Headed to the Outer Banks for the next several days, and there is a lot to get done before then; back the 21st.
Dawn and I have visited the Outer Banks almost each of the past 30-years, and have seen a lot of changes — most seriously, the effects of sea level rise. It’s a beautiful area, and if you’ve never visited you need to do it soon. High tide flooding is now a commonplace, and the rising sea is carving back the beach inexorably. This may be a summer tradition with only a few more years to go.
