  1. I hope that when they do the new lay-out of the Variety store, they don’t move the fish mural outside the front door! That is a beautiful painting. I am a “tourist.” We try to get to Ocracoke twice a year. One of the first things we do when we get there, is to go to the store to buy groceries. We’ll be back at the end of March!
