If you live on Ocracoke Island summer is the time for friends . This week I had visits from several long-time off-island friends. Clay Walthall and his wife, Julie, stopped by on Wednesday. Clay is an artist and potter. You can see his work in our gallery. His lighthouse prints are quite unique and you can see them here.
While we were chatting around the kitchen table after the Opry show John Golden, folksinger and guitarist, came by. John would be spending the night. You can read about one of John's CDs here.
Other family and friends have been stopping by also. It's a time to catch up on friends' lives and goings on.
Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is the story of the Black Squall, a brig loaded with circus animals that wrecked on Ocracoke in April of 1861. You can read it here.
