Portsmouth Homecoming

This Saturday, April 19th is the Portsmouth Island Homecoming. If you've never been it's about time you went. The day always has a magic to it. You can wander the island and easily imagine the way things used to be there and on all of the coastal Carolina islands not so long ago. You'll hear great stories, meet folks you are guaranteed never to forget and the food....non better. Bring your camera, a sense of humor and your appetite ( something to share also). Philip will be going so for those who can't go I'm sure he'll have a tale or two to tell next week. For ferry reservations (private) from Ocracoke to Portsmouth phone Capt. Rudy Austin at 252-928-4361.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is a reprint of the eulogy given at the funeral service for island native Muzel Bryant who died in February at the age of 103. You can read it here.

    Oh how wonderful! I have heard so much about the Homecoming. I will be there in 2 weeks. Wished it had been then. Can't wait to hear about it, though. I'm looking forward to meeting Philip & the Gang. Shoot, I'm just lookig forward to coming to my HOME AWAY FROM HOME. I get so eager each time we come to OBX. Pray one day, we will just find a place & stay there. Have a great OBX day!!!
