On Monday, September 15th, the entire Surf or Sound Realty staff gathered together at the newly renovated Salvo office for the annual group photo. While it can be a challenge to get so many people organized and smiling on cue, the photo went off without a hitch with almost three dozen smiling Surf or Sound faces.
After the photo shoot, the staff celebrated the wrap-up of another successful summer season with a barbecue and pot luck buffet on the Salvo office porch. This gave everyone a chance to relax, regroup, and get ready to welcome all the fall visitors, while swapping stories of a busy Hatteras Island summer.
The food and drinks hit the spot, and most everyone agreed that taking a group picture wasn’t a bad way to spend an evening at all, especially if there was barbecue involved!
