Back on Ocracoke

Perfect beaches, perfect weather.

The storms were still clearing out when we headed back to Ocracoke for another two weeks. The ferry ride over had some of the strangest green waters and stormy skies I’ve ever seen.

The next day the clouds blew away shortly after sunrise and we didn’t have anything but sunshine for nearly two weeks.

The only downside to perfect weather and endless days at the beach is that there’s not much to say about it. We found a routine of working in the mornings and evenings, and spending the day at the beach. It’s a hard life out here, but someone has to do it.

We did spend a bit more time exploring the village of Ocracoke this time. There was a mass transit system running now, which in this case was an extra long golf cart you could ride from one end of the village to the other. Just barely faster than walking the same distance, but the kids loved it. They also somehow talked Corrinne into buying them candy and swords.

Mostly though, we spent two weeks enjoying the weather, the sand, the sea. Aside from food and good company, there’s not much else in life you need.
