Autumn does not grace this island with color. No yellow ochres, or scarlets, or rusty oranges. Just the greens (forest green, blue green, and yellow-green of live oaks, cedars, and yaupons) year 'round. However, we don't have the stark grey barren limbs of winter either. But the days are growing shorter; the air is cooler; and the streets are quieter. Fall has definitely arrived on the Outer Banks.
And one historical note: On this day in 1859 the schooner "Mary" wrecked on Ocracoke's beach.
