The morning was so beautiful and calm before the waves of Tropical Storm Bret swing around, that we decided to take Philip's boat out into the sound, Blackbeard's decapitating area! I said it would be great to take a 'spin' around the harbor, but was nicely corrected into saying that it would be a 'scud' around the harbor.
The morning was lovely with barely a breeze. Philip's boat is an old Ocracoke tradition and one of the last surviving wooden Carolina skiffs. He has restored it and the boat waits patiently tied up at the dock waiting for the Captain or other family members to take a scud!
It was a beautiful morning leaving all the chores behind us.
