Tuesday Specials at the Maritime Market - 6/12

Good Morning Fellow Islanders!

It's 74 degrees on the front porch this morning, and a morning shower has
kicked up - its droplets carried on the northeasterly breeze and finding
its way under the porch ceiling. This cell joins a couple of others
passing the island overnight - renourishing the dry plantings and keeping
the lagoons full and healthy. On the radar, these cells seem to
materialize out of thin air, rather than moving as a "front" of some sort,
and they're widely scattered at present. We could go the rest of the day
without seeing another, or they could pop up at any time. Either way,
we'll see temperatures rise to the low 80's, with scattered sunshine, and
northeasterly breezes becoming easterly, then southerly toward dusk, with a
chance of a pop up shower or thunderstrom. The likelihood of pop-up
showers will persist through the week with diminished percentages as the
weekend approaches. High tide will peak soon - around 6:45 this morning.
Low tide will occur just before 1 this afernoon, and high tide returns at
about 7:15 this evening.

For breakfast this morning, Chef Marc is featuring a delicious smoked
salmon bagel, layered with cream cheese, capers & onions for just $8.95.
For lunch, Marc is presenting a cheese ravioli carbonara with shrimp for
only $11.95, or savor a pork loin a la pizzaiola - braised pork white wine,
tomatoes, peppers, herbs & onions for only $10.95. Order any of our
regular menu items on-line at [1] and your order will
be ready when you arrive.

The Pirate Invasion takes place this coming weekend, and the full schedule
of events, including parties, invasions, and pirate encampments can be

Art starting tomorrow. Betsy will teach Monday through Friday all summer,

The annual Member-Member golf tournament is fast approaching - taking place
Thursday, June 21 - Sunday, June 24. Its one of my favorite golf events of
the year, with fabulous food and great fellowship among your fellow
islanders. The Champions' Dinner kicks off the weekend on Thursday evening
- hosted by last year's winners, John Liles III and Ryland Pruett - and
the golf rounds will be played on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Find
a partner or sign up as a single, the golf professional staff will be happy
to match you with a fellow member. It's a mixed gender event, so ladies
and gentlemen are both welcome, and can even partner together to form a
team :). For more information, call Brian at the pro shop at 910-457-7310.

The pirates are coming to All About Art this Thursday from 5-7pm! Come and
meet artist Don Maitz, who is also known for his Captain Morgan Rum
advertisements. Don's art will be on display, along with some iconic
prints, so drop by for a glass of wine and some hors d'oeuvres. Allen

and the ladies from BeautyCounter will be performing makeovers.
