Ocracoke, Day IV

Today found us on our 'clown bikes', (Dahon 16" folding mariners) riding to the beach. It was beautiful, empty, the water still a little chilly. We walked for an hour or so, then stopped at the seafood market on the way home and picked out some fresh clams and Red Drum (a white fish) to make some chowder for dinner. The cabana boy is kneading dough as I type, so we'll have fresh bread to go with it. Having a cabana boy around is certainly handy and I highly
recommend it.
There were several bus loads of high school age kids on the island today and so for a few hours the anchorage was filled with brightly colored kayaks. The kids were yelling and laughing, splashing each other and playing bumper cars. Very entertaining to watch.
