Several dozen islanders braved wind gusts of more than 40 mph this afternoon to attend the opening of a Preservation Society exhibit in honor of Muzel Bryant, island native who died recently at 103 years old.
In a small community like Ocracoke it's difficult to take in an exhibit like this. Every time I stepped into the room with the photos and other articles I found myself chatting and visiting with friends and neighbors. I never did take it all in. So I suppose I'll just stop by the museum some day all by myself and take the time to look more carefully.
If you weren't able to be there this afternoon please go to the museum at your next opportunity and check out the exhibit. It's downstairs in the sitting room.
By the way, several off-islanders are stranded here overnight since the ferries are tied up at the docks because of the wind.
