Looks like Irene may have some impact on our travels to OBX Saturday. Sad This may make it easier, as owners, they used to tell us to come and bring candles and drinks. The renters are told to leave. During Dennis we drove straight in, everyone was going the other way. Hilarious! We made landfall in Kitty Hawk the same time he landed in Oak Island, 60-75 miles away. Blinking But we are not residents. Confused so last year during mandatory evacuation we were told to leave. I still think if we'd have just hunkered down and waited no one would have bothered us. *Blush* I think if they let us in on Saturday, we'll be there. Smiling Ric

I was thinking about you two when I heard about Irene and wondering when you were leaving for the beach! If you get "stuck" between here and there, the guest room is always available. I can't guarantee that it's clean though. Let me rephrase that...I'll guarantee it's NOT clean! Rolling on the floor laughing

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Great it will feel just like home. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing
Just said to Ric the other day "Man I have got to start working on the house" All summer long I just throw things in the empty bedrooms and close the door. It's getting so that you can hardly get into those rooms anymore.

You can wade through it though. We need that guy from Oprah to come and teach us to declutter. *Blush* We are both pack rats and after 30+ years, we have a lot of pack. Whistling It's terrible, as soon as I get rid of something in the barn, I wish I had it for a project. Rolling on the floor laughing Ric

Don't think we will be leaving for the beach today. The Town of Duck is closed to visitors till tomorrow. Residents, owners and those assisting them can come in today. We are technically owners as we own our timeshare but I don't think that is quite the same as owning a beach house. We will be calling down to our place a bit later and seeing if we can get in today.

They closed the resort for the week, this is actually a good thing as we get credited for a week that way. It just is unfortunate since most of the family planned to be there this week into Monday or so. Sad Ric

From what I've seen on the news, it will be a long time before that barrier recovers from the storm, as well as the connecting inland towns.

That Island is really long. I was coming back up from Savannah one time and wanted to go over there to spend a few days and had planned to take the ferry. Well, I got there too late and had to drive all the way up to New Bern and come back down. it was quite a long detour. Thumbs down

Ocracoke? These Indian names are charming but sure hard to spell. Oh, I know, you can get really messed up trying to navigate around the Chesapeake. When we are sailing, some of the bridges are only raised on the hour and if you are just 2 minutes late, you have to sit in the channel and wait another hour for the next raising. If a big storm squall blows through, you can get washed aground. I've had it happen, no fun. I took the ferry once as a kid. I wonder if they still run it.
