I will be off-island on another fall trip, so look for our next journal entry in about two weeks. Amy & David will be looking after my apartment, but they've declined my request to keep the journal up to date!
This seems to be "Birthday Weekend" on Ocracoke. Last night Katy Mitchell celebrated her 16th birthday at an inter-generational party and pot luck dinner at Deepwater Theater. We enjoyed lots of wonderful food, fun conversation, and, as a special treat, several budding young musicians entertained us on guitars and drums.
This afternoon Steve Harris, manager of the Pub, celebrates his 40th birthday, and this evening island native and Ocracoke park ranger, Kenny Ballance, will join with most of the island community to celebrate his 50th birthday.
And who asked "What is there to do on the island?"?
