Sunday from warm sunny Ocracoke USA

Storey

What a difference a week makes!!  Last week we were buried in snow and this week we are warm, sunny and 56 degrees!!  The girls are thrilled that the snow is gone and the yard is drying up.  After the snow, we had about 2" of rain, so they yard was underwater for a couple of days.......they are not impressed by any kind of wet weather!

It has been a quiet week here, although I did get to go flying in a small prop plane over the island....it was amazing!!  A friend of Chris's took us up in his plane....It makes me realize what a beautiful, fragile, resilliant place I live in.
This afternoon to celebrate the gorgeous weather, we are all heading out to the beach for a walk....then the girls will get to help wash the truck....since it involves water, the probably won't be too enthusiastic about it.  This kind of weather makes me want to get busy in the garden, but I know it is too early & yet I am anxious to see things grow! I am off the get everyone ready for a beach walk.  Hope everyone is having a fabulous day!

This photo is a picture of a small island in the inlet, that has been on the maps since the 1600's!  Amazing.  Tricia, Greyson, Rose ,Willo ,Amelia  & Storey (My Woofs in Sheeps Clothing)

Thank you Tricia, it is a bit early to be thinking of the spring weather. Dry and quite sunny for us today but very cold. I just hope the snow stays away! What amazing photos what is the building on the island. How wonderful to have that amazing beach and shore line to walk the dogs. It must be fantastic on a warm day out of season!

Hello Tricia

What a change a week can make in the weather. Glad to hear your snow didn't last too long and that you are able to take the dogs back to the beach.

Took a look on Google Maps at your Island, certainly a place to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the main land for your tourists in the summer. Bet the drive along the coast road can be a bit hairy at times.

Les, the building on the island is someone's house. They dug a fresh water well there ages ago and it is still in operation. I imagine you could set on the porch of this house and cast you line for fish!

The beach was so gorgeous today, dolphin everywhere in the surf....jumping and playing and spraying water out of their blowholes!
Derek, the drive on our one road off the island can get tricky, since man hasn't found a way to tame the sea. Sometimes you can leave and sometimes you can't, it is all a part of the charm of living here.
