Aloha, nya! October is the purrticularly festive month, and the spookier one at that, because although it is still quite the purrennial sunny bikini weather with puffy Cumulo-Neko clouds here, the Mid Atlantic Breeze wafts by with the occasional chill and purranormal phenomenon at night, as the appurritions might be roaming the ocean, beach, forest and town, nya! Thusly it is the purrfect time to celebrate the Halloween fun by purrticipating in our lovely local arts, foods, decorations, and the popular Trick 'R Eat and Cosplay Purrowl, nya!
The festivities across the island and the waters of Mew Hanover County range from beautiful downtown Purrbank and the lush maritme forest, to the merfolks' grotto and their deep kelp maze, nya! October's astrological signs continue with Libra from September and end with Scorpio into November, nya! The birthstones of the month are Opal and Tourmaline, but if the purrecious gem is too purricey a gift for that special kemonomimi, mermaid, taur or faerie, then we suggest the fragrant fall flowers, and the fresh seafood suppurr, nya!
Those could be arranged into the floral lei, tail corsage, the bouquet upon the suppurr table or in the pots upon the veranda, nya! In addition to Halloween, there are other observances & holidays and such as Columbus Day, Teachers Day, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, the NC State Fair, our local Opal Matsuri and Calendula Purrade, nya! The island's fishing forecast purrdicts yet another numcious bumpurr crop of the Bluefish, Groupurrs, Mackerels, Snappurs, Speckled Trout, Striped Bass and tasty Tunas to tempt the tummy, nya!
In addition to the angling, the autumnal activities to catabolize the calories include the swimming, diving, surfing, sailing, golf, tennis, kites, softball, cycling, skating, hiking, purrkour, yoga, hula, belly dance, hot salsa dance, kite flying, kyudo, jujutsu spurrlunking and beach volleyball, nya! The island boutiques are brimming with the purretty fall fashions in the bikinis, maillots, fundoshis, purreos, sarongs, yukatas. cheongsams, halter tops, skirts and shorts, nya! After the activities, dining and catnaps, purrhaps y'all might like to see
