Second Post Today

We received a comment on a recent post that I share with you, especially if you will be on the island tonight. Anywhere on the beach should be perfect to get a good view. Here is the post:

Philip, in case you haven't heard, you should be getting a light show Tuesday evening at 8pm. NASA is scheduled to do a satellite launch out of Wallops Island, VA. Should be a great sight from Ocracoke! Wish I was going to be there to see it. For more info:


Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is a history of paved roads on Ocracoke. It may not sound very exciting, but there have been dramatic changes on the island because of the construction of paved roads a half century ago. You can read the newsletter, and see some rare photos here.

    Too bad the weather wasn't good enough for the launch!

  2. Wallops is saying the next attempt will be Thursday starting at 8pm.
