Visiting Rodanthe on Hatteras Island yesterday I stood on the narrow dune that separates the oceanfront from Highway 12. Four months now since Hurricane Sandy passed by, two months since the road and the dune were repaired. Yesterday there did not appear to be much difference from one side of the dune to the other.
I've got a four day weekend starting tomorrow and I wish I could say I will get out on the water. The highest forecast temperature will be 52 degrees Friday, then down to the mid-40's for the next three days, so no sailing (I like to have 60 degrees at least for the first sail on chilly waters.) But I do hope to get a lot done over the weekend, everything from wiring the new trailer lights to cleaning out and repacking Spartina. And most importantly I hope to raise the new sails for the first time.
