We started hustling around, closing up suitcases, throwing them in the trunk of the car, and driving up to higher ground. We all had our cell phones with us and looked for a place where we would have good reception. Was this evacuation real? After intense Google research, we discovered that it was a test - a drill. Wow, was it ever convincing! So after about 20 minutes we were able to return to the cabin, unload, and feel considerable relief.

Later I walked down to the beach and looked for some interesting driftwood - small pieces, mind you. One neighbor of Pat's has a couple dogs that like to chase a stick, and they tend to get new visitors engaged in that activity. Me included.
