Tomorrow they're coming back to do the one downstairs :)

We came back from Shackleford and went off for Crisp & I to go diving only to find that the dive boat has canceled the trip this afternoon because the weather offshore is too rough. We could have gone for a full days diving tomorrow, but Crisp has his heart set on the Parasailing we have booked for tomorrow morning and we may not be able to reschedule that coz of the impending hurricane! Anyway if we go to Tobago next summer we can do lots of diving there. It does mean we can join the others for lunch on the boardwalk, and there's talk of jetskis this afternoon!

We've had a pretty good day! Breakfast at Mike's, a quick trip to the grocery store, romping on the beach in the surf, and dinner at the Crab Shack. We had a wicked thunderstorm for about 1/2 an hour this afternoon as well.
Tomorrow morning we're taking the first ferry to Shackleford Banks, and then after lunch Crisp and I are going diving :)
This is our house from the beach- it gets pretty dark around here.
