A Walk on Porpoise Drive – after the Hurricane

Yesterday, two weeks afterward, we walked up Porpoise Drive along the Fripp Inlet again….it looks more like a beach with rocks thrown around

This resident rode it out …the debris in front is a corner of his roof from the back of the house. He told us he also rode out Hurricane David here in 1979 and the winds this time were much stronger….he had to install two by fours across his french doors on the ocean side to keep them from blowing open….
