Arrived stupid early.  I was able to fill up on propane at Camp Hatteras.  We stopped at Access Point 26 and we were off on our first three miler!



The next morning an infant roll cloud, illuminated by the just rising sun, floated over us:



PPPPWWWWEEEEZZZZEEEEE can we go for walk????



Scary clouds!



Sunny deck



My response, too, but I didn't take a picture:



Last month I included a couple of pictures of a home on Ocean View drive that was moved about fifty feet.  Ocean View has a HORRIBLE problem with ocean over wash during storms.  Here it is a month later.

What is that I hear?  Is that a contractor's voice?  Sounds like an echo!  Sounds like, "It'll be done in a month!"  Weird.  I hear it but see no contractor.  Just like at my place.  They are really great guys but you never can rely on any of them.

There is new wood so they must be planting it there.

Contractors arrived later in the week:  They are planting it right there!



He saw a big crab go down a hole.  Dunno how deep they go!



I was visited by a crow that seemed to know that if he asked, I would provide him with something to eat.




This is summertime on the beach, as crowded as crowded gets on the National Park beach:
