Laura M., age 15, North Carolina

Up at 5:45! Rode to Ferry to get to Ocracoke. (2.5 hours in car, same in boat.) Unloaded at cabin. (Nice.) Ruth came. We all went to the beach at 3:00. Swam with Katie. Came back and showered. Watched part of “Jane Eyre.” Went on a walk with Rachel and Renita. Fun. Rachel is a total angel. Ate chicken for dinner. Good. Listened to Ruth on guitar. Sleep.
