enjoying pleasant conversations...and several people brought their musical instruments (guitar, fiddle, & banjo). It was a great way to celebrate Jamie & Brian's relationship and to look forward to cooler temperatures and a quieter, more relaxed season.
Best wishes, Brian & Jamie!
