This is a good day to curl up with a good book. I think it's going to be a tad warmer than yesterday, but it's only in the upper 70s right now. And the sky is overcast. Weekends (contrary to what many people think) are the slowest days on Ocracoke. Saturdays and Sundays are change-over days for most cottages, both here and farther up the Banks. So the village is generally quieter on weekends. Sundays are good days for islanders to relax a little, maybe go to the beach, bike around the village, sit a spell on the Community Store porch, or just stay home and read. I might do it all!
Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is the second half of my father's short journal. I call it Remembering Growing up on Ocracoke. You can read it here.
