Ghost & History Walks

Several days ago a reader added this comment to our daily journal:

"Philip, as a frequent visitor to the island, one of the pleasures I enjoy is 'discovering' something new each time I visit -- a new place, new insight into the island's history, etc.Your latest entry mentions your Ghost & History Walks. For those of us who've never had the pleasure, can you share some insights or provide a link where we can find more details about the walks? As always, appreciate your posts. Cheers."

We (that is my daughter, Amy; Lou Ann; & I) offer ghost & history walking tours of the village of Ocracoke every Tuesday and Friday during the "season" at 7:30 in the evening. We started last week and will continue into the fall. We all enjoy sharing the stories and history, and a number of folks have signed up for the tours two or more times. You can read more about them here.

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter tells how to make a traditional wooden whistle from a myrtle branch. You can read the newsletter here.

    This has nothing to do with what you posted, but I just wanted you to know that I'm bringing my Mom to Ocracoke this September. I've been reading your journal, and all I can say is I wish life was like this everywhere. I can't wait to experience for one week what you get to have all year. Also, when we get there, I have to come to the "Village Craftsmen" just so I can shake your hand. I feel like I know you now! Looking forward to seeing everything I've been reading about.
