Back to the Island

And watch the sun go down,
Listen to the sea roll in.
I'll be thinkin' of you,
And how it might've been.
Listen to the nightbird cry,
Watch the sun set die.
Well I hope you understand
I just had to go back to the island.

-Jimmy Buffett
Back to the Island
(License to Chill)

Another year and it's time for the annual pilgrimage to the Outer Banks. We arrived in time for the Second Annual Duck Jazz Festival. I was expecting Mallards, Pintails and Canvasbacks doing a four-piece beat ensemble, but we found some real musicians pouring out some great music. A good time was had by all.

The Gnu Herd rolled into town just in time to enjoy some Jazz on the beach, then off to the Sunset Grille for some good eats.

Ahh, it's SO good to be back on the island!
