I published a new monthly Ocracoke Newsletter on Saturday. It includes information about several of our island cemeteries, along with a few photos. I picked a number of interesting epitaphs and quoted them. Some are just practical, others inspirational, some heart warming, and a few humorous. Here's the link: I hope you enjoy this glimpse into a corner of Ocracoke's history.

    Did anyone on Ocracoke see the blue flashes in the sky last night. My daughter lives at Va. Beach and she saw it. I read it was some sort of space "trash" burning up when it hit the atmosphere and thet it was seen from the coast of Maryland and further south. Just wondering if it was visible there.
