Perfect Cannonball – Memory Monday 8/6/18

Cannonball

Greetings from a glorious Outer Banks on this Monday morning as the sun is shining brightly, the ocean is inviting, the rain has stopped (after 15 straight days of some sort of precipitation), and the temperatures are going to be in the high 80’s.   It is one of those days where you just want to jump in a pool and land a perfect cannonball!

What may be just as hard to imagine is how many truly gifted musicians call the Outer Bank home—it a number that is out of proportion to the population. READ MORE
