Happy Halloween!

Most of the "Trick or Treaters" avoid Howard Street. I guess it's too spooky. Actually a couple of the mamas of the boys who went on the ghost walk Friday night told me how creepy the boys thought the stories were. I saw two of them tonight. One assured me he wasn't about to walk down Howard Street after dark with all those graveyards along the lane. The other one said he was going to write an expanded version of the Aunt Lorena story, and he'd have all of the dead rise up from their graves and join her on her midnight wanderings.

Just something to think about next time you are on the island!

Sleep well.

  1. Writing Howard Street ghost stories sounds like a great contest for the kids. Who knows, in addition to Aunt Lorena "rising up," you might unearth future Ocracoke scholars.
