Up at 10:00. Ate breakfast. Went into town with Katie and Renita. Saw the coolest dress, too expensive. Bought $10 shoes. Comfy. Got on 45-minute ferry to Nags Head. Enjoyable. Came to “Sea Foam Hotel.” Ha! 2 stars. Chilled with Katy, Wendy, Eric. Went to dinner at “Owens.” O.K. Went to D.Q. and then to “Lost Colony” play. Good. Slept at hotel.
