September on Hatteras Island

Pam - Well, I just realized that neither of us has made an entry in the blog in almost a month, so, I'm going to update you on September in OBX!  It seems like as soon as Labor Day came and went, someone flipped the switch and fall was in the air!  It got very chilly here and the winds started blowing out of the Northeast.  For you mainlanders, that means the wind is coming in off the ocean and it is raw and cold.  The AC is off in the trailer and the windows and doors are open - great sleeping weather, but no sunbathing!  Did I mention winds are 15-20 mph???  Not such good weather for Mike to ride, but he was still out there peddling away.  He's putting up astronomical mileage, but I will let him tell you about that......  Anyway, we have been enjoying local happenings.  We went down to Hatteras for Day at the Docks.  All about honoring and teaching us about the people who work in fishing - which is the life blood of this island.  Then we went to the Chicamacomico Banks Fire Department annual chili cookoff.  Good food, good music and GOOD FRIENDS.  Oh, yes....then one day we went down to Hatteras to visit the Graveyard of the Atlantic museum.  That's when I took the picture of Mike - no, he wasn't having a stroke, it's just his pirate face!!!

As you can tell, we are relaxed, happy, and enjoying retirement!!
