JANUARY 17, TUESDAY
I drove over to th Carolina Beach Hardees for their delicious porkchop and gravy biscuit combo. Those are REALLY good. Several years ago when I was there, I had to tell them that they had the North Carolina state flag flying upside down. I received another compliment from the person at the front desk for the Packers upset of the Cowboys on Sunday.
I told the desk clerk that the heater in the room wasn't working and they had someone up to the room within 30 minutes to fix it.
Drove to Fort Fisher and was the only visitor there for awhile. Pleasure Island, as they now call Federal Point Peninsula from Snow's Cut, where the Intercoastal Waterway crosses over from the Cape Fear River to Masonboro Sound, to the tip of it is now essentially an island, is not overly busy during the winter, unless, of course, they are having the anniversary of the Second Battle of Fort Fisher January 15.
