The fifth annual Ocrafolk Festival was a huge success. Hundreds of people enjoyed outstanding music, world-class storytelling, great food, lively dancing, and quality hand crafts.
The weekend wound down for two dozen of us aboard the schooner Windfall. Bob Zentz and Rick Lee, along with Captain Rob, entertained us with sea shanties, poems, and maritime stories as we sailed "in Blackbeard's wake" in Pamlico Sound.
If you missed this year's festival, consider making plans now for next year. The festival is always the first weekend in June -- and always a stellar experience.
