Ocracoke islanders do not have home mail delivery, so we make regular trips to the Post Office. The bulletin board in the lobby always includes notices of items for sale, addresses of neighbors in the hospital, public announcements, and so forth. The other day I noticed these two cards, a consequence of Hurricane Matthew. Just another reminder of where we live.
In case you are having trouble reading the notices, this is what they say:
"Boardwalk/Dock in marsh by my house. If you claim it or want it call Pat."
"Floated Away on Oyster Creek 2 - Cedar Adirondack Rockers 1- 2' X 4' X 1' high exterior wood cocktail table Found - 3 Large Planter Pots Please call:"
