... Sand Plows to keep roads clear!!
Get to the campsite we picked in Frisco and setup just in time for the rain to REALLY start up.. It Pours for 5 hours solid and once again we are flooded in our campsite, no literally we are now camped in a lake (see pics), Luckily the outlook is better for tomorrow so we clean house and watch TV.
Hoping for a nicer day tomorrow so we can explore as this looks like a real nice campground and area!

Time to catch the free 45 min ferry to Hatteras. This one seemed to launch the second we parked our car on it...no messing around here.

... to the car to read my book. I didn't read much I fell fast asleep !!!
After Reg threw in the towel we drove down to Hatteras Village he wanted to see The Graveyard Of The Atlantic Museum we arrived at 4:15pm but it closed at 4:00pm. All in all not a very fruitful day was it ?
Reg- it's been bloody freezing! It's going to be a lot warmer tomorrow,
but chances of thunderstorms.
