Last night I heard that a dredge began working at Hatteras Inlet yesterday.
According to the official NCDOT website (Saturday, Mary 12, 2012): "Hatteras ferry operations have resumed as of 3:15 pm. Taking light loads. [Call] 252.986.2353 for more [information]."
The extra runs from Swan Quarter will continue through Monday.
The weather has been superb, bright skies and mild temperatures. I went for a walk on the beach last night right at dusk. I wondered why I don't make that a regular part of my day. It was so quiet and peaceful.
This morning three blue jays have been flitting about in my yard. Life is good!
