It is just barely 50 degrees, but warming up rapidly. The forecast calls for temperatures in the low to mid 60s through Thursday. I think of all the winter weather (snow, ice, sleet, and below freezing temperatures) elsewhere in the country (not that snow in December isn't beautiful, or that Ocracoke doesn't have its own share of less-than-ideal weather -- high humidity, storms, hurricanes, and rising tides)...and I'm thinking this would be a great day for a stroll along the beach! Come on out too, if you're on the island.

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is the story of the Artists' Colony that operated on the island more than 65 years ago. You can read it here.
