Ocracoke, Island

We awoke refreshed and ready to take on the town.  Jeff reconnected with a high school buddy via facebook  who by chance was in town with his family.  We met them for breakfast at the Pony Island restaurant.  The walk was wonderful as the morning was cool and it was less than a mile and it felt good to stretch our legs.  It was fun to meet Mark and his kids.  They gave us some beta about the beaches and offered to come and get us and drive us out.  They did drive us back to the dinghy dock which was nice as the sun was out and heating up the island.

 Patti, my friend from Beaufort, encouraged us to visit the beach via access near the airport.   Dennis, our friend from Straits, always spoke highly of Howard’s Pub.  So, that too was on our radar as a place we wanted to check out.  The airport is just a ways down the road from the Pub.  I was excited to go swimming  in the ocean.

 Bud, Muriel and Shelly rented a golf cart for the day and we headed out to the beach.  Jeff wanted to do some boat projects so just the 4 of us went.  We parked the cart at Howard’s Pub and walked the 1/2 mile to the beach.  It was wonderful.  The sand was so hot that you could see the waves off the surface as if we were in the desert.  The wind and waves were just right.   We had an on shore breeze with gentle rollers that broke on the sand bar with regularity.  It was fun to body surf and I texted Jeff to get here quick as it was a perfect day at the beach.
Needless to say,  the boat projects took longer than expected and Jeff met us at Howard’s for a late lunch.  Thanks to our friends Patti and Dennis we had a grand day!
