Those were the good days, I haven't seen a decent run of blues in years.
While I disagree with many of the management policies by the Park Service on Cape Lookout, they have done a good job of cleaning up the islands. Most of the abandoned vehicles have been removed but a few still turn up after a storm.
You should come back for a visit. The old fishing shacks you may remember have also been removed and replaced with twenty or so rustic but serviceable (bunk beds, john, shower, stove, ceiling fan, porch) cabins located right on the beach.
