I debated whether to keep this blog open, but I couldn’t let it go. There are so many wonderful things about this island that I still want to share, so we’re back in business. This blog is more or less a journal of mine living in the island with a few treats about other traveling destinations that I take or hear about and it’s so much fun to talk about travel.
Today it’s cold, but not as cold as the rest of the country so I should feel blessed, right? We haven’t had any snow to speak of yet. A flurry or two and I really had to look hard to see it. Not that I’m knocking it. Walking the dogs has become a chore with the wind blowing off the water. I made the feral cats hanging around a couple of shelters – one made with a trash can turned on its side and the other one with an old styrofoam cooler. Black and white mama cat loves the cooler. I think it’s a tad warmer than the trash can even though I have lined the inside with a warm blanket and covered the outside with a tarp wrapped securely to keep out rain. Why do I do what I do for these guys is beyond me. I guess I feel sorry for them especially when it’s bitterly cold out there.
Traffic on the island is slower than usual but you’ll get an occasional tourist or two wandering about. Nothing much keeps them from walking the streets downtown even in rain. I like to see them; it makes the island look less deserted.
The locals are free now to run out to the store without getting behind scooters and bicycles. It won’t be long before tourist season begins all over again.
I’m mainly cooped up in the house until this weather gets better. I have my work online to do so that keeps me busy while I wait for the island to thaw. This weekend, my girlie friends and I are going to Bill’s for lunch, let them shop in town and do the bonding thing. I can’t wait. I haven’t seen any of them since before Christmas and I really miss them.
Time to get back to work but I wanted to send an update through. If you are a Chincoteague blogger and you want to connect, leave me a comment and I’ll visit your blog!
Until next time,
