Some of our readers have heard about Lou Ann's mishap. Three weeks ago, just as she was sharing one of the last stories on her Ghost and History Walk, two scary creatures jumped out from behind the bushes on Howard Street. Startled, Lou Ann stepped back, stumbled in a pot hole, fell, and broke her wrist. The culprits ran off.
After an ambulance trip to the hospital in Nags Head, and two visits with the orthopedist in Kill Devil Hills (who has a second home on Ocracoke), we are feeling rather confident that the doctor's manipulations and Lou Ann's purple cast will keep her out of the surgery room.
It's no fun to spend the summer in a cast...but things could be worse...and they could be better, too, of course, but Lou Ann is back to work leading her tours. Take a look at our Ghost Tour web site for more information.
