It's finally beginning to feel like fall, or least that fall is "around the corner." I've turned my A/C off and opened windows and doors. The temperature has been in the low 70s yesterday and today, with a northerly breeze. What a relief from the hot humid days of August. Of course we know it probably won't last. It never does. But we are all enjoying the beginning of a new season. Besides, the village is quieter now since schools have mostly re-opened. I suppose we'll have a crowd here this weekend. And then we'll settle down to a more relaxed few months.
Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is a small photo album with historic pictures, including the aftermath of the 1944 hurricane, the 1921 Ghost Ship of the Outer Banks, the 1935 wreck of the Nomis, the Island Inn, the Methodist Church, and the Wahab Village Hotel. I've added a short paragraph under each photo to help put them in historical perspective. You can see the pictures by clicking here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news082609.htm.
