Roger Meekins, 80, boards the ferry "Neuse" on Monday, Aug. 29, 2011, in Rodanthe, NC.  Meekins was barefooted, carrying only a briefcase full of medications and his wife's jewelry.  He and his wife Celia Meekins were leaving Rodanthe for the mainland in Stumpy Point, NC, after surviving Hurricane Irene and a fire that destroyed their Rodanthe home, and all of Roger's shoes, the day before.
