    Mrs Henry and I apologise for being offline for a bit. Circumstances conspired, about which more in a minute.

    But first to alarming news from Old Mr Henry, temporary custodian of the Mr Henry Institute while Mrs Henry and myself do the hard grind of international travel. Old Mr Henry emailed us that he'd had no response from Frank yet, but that it’s early days. More worryingly, he noted, was that he had received representations from numerous US donors to the Mr ...

    ... Wild horses used to run freely on the island, they got there from a shipwreck in colonial times. In the olden days you could catch them running on the beach at sunset and the boy scouts initiation including wrangling and riding one of the horses. Once the highway was built they caught all the horses and put them in a large reserve area so they wouldn't get hit by cars- or at least that was the excuse, stupid humans are always trying to cage wild animals.

Included were many Revolutionary and Civil War era soldiers, a British soldier buried standing up so he could salute the King, and a young girl who ...

    ... clearly the preferred flavour. Oh yes, and the overly friendly ducks also found our toes quite delectible. By the time we had finished our meal - and I must admit, we ate faster and faster as it went on - we were well and truly ready for the mad dash back to our motel and to the sanctuary of a room fortified by mosquito nets.

    Day 7

    A travel blog entry by gazelle on Sep 06, 2007

    Ate brekkie and headed off with Sue and Barbara to the ferry. Stopped at Red Drum for coffee and chocolate. Took pictures on the ferry, and arrived in Ocracoke 40 minutes later. Stopped to see the famous Ocracoke ponies! Went to Barefoot Bohemian for 2 Flying Spaghetti Monsters! Went to the British Cemetery, and Candyland for some fudge. Then to Silver Trading Co. and Java Books for a Milky Way (double ...
