Greetings from Ocracoke. As for many of our readers, this week should prove to be busy for Ocracokers also. Family and friends will be arriving on the island for Thanksgiving dinners. And visitors will be here for one last walk along the beach before the winter holidays.
I will be visiting Lou Ann for Turkey Day so I have asked Jude to keep up the journal while I am gone. As usual, several off-island friends will be staying in my house, looking after things while I am gone. I'm wondering -- why do they all like to visit while I'm gone??
While I am away Jude will be keeping you up to date on island happenings. Happy Thanksgiving to all of our readers!
